Robbie Novak, the 9-year-old YouTube sensation better known as “Kid President,” has made it all the way to the Oval Office.

In a video posted on YouTube, the Kid President is seen meeting with the real President Barack Obama. Novak was given a tour of the Oval Office, talked with Obama about how kids and adults can work together to change the world and even sits behind the big desk in the Oval Office to play with the phone.

“Is anybody on there?” the Commander in Chief joked. “Let’s make sure not to cause an international incident.”

On the tour, Obama also shows the third-grader from Tennessee White House memorabilia, including a telegraph, a program from the day of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream’’ speech, a painting of Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.

 

The 9-year-old “self-appointed voice of a generation” originally warmed hearts around the globe with his inspirational YouTube videos, particularly his “Presidential Pep Talk” video which has racked up more than 18 million views.
