Pres. Obama Meets With YouTube Creators But Not Israeli Prime Minister

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be visiting Washington next month, and while he might be addressing a Joint Session of Congress at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, one thing will not be on his schedule…a meeting with the President of the United States.

The White House says it’s because the meeting would be in too close proximity to the Israeli elections. Some folks President Obama did not have a problem meeting with on Thursday include a group of YouTube stars, who among other things, have taken baths in milk and cereal bathtubs, a 19-year-old fashion adviser, and Hank Green, who has posted a video on “how to apologize like a fartbag.”
