It is the pilot's responsibility to check NOTAMS and TFRs before departure, whether it's a VFR or IFR local or cross country flight.

How could he have known? Sounds to me like a private pilot flying VFR and not knowing that the President of the United States was departing at that time. Also, the F-16s could have just vectored him away talking to the pilot on UNICOMM instead of forcing him down.

by calling Flight Service like we all do/should before EVERY flight to check for TFR's, NOTAMS, and Wx

Sounds to me like the folks on the ground wanted to talk to him, as far as the forcedown. As far as the rest of it, looks like Toby & Thrusst have answered you well.
