This kid might be the most fierce up-and-coming journalist of them all.
While interviewing President Obama at a “virtual field trip” hosted by Discovery Education on Thursday, a student cut off the President as he was answering a question.
Speaking on the topic of writer’s block, Obama said, “Even the best writers, usually it’s not that good the first time they write it.”
Osman Yahya, a sixth grader from Salisbury, Maryland, was ready to move on: “I think you’ve sort of covered everything about that question,” he said as the audience laughed.
The President responded in stride, estimating that Yahya felt he’d been talking too long. “No, let’s move it along,” he said at the event, held at Anacostia Library in Washington, D.C.
During the event, Obama announced a new White House program that would provide 10,000 e-books to low-income children.
He also spoke of his post-presidency: “I’ll be done being president in a couple of years and I’ll still be a pretty young man, he said. “And so I’ll go back to doing the kinds of work I was doing before, just trying to find ways to help people, help young people get educations, help people get jobs, and try to bring businesses into neighborhoods that don’t have enough businesses.”
