Buoyed by the success of yesterday’s visit to Reddit, President Obama decides to reach out to other communities on the internet.
4chan: “Hi, I’m the President” becomes the latest meme, with thousands of users posting the phrase in the hours after Obama’s visit. Annoyed, Anonymous uses the EXIF data in Obama’s verification photo to track down his location to “somewhere on Pennsylvania Avenue”.
Buzzfeed: Interview goes well until an editor steps in and begins ranking POTUS’ answers while he’s still giving them.
Tumblr: The President writes a stunning 5,000 word takedown/indictment of the American political system, and pledges to legalize marijuana, allow gay marriage, and cease drone killings. He doesn’t include any cool gifs, however, so the post is ignored in favor of a photoshop of Obama as Gus Fring from Breaking Bad.
