The Obamas Have Some Advice For The Next First Couple In Super Bowl Interview

By Marina Fang

WASHINGTON — When President Barack Obama sat down for his last pre-Super Bowl interview on Sunday, an annual White House tradition, he shared some pretty practical advice for his successor: the Wi-Fi at the White House is not the best.

“The whole tech thing, we’ve been trying to get that straight for the next group of folks,” he told CBS’ Gayle King. “This is an old building, so there are a lot of dead spots where the Wi-Fi doesn’t work.”

For the first time, first lady Michelle Obama joined the president in the yearly tradition. King asked her if she had some “ideas” for her future, observing that one of the candidates in the 2016 presidential race, Hillary Clinton, is a former first lady.

But Obama demurred.

“Ideas about what? What are you talking about, Gayle?” she asked King.

To conclude the interview, King asked the president to make a Super Bowl prediction, handing him an envelope that will be sealed until Monday.

“Is this like Price Waterhouse?” he joked, referring to the accounting firm that tabulates the votes for the Oscars.

President Obama will tape a separate interview with King, which will air Monday on CBS.
