The Washington Post (April 14) reported President Obama's off-the-cuff remark during a meeting with donors in Chicago held on April 13th under the title: "Obama riffs with donors: Where are the cool phones, and did you hear about the emir?"
In this remark, he said:
I'm like, c'mon guys. I'm the president of the United States.
What does this phrase mean? A dictionary at hand tells me c’mon means "come on."
Is he boasting of his being president? Or he is bitching on absence of advanced communication gadgets available at the site? The copy in question reads:
The president, in an unscripted moment with donors in Chicago, was talking about the need to innovate in technology.
"The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff," he said during a small fundraising event at a Chicago restaurant. "I'm like, c'mon guys, I'm the president of the United States. Where's the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn't happen."
