WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTVR) – The White House posted a video on YouTube that showed President Barack Obama chatting with D.C. residents and tourists during a “surprise walk” to the Department of the Interior.

The video was posted May 22.

“On the way, he got a chance to meet with all sorts of folks, who weren’t expecting to meet the President of the United States of America,” the YouTube description said.

Obviously many of the people who saw the President were surprised by the chance encounter. Several people, in the video, asked President Obama if he “was real.”

“Someone’s going to think you’re like wax,” one woman said as she posed with President Obama for a picture.

However the official transcript on the YouTube transcribed the statement as:

think you’re like blacks.”
