What did YouTube Ask Obama?

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?
#YouTubeAsksObama Mr. President, when will your FBI present the evidence & seek a warrant for Hillary Clinton's arrest? #ArrestHillary— Angela Morabito (@Bear2theRight) January 15, 2016
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.
#YouTubeAsksObama @POTUS WHY are our borders still OPENED when you KNOW ISIS sympathizers are trying to get into the USA to attack us???— AnonyMs (@OmgLOLw2gROFLOL) January 15, 2016
But, but Obama says the border is secure! Why would he lie?
Why did twitter suddenly kill the trending hashtag #YouTubeAsksObama Was it something I said? https://t.co/QiTlG1nG7G— Ian56 (@Ian56789) January 15, 2016
Come on, Twitter, inquiring minds want to know!
#YouTubeAsksObama How has the @DeptVetAffairs improved during your time in office? Why are #Vets worse off now than ever in the past?— Mr. Amari L Williams (@WhosSayingThis) January 15, 2016
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!

Middle school social studies is not strong with this one.
#YouTubeAsksObama You'll raise minimum wage via executive order, sell some books, leave whitehouse before thousands businesses close?— Charles Grovner ✘ (@screenwriter) January 15, 2016
Woah, dude, spoiler alert!
#YouTubeAsksObama Why did you lie about a video causing the attacks in Benghazi?— Ben B (@rockinranger81) January 15, 2016
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.
