Kid President Goes to the White House to Meet Obama [Video]


I know when something is completely adorable when it makes me feel like my faith in humanity has been restored just a little. I get that warm and fuzzy feeling when I read about someone doing something nice for someone else, or even see a picture of two unlikely animal friends (cliché, I know). But some of my favorite adorable videos are the ones by Kid President.

If you haven’t heard of Kid President, he’s one of the faces of SoulPancake, a media company created in 2009 by The Office actor Rainn Wilson and two of his friends, Joshua Homnick and Devon Gundry. Kid President gives speeches like a pro, inspiring all who watch and inducing quite a lot of awwws. He even recently helped the White House stage an April Fools’ Day prank, with them tweeting a video link to “a special video message from the President.” The podium in the briefing room was then occupied by the Kid President himself, 9 year-old Robby Novak, and not actually President Obama himself.

And now, Kid President has had the honor of visiting the big guy in his place of residence, the White House! Watch this adorable video to see President Obama giving a tour of the White House to Kid President, even letting him sit at his desk in the Oval Office.

I drink a lot of coffee. A LOT. And love animated movies a lot. A LOT. I'm also interested in books, TV, movies, and whatever project any current or former Saturday Night Live cast member might be working on (here's looking at you, Andy Samberg). Questions I often ask myself: "How many romantic comedy references is too many?" and "Are five puns excessive for one sentence?"
