Kid President meets the President of the United States of America

-You been having fun?


-It has been fun, hasn't it?

-Come on. So this is the Oval Office right here.

And I think you should try to sit behind the desk

so you look a little more official.



Kid President, what grade are you in?


-Third? -Mm-hmm.

-Third grade? -Mm-hmm.

-This is a telegraph.

-Telegraph. What's a telegraph?

-Well, a telegraph, it used to be before there were phones,

before there was the Internet, before there was YouTube,

we would use a telegraph,

and that's how you'd communicate from far away.

How's school going? -Good.

-It's going pretty good?

Okay, so, 'cause I know you got all these other activities.

-Yeah. -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.


-But you seem to be handling it pretty well.

-Very well. -You do.

This is a program

from the March on Washington where Dr. King spoke.

Have you heard of the "I Have a Dream" speech?

So this is the original program of that.

Somebody gave that to me.

Of course, this is Abraham Lincoln.


-One of the most famous

and one of my favorite presidents.

-Mine, too.

-Any advice for me as just an ordinary President

as opposed to Kid President?

-I have one.


-Well, it's not really advice,

it's just how you're doing.

You're doing awesome. -You think I'm doing awesome?

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.

-The most important thing we can all do

is to treat each other with kindness and respect.


So kids, they can learn right away,

you know, 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 him

and you treat everybody fairly, you know,

no matter what they look like or where they're 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?

-Yeah. -I think so.

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, maybe we can kind of

get things going in a good direction.

Now even though we're Presidents, can we still hug?

Is that okay? All right. I just want to make sure.

Thanks, man. -You're welcome.

-All right, and you work hard in school, too.

Give me a high-five. Okay.

-[ Beatboxing ]

Nice to meet you.

-How you doing? You having a good day?


-Did you see the President?


-You did? That's awesome. -Mm-hmm.

-Hi, man.

-What did he say?

-He said hi. We did small talk.
