“It looks like you were expecting someone else.”
On April 1st, the White House tweeted that there would be a special video presentation from President Obama. As The Daily Mail says, “The date on the calendar could have – should have – been a dead giveaway.”
Instead of the president, ‘Kid President’ showed up. He’s nine-year-old Robby Novak, a diminutive mini-me version of Obama who has become an online viral sensation thanks to his YouTube videos and an inspirational speech at one of the big-ideas conferences known as TED.
‘It looks like you were expecting somebody else,’ Novak began as he appeared behind the White House briefing room podium. ‘April Fool’s on all y’all!’
If Kid President looks familiar, there’s a reason! The adorable Robby Novak was also in another recent viral video called, “A Pep Talk from Kid President to You”, which is a fantastic, inspirational video for bringing humanity together and “giving the world a reason to dance”. You can see that video here if you haven’t already seen it. It’s absolutely worth a watch.
Love this kid!
