Listen to the MP3 Audio here: MP3 – Facebook Town Hall with President Obama


Barack Obama – President, USA

Well, thank you so much, Facebook, for hosting this, first of all.

My name is Barack Obama, and I’m the guy who got Mark to wear a jacket and tie. Thank you.

I’m very proud of that.

Mark Zuckerberg: Second time.

Barack Obama – President, USA

The President: I know.

I will say — and I hate to tell stories on Mark, but the first time we had dinner together and he wore this jacket and tie, I’d say halfway through dinner he’s starting to sweat a little bit. It’s really uncomfortable for him. So I helped him out of his jacket.

And in fact, if you’d like, Mark, we can take our jackets off.

Mark Zuckerberg: That’s good.

Barack Obama: Woo, that’s better, isn’t it?

Mark Zuckerberg: Yes, but you’re a lot better at this stuff than me.

Barack Obama: So, first of all, I just want to say thank you to all of you for taking the time — not only people who are here in the audience, but also folks all over the country and some around the world who are watching this town hall. The main reason we wanted to do this is, first of all, because more and more people, especially young people, are getting their information through different media. And obviously what all of you have built together is helping to revolutionize how people get information, how they process information, how they’re connecting with each other.
