Obama Mocks Samsung Over Exploding Galaxy Note 7 [Video]

U.S. President Barack Obama made fun of Samsung and its Galaxy Note 7 that catches fire during a recent speech.

Speaking at Miami Dade collage in Florida on the Affordable Care Act, Obama likened issues with Obamacare to new smartphones hitting the market.

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. Unless it catches fire and then they just, then they pull it off the market.

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

Take a look at the video below...

I genuinely hope your name doesn't reflect you political support. Supporting candidates that don't have more than 7% of the vote makes no sense. You might as well not vote at all. Your vote would have zero impact on this election :/ personally I feel like Trump is the best option but at least choose a side.

Wow, what a clueless, biased comments here. So called middle class (these people who mostly adding comments here) obviously have no clue what is going on in the US these days. Also, I can see a lot of health system experts here. I just wish all of you were called and helped with you expertise. And maybe you can help with political system, news networks, choosing right candidates for president, fix college prices, etc. But wait, you rather just place comments and save some money which otherwise you will spent for bunch of sessions with psychotherapist and meds. Aren't you lucky that forums and comments exist on the internet? If not, you will end up in sanatorium long time ago. Have a nice day and keep up a good work by keeping us up to date with current situation on this planet and your expertise.

It's a disaster eating away at over half of the countries budget along with Medicare and Medicaid. Poor people always got treated long before obamacare. If you ever worked in a hospital you would remember that it is illegal to turn away someone without insurance. All it did was raise monthly premiums for the people who aren't eligible for Medicaid but still poor. It's a disaster and everyone knows it. It's not even considered kind of good. It's naive comments like "all the poor people have insurance now" that keep people like Obama and Clinton in elected. The healthcare system was messed before it but Obamacare is a failure. I bet you are in favor of free college tuition too.

Obamacare has done worse than catch on fire. Pull it off the market.
Great! - October 22, 2016 at 11:36pm
Why? Obamacare js working for many poorer people who had no insurance. Only the richer folks think that it is crap.

Yea I have no idea why I have to support your health insurance with my hard earned money when especially someone like yourself is not even have decency of feeling grateful the fact that people who is out there working hard and make living. Do you think it is targeting the only rich people? I don't ducking think so. Middle class people gets affected by this crap too. You have a health insurance, but you can't see the damn doctor because they charge you over thousands of dollars for just having a little chit-chat. This health insurance and and hospitals in the U.S. are downright thieves if you ask me

This is awful. President Obama's comment weren't really about Samsung. They were simply a swipe at the Republican Congress. It's the old adage "never let an opportunity go to waste," a philosophy championed by his administration. He simply didn't care about any collateral damage to Samsung's badly tarnished reputation. This in spite of the fact that Samsung is a very important player in the world economy and the most important player in South Korea's economy, a critical ally in that part of the world. If this is what passes as 'acting presidential' in this day and age, may God have mercy on our souls.

What are the odds if his time for president is almost up? On top of this, what chances will iPhone get this treatment like note 7 did?

lol that was funny. He is just making a comparison that will make sense to the now generation. Funny how we all makes jokes about the Note 7 and it's funny. There are memes all over Twitter. The president makes a joke and all of a sudden some jump on it as wrong smh.

TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP to any of you who disagree ISIS has already said they will place operatives in the refugees coming into the US. #TrojanHorse Clinton has already said there's no way to run background checks on the refugees so we have no idea which ones are coming here to seek a prosperous life and which have bad intentions towards the US.

Donal needs to go back to Europe with his descendants and also take his wife that of course she not also 100% NATIVE AMERICAN LIKE ME!!!

You're an idiot liar; Hillary has never said anything of the sort; refugees are screened HEAVILY and there is no meaningful improvement in that process that Trump could impose. You guys are a bunch of brainwashed suckers. Go away.
:D - October 23, 2016 at 2:49am
Actually if you would watch the presidential debates when Donald trump asked how she planned to run full background checks in every refugee she said and I quote "there would be no way of knowing that level of information" it's funny how lib tards like you only choose what you want to hear :) nice try though!
:D - October 23, 2016 at 2:51am
Well good luck when ISIS infiltrates the 550% increase of refugees that Clinton wants to bring into the country and starts attacking us from the inside. :) don't act like it won't happen, ISIS already said it would as did Islamic states.

Your cowardice is larger than your common sense. Please go see a therapist soon.
