In the weeks running up to his unemployment, Barack Obama sure is making the most of his Presidency. Last week alone, he managed to get Stephen Colbert to look at his CV, had the likes of Chance the Rapper, Frank Ocean, and Jerry Seinfeld at his final state dinner, and guest edited a magazine.

The latter residency in charge of Wired has led to numerous revelations, such at Obama letting the world know his eight favourite sci-fi films
