Glozell, Hank Green Discuss Obama Interview | msnbc
Ronan: Hank, what was the most surprising moment for you?

Hank: Um, honestly Ronan I don't remember a lot of the interview because...

GloZell: I don't either.

H: It's weird. It's, I'm gonna have to go, like, watch it again. Um, but I did, like, I felt like the President took time to legitimately answer the questions that I asked him. A lot of people feel like the job of a politician is to just dance around and dodge questions. Um, I didn't fell like that happened. I felt like the concerns that I had, like, you know, obviously maybe I disagree with him on some of his answers but like...

G: What!

H: What? You know.

G: Are you gonna tell the people you disagree with the President when you just interviewed him?

R: You're allowed to, as a journalist, to disagree with the President.

H: Well, I'm not gonna, nobody's gonna agree with the President on everything.

G: He's not gonna invite you back to his house.

R: But see, you're in the house now. You've got it made, you don't need another invitation. And you were both incredibly honest an authentic.

G: Well that is worse than what I did. What he just did is worse than what I just did.

R: See, this is what we need, what's happening right here.
