What did YouTube Ask Obama?

Trigger Warning:
It just might.

Previous Post: Obama's Wet Dream

Last year YouTube hosted an event called "YouTube Asks Obama" in which three of YouTube's most prominent content creators were chosen to interview Barack Obama live at the White House.  YouTube hosted another "YouTube Asks Obama" event this year, and invited three more YouTubers to the White House again.  Part of the live event was the #YouTubeAsksObama hashtag in which Twitter users could tweet the trio their own questions to ask Obama.

Most of the questions on #YouTubeAsksObama were pretty standard fare from lefties whose knowledge of government stops at "Obama is my Preezy of the United Steezy!"  Unfortunately for liberals everywhere, however, a bunch of conservatives managed to sneak into the hashtag.  Just as with the ill-fated #AskPOTUS hashtag of a few days ago, these conservatives managed to ask quite a few uncomfortable questions.

Here's a list of some of the best ones that, sadly, probably were not presented to the Preezy of the United Steezy.
Oh come on, what's a little Geneva Convention violation between friends, amirite?
I'm sure Hillary Clinton isn't anxious to hear the answer to this question any time soon.
I'll admit, I have no idea what the point of this is.
Come on, Twitter, inquiring minds want to know!
Oh come on, everyone KNOWS there's absolutely no scandal there at all.  None whatsoever.  Shut up and quit asking about it!
There's nothing Islamic about the Islamic State!  Islam has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism!
Ouch!
Middle school social studies is not strong with this one.
Woah, dude, spoiler alert!
Lie is such a strong word.  I'm sure Obama would prefer something like "shades of truth."  Or "fib."

#YouTubeAsksObama didn't achieve the trend-setting status of #AskPOTUS, probably because the event didn't last long.  I'm also fairly positive that Barack Obama was asked absolutely none of these questions.  Still, it was fun while it lasted.
