Obama’s Credit Card Rejected

“I should mention, by the way, that I went to a restaurant up in New York when I was there during the General Assembly [last month], and my credit card was rejected,” President Barack Obama said at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau after signing an executive order to strengthen security for credit and debit cards.

Luckily for the president, the first lady was there and able to pick up the tab.
