Obama to Kids: I Sometimes Run Into Walls

President Obama revealed some of his most embarrassing moments to a special group of questioners: children.

“Running into the wall is par for the course for me,” Obama said during the taping of a Nickelodeon special, Kids Pick the President: The Candidates. “I’m running into doors and desks all the time.”

Nickelodeon reports that the children also asked Obama about gun control, jobs, illegal immigration, same-sex marriage, outsourcing, bullying and obesity — and lighter questions about his most embarrassing moment and if he has ever had his heart broken.

To the latter query, Obama said: “That happened to me — I think the main thing you learn is that life goes on.”

The Nickelodeon special premieres Monday, Oct. 15, at 8 p.m. ET.
