President Barack Obama surprised White House tourists this week as he was in an interview with comedian Steve Harvey.

The two decided to end the interview and surprise guests.

“Let’s go spread some Christmas cheer,” President Obama said in the interview, which was uploaded online.

“You’ve got ears just like me,” Obama told a young tourist. “That gives you some special power.”

Obama also gave a hug to a woman who was having her birthday.

“You get a birthday hug,” he said.

The interview with Obama will air this Friday on Steve Harvey’s show.
