US President Joe Biden met and took a selfie with actor Ke Huy Quan during the screening of the TV series American Born Chinese at the White House.
A video shared by Biden showed a jubilant Ke Huy Quan posing for the “selfie of all selfies” with the President.
In the clip, Quan, who won the 2023 Oscar for Best Actor In Supporting Role, is seen excitedly meeting Biden who jokingly asks, “Who the hell is this guy?”
Ke Huy Quan’s wife, Echo, also joined them.
The three then pose for a photo together after which Ke Huy Quan tells Biden, “Ok, I have got to ask for one thing. You may not know this but I love getting selfies.”
“This would be the selfie of all selfies!” the Oscar winner adds before the President takes a selfie with him.
“Little did Ke know he was dealing with a selfie expert,” the caption read.
