Published by Business Insider on Thu, 14 Jul 2016

"Mr. Robot" has clearly been a fan favorite, but did the hacker drama's critical acclaim and strange knack for predicting actual events help it snag a cameo by President Obama on Thursday's two-part premiere of season two'Within the first 10 minutes of the premiereepisode, POTUS appears on a TV screen during a press conference about the major financial hack from season one that erased billions of dollars in consumer debt and sent the world economy into a tailspin.Viewers watched the actual Obama say, "The FBI announced today, and we can confirm, that Tyrell Wellick and F Society engaged in this attack."Many "Mr. Robot" fanstook notice online:Yooo Obama on #MrRobot.
