  • You know, it depends on how your back is. I know you've got the "back issues."

  • No, no.

  • (doing push-ups)

  • While I was in D.C., I went to the White House and I stole something.

  • It's Bo Obama, I took their dog.

  • Michelle, you can get him back if you admit that you cheated in our push-up contest.

  • Thank you.

  • I apologize for doing it but I broke your retweet record.

  • I thought that's a pretty cheap stunt myself.

  • We have a little presidential expert, her name is Macey Hensley and I'd like you to meet her.

  • This is a big moment, whatever you want to ask, what's your first question?

  • So, is there really a book of secrets?

  • Umm lower than that.

  • and seeing the process that we've made,

  • seeing the incredible resilience of the American people,
