The man has to make a lot of public announcements and pronouncements so it's no surprise, really, that he wants to drop the odd gag. Plenty of these gags have been kind of geeky too, in keeping with his ongoing interest in pop culture. In just the last week he had the White House issue a statement expressing sympathy on the passing of Harold Ramis, last week he requested early screening copies of True Detective.
