President Obama has given his final State of the Union address to Congress, which was broadcast live on YouTube. Then, as he has every year after the speech, he’ll turn to YouTube and Google to take questions from Americans about the issues that matter to them on Friday.
So, this Friday, January 15, Destin Sandlin, Ingrid Nilsen, and Adande Thorne—three popular YouTube creators—will travel to Washington, D.C. to host a live YouTube Interview with President Obama. They’ll join the President in the East Room of the White House, asking a selection of questions that are top of mind for them and their fans.
Netizens can watch the whole thing on the White House YouTube channel—and if they have a question for the President, they can suggest it by using the hashtag #YouTubeAsksObama on social media.
The interview will stream live on the White House YouTube channel on Friday, January 15 at 2:15 p.m. EST.
Throughout his time in office, President Obama has used technology to open up the doors (all 412 of them) to the White House—from posting behind-the-scenes photos of life in the West Wing to uploading a weekly address on the most pressing topics facing the nation.
"We’re excited to have played a role in this process with our seven YouTube Interviews, tackling issues big and small,poignant and personal. We look forward to helping future presidents connect with Americans in compelling ways," said Ramya Raghavan of Google Politics.[category, world] [tags, youtube, president obama, live streaming, post union address, interview, google team, youtube team, obama interview to youtube, ]GE URL Ramya Raghavan Google Po
