Barack Obama crashes high school lesson – and leaves students absolutely speechless

High School students were left stunned after former US President Barack Obama gatecrashed their first day back at school.

Barack Obama dropped in to lessons at McKinley Tech in Washington as they were still settling in to their new classes.

The popular leader was filmed taking a carefree stroll through the corridors, and left those inside speechless before asking them: “You guys don’t mind me crashing, right?”

The impromptu visit on Friday was part of what his spokesman called the “ongoing conversation with young people” as Obama tries to engage more young Americans in politics .

He told them: “One of the things I did throughout my presidency was I’d meet with groups of young people everywhere I went, whether it was here in the United States or when I was travelling overseas.

“Just to kind of hear from them, find out what they’re interested in, because I do believe that most of the problems we have are going to be solved by you.”
