Here at the White House, President Obama is always looking for new ways to engage with the public -- respond to a few letters, meet a few new faces, or read a few mean tweets.
Last night, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel graciously offered the President that unique opportunity. Check it out:
It was a wide-ranging interview, in which President Obama shared his thoughts on race relations in America, his plans to help make college more affordable, and U.S. intelligence on extraterrestrials.
Take a look at a few of the more candid moments from the interview:
"We shouldn't be complacent about the very real existence of problems out there, but we shouldn't despair and think nothing's changed. If people of good will -- which is the overwhelming majority of Americans -- are working together, these are problems we can solve."
On the Student Aid Bill of Rights:
"Everybody understands that the economy is now based on your skills, your knowledge. ... Young people understand that, the problem is [college is] also becoming more and more expensive."
On Area 51:
"I can't reveal anything."
