Obama speaks to the deaf

Watch the President of the United States of America talk to a deaf man in sign language.

26-year-old Stephon met Barack Obama last week, and was amazed when the President replied to him in his own form of communication: American Sign Language.

In this touching video, the Prince's George Community College student says to Obama, 'I'm so proud of you.' Without prompting, Obama immediately replies, 'thank you'.

'I was like wow!,' said Stephon through sign language in a video he later posted on Youtube. 'He understood me after I said I was proud of him.

'It was so amazing…I was just speechless.'
