                All is great!.. and I've got 10% charge left on my phone which I'm using for "probably nothing" .. (Thanks "auto-type" you help me a lot!)

                But, Destin, I think you are flaming too much, by calling Mr. President Obama a "Most Powerful Man In the World", at least 3 times in 8 min video - LOOOAAAds would disagree!.. Why to emphasis that so much? Moreover, do we really need a "Most Powerful Man In the World"?..

                      You're so lucky you got to meet Obama let alone sit and have an interview with him. Just to shake his hand and thank him is on my bucket list.

                        I'm an american citizen but I generally don't watch a lot of regular american news, because of propaganda. I watch some of pbs, and bbc. I feel I get a better idea of what's really happening, when I see it from the prospective of people not living in the USA. I have a lot of respect for the Obamas and wish I could meet him and Michelle to tell them both that in person. I'd also like thank him for the many college grants he added to the total of funds available fulfilling his campaign promise to help give more people a chance to go to college. I am 1 of the people he helped. I'm glad the rule of only 2 terms served is there for any president, but I do wish he could've had a 3rd, especially given who won. I'm an independent. Even if I was a republican I still wouldn't have voted for Trump. He's to selfish, greedy, heartless, racist, cruel, and is a very loud, big mouthed, loose cannon. Not someone I'd trust with national security and my life. I think given the chance he'd sell all state secrets to the highest bidder if he could. All things I knew about him from watching him on tv and reading about him over the years long before he chose to run for president on a whim and a dare with his friend. Which tells me he doesn't take it seriously enough to deserve the respected position. It is just a means to him to get more money and publicity. Nothing more. He doesn't care about the well being of American people at all which is the basic point of his job. To lead and care for us. He does neither.

                                      Wow nice video! Most people do stick to one side. I indeed look for the facts and I enjoy hearing opposing views so I can be more informed. Being civil is hard for most people.

                                                    Flip this now... Would a Democrat or left leaning person be as cordial to President Trump? Nope! They’d make an excuse on why he makes them act the way they do or why he deserves to be treated the way they treat him or anyone they don’t agree with! That’s not what America is about! It’s what leftist of the 60’s indoctrinated the boomers with & they instilled to the youth 2 Generations since!

There is no president or any actual person that's been in office after that guy that caused the Watergate issue I can't remember his name. Either way I'm in Canada we have a prime minister but not of the world. The fact the kind of wonder if we're still Canada or even a country but are the way in the video is amazing

                                                                                    Ill be waiting for that interview.

                                                                                      Is it influence?
                                                                                      Is it the ability to kill anybody at any time for any reason?
                                                                                      Is it the one with the most money?

                                                                                      Is it the ability to change others' opinions?

Maybe you should have said that you "filmed" something:). Anyway, great video, as always buddy. Love your work, and appreciate all the time you invest in doing all that is required to keep bringing us great work all the time. I know it must be very taxing and stressful at times, but you just keep cranking them out! You obviously have a very supportive wife and your kids I'm sure have fun with you making a lot of the videos. I'm sure that when you're up late at night editing and figuring things out, it can be quite daunting, and you've probably questioned your sanity on several occasions. Hang in there, and keep up the great work man!
