Three Popular YouTube Stars Interview President Obama Live from the White House

Three popular YouTube stars—Hank Green, GloZell Green and Bethany Mota—met with President Barack Obama at the White House today (January 22, 2015 at 5:00 PM EST), as planned, in order to discuss the “top issues facing them and their audiences.”

Each year, the President typically spends the days following a State of the Union address answering questions and elaborating on the plans he’s laid out for the year. That can mean interviews with reporters, speeches across the country, or even chatting with folks from their homes. But because we’re constantly looking for ways to reach folks we don’t usually get to talk to, today we’re doing something different: We’ve invited three of YouTube’s top content creators to the White House to interview the President about the issues they — and their audiences — care most about.

Earlier in the day, GloZell shared her experience and her excitement of going to the White House to meet the President of the United States.

Hank Green also shared his wonderfully honest behind-the-scenes experience.
