Samsung is in a bad situation right now and being made fun of due to the Note 7 disaster isn't really something that's new for the company at this point of time. Rival companies had done it before and the internet is still filled with memes, comments and jokes about the explosive nature of the Note 7. However, an unexpected verbal dab was delivered by the President of the United States himself yesterday, while he was speaking about Obamacare in Miami. In the words of Barrack Obama himself,
"When one of these companies comes out with a new smartphone... [and] it has a few bugs, what do they do?"
"They fix it, [they] upgrade it."
"Unless it catches fire - then they pull it off the market".
The last line was accompanied by a chuckle to highlight that it was just a joke. He then proceeded to state,
"But you don't go back to using a rotary phone! You don't say, well we're repealing smartphones - we're just gonna do the dial-up thing."
The analogy was only used to defend Obamacare and explain how it is the same as releasing a smartphone and then patching it up with updates and upgrades over time to improve the product. However, when President Obama burns you like that, it's "gonna" singe!
