It's no "U.S. Army training special cat unit," but the White House on Monday rolled out an April Fools' joke video starring "Kid President"—9-year-old viral video maker Robby Novak.

"It looks like you were expecting somebody else," Novak, dressed in a dark suit and wearing a red power tie, says from the podium in the White House briefing room. “April Fools on all y’all! I’m Kid President and I hope everyone has an awesome day. It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance. I made it to the White House! I’m here! Peace.” (Peace? Or budding Richard Nixon imitator?)
