Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been spearheading the investigation into foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election in an effort to uphold our nation’s democracy, needs tech support.
Mueller was apparently spotted at the Apple Store in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington D.C. seated at a table with his wife and a store employee. D.C. local @megpianta snapped a photo of the trio for her Instagram story, tagging the location.
“Give this man ALL the Genius Bar support he needs, pls,” she captioned the photo.
As the employee demonstrates something on the MacBook screen, Mueller appears to be in a state of absolute distress. Perched on an uncomfortably high stool his brow is furrowed and he wears a tightlipped grimace. Meanwhile, his wife’s glasses slide down her nose as she concentrates on the MacBook’s screen. Fingers splayed out on the table, the Apple employee appears to be bracing himself for whatever spinning wheel of death the MacBook could spring on him.
What was Mueller trying to fix? Did he, like the rest of us mortals, snack one too many times and get a few crumbs stuck under his laptop’s delicate keyboard? Did he also have to struggle with getting AirDrop to connect to his phone? Did he also have to sacrifice three business days and a goat to land a coveted appointment time?
We just have questions about this! It’s also possible that the Mueller family bought a new laptop. It does look like there is a box and possibly a receipt on the table, though Mueller seems like the type of person who saves receipts.
