Online video stars Bethany Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green interview President Obama this afternoon.
Three of YouTube’s most popular creators are graduating to the White House.
As a follow-up to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, YouTube creators Bethany Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green will live stream their interview with President Obama in the Green Room this afternoon. The YouTubers have asked their subscribers to provide questions to ask Obama by using #YouTubeAsksObama on social media.
In the past, YouTubers have asked Obama questions via Google+ Hangouts, but this is the first time creators will travel to Washington D.C. and interview POTUS in the White House. Hank Green’s brother, John Green, bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars, asked the President about eliminating the penny via Google+ Hangout in 2013.
