This 11-Year-Old Probably Has Gotten More Access Than You

Unless you’re the AP’s Jennifer Loven, 11-year-old Damon Weaver has probably gotten more questions in to President Obama than you have.

Weaver interviewed the President late last week at the White House, focusing, fittingly, on education. The young reporter from Florida even did a press avail on the South Lawn afterwards, appearing on the morning shows and cablers.

Weaver has quite the resume tape. He’s already interviewed politicos like Vice President (then presidential candidate) Joe Biden, Colin Powell and Caroline Kennedy, Hollywood stars like Samuel Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Tucker and has reversed the mic on some of our own, including David Gregory, Larry King, Megyn Kelly, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

Looking for a fall intern? Little Weaver’s probably over-qualified.
