YouTube Stars Interview President Obama [Video]

It goes without saying that securing an interview with the President of the United States is not exactly an easy feat. You can’t just email Barack Obama’s publicist a few news clips you’ve written and ask for a sit down chat with him. So when it was announced that three lucky YouTubers would have the chance to interview the President, we were totally floored.

Bethany Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green were the insanely fortunate three who got the privilege to interview President Obama today (Jan. 22), and we’ve got the highlights for you.

Each of the YouTubers brought their own sets with them to the White House, to create a more individual feel for each of their interviews. All three assembled their own list of questions not previously seen by the President, ensuring a candid answer. They all ask a good amount of political questions, with Hank rounding his out with a query about the legalization of marijuana. GloZell starts off by mentioning the infamous Sony hacking scandal that segued nicely into a discussion about cyber security. The two also discuss racial profiling, undoubtedly a hot button issue in the country, as well as gay marriage. Finally, Bethany asks questions about college, our education system, bullying and more.

It’s an illuminating discussion, and interesting to see the way President Obama has embraced a younger generation by taking part in these interviews. Check out the full interview in the video above, and let us know your thoughts!
