HQ is a trivia game app that is sweeping the nation, drawing at times a million players a game (the fact that you can win real money probably adds to its popularity).
But is it so popular even former President Obama is addicted? That’s what host and “Quiz Daddy” Scott Rogowsky seemed to say in an Instagram posted Wednesday, showing a named “Obama” winning $21.98 in the nightly game.
“The audacity of HQ,” he wrote.
Well sorry to ruin the party, but a spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that it wasn’t actually Obama. For good reason too, it was Michelle Obama’s birthday on Wednesday!
“President Obama is as competitive a trivia player as anybody, but he was celebrating his wife’s birthday last night with dinner and a play,” spokesperson Katie Hill said. “In other words, not exactly the most conducive environment for gaming on a phone.”
