Web Catch: Watch sixth grader interrupt Obama – in the name of lunchtime

“I think you’ve sort of covered everything about that question,” said Osman Yahya, the sixth grader making headlines for his interview with President Obama on Thursday.

The President of the United States was explaining his love of reading when the Maryland middle schooler decided it was time to wrap things up. His quick moderation of the Obama's answer has since stolen the show on social media.

“I didn’t mean to cut him off. I was just nudging him to get on,” Yahya tells POLITICO.

The pint-sized moderator's reasoning was noble, however, as lunchtime was quickly approaching. "He's a really nice guy," Yahya added. "Most students were hungry."

Let this be a lesson for us all: never, ever attempt to come between a middle school class and their lunchtime. They'll win.
