On Twitter this morning, the White House tweeted this message: "At 10:00 a.m. ET, the White House will release a special video message from the President."
In the video (below) posted on WhiteHouse.gov, a small boy dressed in a suit stood at a White House podium as 'Hail to the Chief' played.
“It looks like you were expecting somebody else, but April Fools on all of y’all,” said the boy. “I’m kid president and I hope everyone has an awesome day.”
The boy also gave President Nixon's famous "v for victory" finger gestures, made fart noises as he walked off the podium and got a stuck in a doorway.
