YouTubers Interview President Obama: He Reveals His Ideal Super Power
Internet and political history was made today. YouTube stars Hank Green, Bethany Mota and GloZell Green each got to sit down and talk with President Barack Obama for a special live stream event, "The YouTube Interview with President Obama," at The White House.
The prez discussed topics that particularly affect young people, including his goals of two years free community college and a higher minimum wage, plus the importance of a free, open Internet. He also answered questions regarding numerous topics from his State of the Union address earlier this week.
However, the interview wasn't all serious business. Bethany played a fun "lighting round" with the president, asking him questions submitted by her fans. Obama revealed he likes to watch SportsCenter in his free time, he wanted to be an architect growing up or an NBA player and if he could have one super power, it'd be to fly or be able to speak every language.
GloZell even gave Obama a special present, matching green lipstick for First Lady Michelle Obama and the first daughters. "I'm going to ask Michelle to try it on, maybe tonight," said Obama. LOL! Plus, he posed for a selfie with the group.
While interviewing the president was an amazing opportunity for these three YouTube creators, Obama stressed that this was also an important chance for him to reach these social media stars' young audiences and talk to them about what the government does.
