transcript: President Obama: You been having fun?
Kid President: Yeah! President Obama: Come on, so this is the oval
office right here. Kid President: Cool
President Obama: I think you should try to sit behind the desk so you look even more
official. Kid President: Hello?
President Obama: Is anybody on there? Kid President: Nope!
President Obama: Okay, well let's make sure not to cause an international incident.
Kid President, what grade are you in? Kid President: Third!
President Obama: Third? Kid President: Mhm
President Obama: Third grade? Kid President: Mhm!
President Obama: This is a telegraph. Kid President: Telegraph, what's a telegraph?
President Obama: So, well a telegraph, it used to be before there were phones, before
there was the Internet, before there was Youtube, there was a telegraph and that's how you communicated
from far away! How's school going?
Kid President: Good! President Obama: It's going pretty good?
Okay because I know you got all these other activities, so much demands on your time trying to balance
being president and being in the third grade, you know, that's a lot of stuff!
Kid President: Mhm! President Obama: But you seem to be handling
it pretty well! Kid President: Very well!
President Obama: This is a program from the March on Washington where Dr. King spoke,
you heard of the "I Have a Dream" speech? So this is the original program. Somebody
gave that to me. Of course there's Abraham Lincoln, one of
the most famous and one of my favorite presidents. Kid President: Mine too!
President Obama: The, uh, any advice for me as just an ordinary president as opposed to
Kid President? Kid President: Hmm, I have one, well it's
not really advice, it's just how you are doing. You're doing awesome!
President Obama: You think I'm doing awesome? Kid President: Mhm!
President Obama: Thank you, that means a lot to me. I think you're doing awesome. So both
of us we got a lot of responsibilities but we're handling our business.
Kid President: How can kids and grown-ups work together to change the world?
President Obama: The most important thing we can all do is to treat each other with
kindness and respect. Alright, so kids, they can learn right away in school and on the
playground to be nice to each other and if you see a kid being picked on you make sure you stand
up for them and treat everybody fairly, you know, no matter what they look like or where
they are from, and if you start learning to do that as kids and everybody is respectful
of each other and nice to each other, then when they grow up they'll be doing the same
thing and we'll have a lot fewer problems, don't you think?
Kid President: Yeah. President Obama: I think that makes sense.
This is the Emancipation Proclamation that Abraham Lincoln signed to free the slaves.
And this is a bust of Dr. Martin Luther King. You keep on doing the great work that you're
doing, I'll try to do my best, between the two of us we can kind of get things going
in a good direction. Now even though we're presidents can we still
hug? Is that okay? Kid President: Yup!
President Obama: Alright I just want to make sure. Thanks man!
Kid President: You're welcome! President Obama: You work hard in school too,
give me a high five! Kid President: Nice to meet you!
