The White House is doing a little damage control after being accused of hiring child actors for Kamala Harris Youtube video for Word Space Week!

According to Yahoo News, The White House finds itself responding to false reports coming from conservative media, accusing The White House of hiring child actors for the original Youtube video featuring the Vice President. 

In a clarification, The White House said that they did not choose children for the special titled, Get Curious with Vice President Harris. Backing up The White House, Youtube provided a statement to CNN stating, “The casting process for this show was no different from typical unscripted kids shows across other networks and streaming platforms.” 

“YouTube selected the kids that were featured,” the statement read. “We reached out via not-for-profit organizations, social media, and traditional casting websites, looking for kids who were interested in contributing positively to their communities.”

The spokesperson for the trendy video site, is proud of the production and “we look forward to the attention shifting back to encouraging families to get excited about space exploration.”

The Youtube video that is nine-and-a-half minutes features NASA astronauts speaking to kids about space exploration for World Space Week. The event lasting from Monday, Oct. 4, to Sunday, Oct. 10, involves kids doing experiments and learning about history with space exploration. Interviewed by his hometown news outlet in Monterey, Ca, one of the kids featured in the clip, Trevor Bernardino, 13, told KSBW they asked him to do a monologue about something he is passionate about and ask three questions to a world leader.

“Then after that, like, a week later, my agent called me, and was like, ‘Hey, Trevor, you booked it,” Bernardino said. 

The kids met with the head of the space council, Kamala Harris. Within the video, the vice president sits with the youngsters offering a word of encouragement by saying, “Never let anybody tell you who you should be. You tell them who you are.” Heading to one of the oldest scientific agencies in America, Harris and the children go to the Naval Observatory. 

The Naval Observatory’s primary mission is to produce positioning, navigation, and timing reports and responses for the United States Navy and the U.S. Department of Defense (Yahoo News). Here is another interesting fact: The building on the campus of Naval Observatory is the official residence of the vice president! 

So, what is the big problem or issue with this again? Because we do not see any.
