I can't see the president or anyone else with a working brain asking such a question in that context.

Which part?

The encounter didn't occur?

The statements weren't made?

Who heard it and reported it to whom?

There are other sites w/pictures and more but nothing from a mic. I think Obama knows who he is and knows when he should be careful...or I hope he does. I can't imagine "Are you gay?" as being the sort of question a person in their right mind would ask a stranger. I can imagine that someone reporting the encounter might add their own embellishments to whatever they might have heard or seen.

The guy was talking about gay people

Seems like a logical question.

As for cutting in line, the Secret Service was probably having heart attacks. He would rather cut in line than shut the place down so the SS would let him in. He would have been criticized for that as well.

The article had him as a part time comedian

Unless someone recorded this or could confirm the conversation and its tone, I don't feel a need to make anything out of it. He could have just been messing around or even baiting the president catching him off guard. As well, it may never have happened as it was reported. I'm giving Obama a break here (and I've not done much of that lately). I don't think he'd deliberately make such a remark.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
