The football contains, among other things, the top secret nuclear launch codes to which only the US President has access.
Obama explained his mishap as follows: “I was just eagerly watching the first election forecasts, when I suddenly realised to my great dismay that the nuclear football was missing. What a scatterbrain I am!”
|Not under the couch or the writing desk, nor buried in the garden by Bo: the nuclear briefcase remains lost.|
By his own admission, Obama unfortunately has no time for a more extensive search, since he has to leave the White House within two months. “I still have to do some decorative repairs for the handover. Currently, I’m busy painting all the rooms pink.”
This was not to be the last of the President’s mishaps, either. Shortly after Trump’s election victory was officially announced, an embarrassed Obama stepped up to the microphone once again to disclose how he had ‘stupidly’ dropped a glass containing highly aggressive termites which could cause severe damage to the White House prior to the handover.
