Robbie Novak, "Kid President," Meets Actual President Obama!

April 5, 2013

Robbie Novak, the ten-year-old YouTube sensation better known as "Kid President," got a chance to meet with actual President Barack Obama on Easter.

Obama gave Novak a tour of the Oval Office, even letting him use the phone.

"Let's make sure not to cause an international incident," joked Obama, who showed Robbie other White House memorabilia, such as the emancipation proclamation.

The two also shared some advice: "You're doing awesome," Novak said.

Barack advised Robbie to show kids around the world to always treat others with respect ... something critics say the Prez did not do with Kamala Harris.

In any case, Obama praised the Internet phenomenon for his work so far.

"You keep on doing the great work that you're doing, I'll keep doing my best and between the two of us, maybe we can get things going in a good direction," he said.

Novak warmed hearts worldwide with his inspirational YouTube videos, particularly his "Presidential pep talk" video which has racked up 17.6 million views.
