Everyone forgets their phone at one point in their life and US President Barack Obama is no different. Just before boarding Marine One on Friday, President Obama did a three-pocket check and realized he forgot his cell phone.
It could happen to anyone, Mr. President. Obama forgets his phone, just like regular people.
Obama shuffled back to the White House to grab it before heading off to Chicago for various fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee and House races.
It’s another one of those rare, humanizing glimpses that have become more common as a looser, more relaxed Obama enters his last months in office. He might travel with the nuclear codes, but he forgets his phone in the morning just like the rest of us.
According to the White House pool report, he was followed after by Valerie Jarrett, Eric Schultz, and personal aide Joe Paulsen.
