Middle school student, Osman Yahya, interviewed President Obama earlier this week, and asked a viewer submitted question about techniques to fight off writer’s block.
Apparently, the President’s response became a little too long-winded for the 6th grade student, as he continuously shifted in his seat while Obama droned on, finally interrupting him by saying “Yeah, I think you’ve sort of covered everything about that question.”
Watch the humorous exchange below…
During the event, hosted by Discovery Ed, Yahya brought up a viewer submitted question about how the president gets rid of writer’s block.
Obama began by explaining to the audience what writer’s block was, suggesting that the best way to beat it was to start writing things down. As Obama went on, Yahya’s attention waned as he shifted in his seat.
Obama’s answer went on as he talked about experiencing writer’s block when he wrote some of his speeches. He rambled for more than three minutes before Yahya politely intervened.
“Yeah,” he said, “I think you’ve sort of covered everything about that question,” he said as the audience laughed.
Yahya would later admit to having a perfectly acceptable excuse for cutting off the leader of the free world – lunch!
The student told Politico that he was simply “nudging him to get on” because “most students were hungry.”
What did you think of the young interviewer’s efforts to get Obama to move on and stop boring his classmates?
