From the President's sixth State of the Union address to YouTube interviews live from the East Wing of the White House, this week was full of big moments. Here's your White House week in review:
On Monday, the President and the First Lady, the Vice President, Cabinet secretaries, and other senior Administration officials participated in a number of community service projects both in D.C. and throughout the nation. The President, First Lady, and their daughters volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club in D.C.
On Tuesday, the President delivered his sixth State of the Union address to Congress and the nation. He explained why the country needs to commit to middle-class economics that will give every family a fair shot -- by instituting two free years of community college, creating paid sick leave programs, taking on climate change, and closing unfair tax loopholes. If you missed the President's speech, you can catch the enhanced version here.
It all started on February 22, 1837. President Jackson had a 1,400-pound block of cheese hauled into the main foyer of the White House for an open house with thousands of citizens and his staff, where they discussed the issues of the day while carving off slabs of cheddar. So on Wednesday, White House officials spent their day on social media to directly answer questions from the American people using the hashtag #AskTheWH for the second-annual Big Block of Cheese Day.
On Thursday, President Obama stepped onto the sets of YouTube stars GloZell Green, Bethany Mota, and Hank Green. Live from the East Wing of the White House, the stars each asked the President questions with the help of their viewers. From college affordability to the environment, the President was asked all of the tough questions. Check out the full YouTube interview and reaction here.
