After running the country for eight years, former President Barack Obama definitely deserves a break. But you might not expect to see the 44th president taking that break on one of your favorite apps. On Wednesday night, users of the game app HQ Trivia were surprised to see a user named “Obama,” complete with Barack Obama’s picture as one of the 91 winners of the game. Disappointingly, Obama's former communications director told PEOPLE he was not playing the game at the time, as he was busy celebrating Michelle's birthday.
