President Barack Obama’s credit card gets declined, First Lady Michelle steps in to pay for their meal

What a fun date night!

Vanity Fair reported on Sunday that US President Barack Obama had a curious incident with his credit card on date night. While signing an Executive Order protecting citizens against credit card fraud, he shared that his own card got declined at a restaurant in New York.


"Turns out, I guess I don't use it enough. They thought there was some fraud going on," President Obama told reporters at the Consumers Financial Protection Bureau. Obama said that he tried to explain to the attendant that he has been paying his bills, but in the end, First Lady Michelle Obama had to step in and use her credit card to pay the bill.


Hey, at least they know that the consumers are protected against identity theft!
