WASHINGTON — Sometimes, presidents are just like us. Tuesday was one of those days, when President Obama tried to shoot some video with an iPad and ended up looking pretty dorky.
On a visit to a Maryland Middle School where he announced a massive new public-private partnership aimed at boosting high-speed internet access for America’s students, the president toured a classroom where students were using iPads as part of their course work. Obama grabbed one of the devices and tried to start filming the students, the press corps and his assembled staff.
He forgot to press “record,” however. When a student pointed it out, Obama looked sheepish.
“Oh, I haven’t been recording this whole time?” Obama said to the student whose iPad he grabbed. “I thought you already had it on record, Kevin.”
Once Kevin helped the president press record, he was able to go about making his iPad video.
