  • You should try.

  • No.

  • C'mon, Stella.

  • - Stella... Listen... - Try, try, try, try...

  • - I can't... I can't sing like that. - What's your song?

  • -But... - La la la la la... come on!

  • - Well, there you go. - That was...

  • The First Lady was pretty good.

  • Hi President Obama and Michelle, it's Seble from Brooklyn.

  • Are you going to have a big party before you leave office?

  • If so, could I come?

  • Seble, we are gonna have a big party before we leave office.

  • But I will be honest with you, it's gonna be after your bed time.

  • It's gonna be kind of a grown-up party.

  • But, if you want to come and see some of the Christmas decorations, we'll see if we can be in touch.

  • Hi President Obama and Mrs. Obama.

  • My name is Amira, and I'm 5 years old.

  • What advice do you give to 5-year-old girls who want to be President of the United States?

  • Oh, well, Amira, I think that the most important thing is for you to work hard, and to study in school, and to care about people, and start helping them now.

  • You don't have to be president to help people.

  • 5 years old, or 6 years old, or 7 years old...

  • You can be helpful to your mom and dad, you can be helpful to your teachers, you can be helpful to your classmates and your friends.

  • And as you get older, you can find other ways to be helpful to people.

  • And if you are caring about other people and treating them well, then you may end up being president someday.

  • And if you don't end up being a president, it's because you'll find other ways where you can do great things.

  • Hi President Obama and Mrs. Obama,

  • My name is Jacob, and I'm 5 years old, and I want to know, who tells more jokes?

  • Oh, gosh... The President tells more bad jokes.

  • I will say this, Jacob, Michelle is actually funnier than me, mainly because she teases me but I can't tease her.

  • I think that's fair.

  • So, she makes a lot of fun of my ears.

  • Oh, they're so big.

  • She talks about how gray my hair's become.

  • So white.

  • She talks about how slow I talk.

  • Ugh, god, he's slow.

  • I can't say anything about her, 'cause she gets mad.

  • Nope, you can't.

  • So, I guess she's funnier.

  • Alright, you can answer.

  • I am Absalon, and I am 8 years old.

  • Barack Obama, you've been my president for my whole life, and Michelle, will you be my president in 4 to 8 years?

  • Oh, my goodness.

  • I think that might have been prompted.

  • Absalon, how are you, sweetie?

  • No, I'm not gonna run for president, but what I wanna make sure you do is that you go to school, you get good grades, because we're looking to you to possibly be a president one day, too.

  • But you can't do that if you don't study, and do your homework, and listen to your parents.

  • But, we are out.

  • And laugh at your dad's jokes; I think that's very important to being a future president.

  • Hi, I'm Jonathan, this is Scrabble.

  • We want to know what was the naughtiest thing your dogs have ever done in the White House?

  • Ah, that's easy.

  • Well, you tell it, 'cause you're always mad at Sunny.

  • So, Sunny... is a wonderful dog.

  • Sunny is our younger dog.

  • But there have been times where she just decided that the area near the Lincoln Bedroom and my office at the other end of the hall from her crate...

  • is included in being outside when it comes to pooping.

  • Which is not true.

  • It's still the inside...

  • - But she didn't always understand that... - Seems so faraway...

  • But she does know that she...

  • She knows she's doing something wrong because, like, she'll just run and sneak.

  • She sneaks.

  • And sometimes I'll be in my office, and I'm doing my work, and I'll see this, like scurrying...

  • and I've got to get up and run before she does her thing, 'cause if I'm too late, then there's a little gift that she leaves.

  • She hasn't done that in a while.

  • She's gotten much better.

  • She's gotten... better but...

  • She doesn't do that as often; she's a grown up.

  • - Terrible. - She's not a puppy anymore.

  • It's disgusting.

  • Hi, my name is Tula, I'm four and three-quarters.

  • Do you guys ever have bad dreams?

  • Oh, yeah, yeah, we have bad dreams all the time.

  • You know, one of my worst dreammy recurring dream is that I procrastinated too much in college and I'm behind on exams.

  • You still have those dreams?

  • - I still have that dream! - Wow!

  • I have to wake myself... I'm sorry, Tula, I didn't... I'm losing myself in horror of that dream.

  • But, yeah, I still have bad dreams.

  • And sometimes when I have a bad dream, I just have to wake up and get up.

  • What about you?

  • - I actually don't have bad dreams too much. - Oh, come on!

  • No, I don't, 'cause when I go to sleep, I'm so tired...

  • You don't do anything.

  • He does snore.

  • I snore.

  • She's told... she told people earlier on about that. That's okay.

  • She can do that.

  • - I can't tell people about her stuff. - You can't. No, you can't.

  • - Let's see what Stella wants to know. - It works differently.

  • President Obama, my name is Stella.

  • I'm 5 years old.

  • This is my song.

  • La la la la la. What's yours?

  • Yeah, what's yours?

  • Stella, I... I can't perform like that.

  • Uhh, you clearly have some talent.

  • But you should try.

  • No.

  • C'mon, Stella.

  • - Stella... Listen... - Try, try, try, try...

  • - I can't... I can't sing like that. - What's your song?

  • -But... - La la la la la... come on!

  • - Well, there you go. - That was...

  • The First Lady was pretty good

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • You've got talent, keep on working on it.

  • The air guitar thing I especially like.

  • Ask your parents if... maybe you can find a real guitar at some point, 'cause I think you're going places.

  • - Thank you guys. - Was that it? - That's it.

You should try.
