You’ve probably already seen this by now. Your mom sent it to you and you were like “ugh, mom, I know, you’re the worst, stay out of my room.” My long weekend was much-needed, or at the very least much-wanted, but it was perhaps not much-well-timed. You go away for one day and Damon Weaver achieves his lifelong dream of interviewing President Barack Obama?! But maybe instead of pointing fingers and talking about who should never be allowed to go on vacation like a normal adult human being, we should all just enjoy how great this is. Because it really is great. They are homeboys now. So, in addition to learning some of Barack Obama’s goals for reforming the American education system, I also learned that 11-year-olds still use the word “homeboy.” I didn’t know!

“I suggest that we have french fries and mangoes every day for lunch.” DAMON WEAVER FOR THE PRESIDENT. Let’s paint, exercise, and interview people, if interviewing people is what we want to do. Maybe not. But whatever it may be, I am sure that we can do it all. Let’s go, you guys!! (Thanks for the tip, Dave, Audrey, Matthew, and Paul.)

UPDATE: Here is Damon Weaver on the Early Show, talking about what it’s like when dreams really do come true. (Via Paul Scheer.)

  1. Is it perhaps time for a Videogum Damon Weaver Promise?

    I hope Damon’s school can still afford sex ed in their budget. Damon needs to be safe with all the girls he’s going to get. He is very tall and nice!!! Perfect.

  4. Obama won’t commit to mangoes?! This is outrageous! Just like a socialist, to deny our American children mangoes and french fries for lunch. What is this, Russia??

  5. “President Obama is now my homeboy too”

    I think that says it all. Seriously, we need to start printing that on money.

  6. i hope this kid makes it.

  7. No birth certificate questions? I thought Weaver played hardball.

  8. Damon is like a ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ trailer in baby human form, he just makes me so happy.

    Talkradio/cablenews needs so much nothing but Damon Weaver (and his bumbling cameraman Omari!), with his preciousness, tiring out his arm with the microphone holding, just talkin’ ’bout homeboys and mangoes.

  9. Agreed that Damon is adorable, but I’m a little shocked that none of these replies show some love for the other dude in this interview. Don’t take your Obama for granted, you guys. Your President has not only had one of the most active first six months in the history of Presidenting, he also USED TO DUNK. South Korea’s leader is a four-inch tall toy. My Prime Minister was created in an autoparts plant in Ontario. And your President USED TO DUNK. I heard that the toilets in the White House have developed speech because of all the excess charisma Obama craps out at the end of every day.

  10. Obama love french fries and he knows it. He totally shut down Weaver’s hopes and dreams. Nobody wants arugula school lunches. I can’t find the video on CNN, but Damon’s interview with Wolf Blitzer is as awesome as this one.

  11. “Thanks for making my dream come true, Mr. President.”
    Thanks for turning me into a big crybaby, Damon Weaver.
    Someone get that boy into college!
