  • 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! Jay Carney: How are you doing?

  • You having a good day? Did you see the president? You did? That's awesome!

  • Kid President: Hi man! [off camera]: What did he say?

  • Kid President: He said "hi" we just small talk.
