Interviews with President Joe Biden are very rare and difficult to procure. According to a report from the White House Transition Project, Biden only gave 28 interviews in his first year in office – compared to 95 by Donald Trump, 162 by Barack Obama, and 50 by George W. Bush. In 2022, Biden went 220 days without an interview with an American TV journalist until he sat down with "60 Minutes" host Scott Pelley in mid-September. However, Biden has reportedly found the time to fit in interviews with six young people at the Oval Office.
NowThis – a progressive video-centric news site for young people – was allegedly granted access to Biden for interviews regarding Democrat-friendly topics such as gun legislation, student loan relief, abortion access, criminal justice reform, climate change, and trans rights.
NowThis said of the event, "President Joe Biden sat down with six young people focused on finding solutions to some of the most critical issues facing their generation" during the "NowThis Presidential Forum."
Transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney will be interviewing President Biden about trans rights. Mulvaney is a 25-year-old TikTok content creator who hosts a social media series titled "Days of Girlhood" about transitioning.
In a TikTok video posted on March 12, the transgender activist claimed to have become a "girl." In the video, Mulvaney mocked negative female stereotypes, such as crying throughout the day and buying unaffordable dresses.
The "dylanmulvaney" TikTok account has more than 8.3 million followers and over 267 million likes.
One of Mulvaney's viewers is apparently President Joe Biden – who turns 80 years old in less than a month.
Mulvaney announced on Thursday that Mulvaney had interviewed President Biden for NowThis. The trans activist noted that President Biden had watched the "Days of Girlhood" series about Mulvaney's transgender transition.
"It's day 222 of being a girl. I'm in Washington D.C., and I’m going to the White House to speak to the President of the United States," Mulvaney said on the video on Chinese social media platform TikTok.
"You know that phrase, ‘I think I may have girlbossed too close to the sun?’ Well that’s how I feel today," Mulvaney said while wearing a "Don't mess with trans kids" shirt and filming in a bathroom. "Because I get to sit down with Joe Biden and NowThis News, and I get to ask him a few questions surrounding trans issues in the United States and talk to him about my transness, and I really just want to represent my community the best that I can.”
"And you know what, as silly as I am on here, I am ready to step up and show that trans people, we’re not going anywhere, and that trans kids, they deserve a fighting chance to be their true selves," Mulvaney continued.
To meet President Biden, the transgender activist wore an outfit featuring the colors of the trans flag, including white high heels and a pink scarf.
Video shows Mulvaney entering the White House, seeing a portrait of Michelle Obama, and saying, "Our queen, love you, I love you."
President Biden allegedly gave the trans activist a cookie in the Oval Office.
Mulvaney frantically gushed about petting Biden's dog.
Mulvaney said of the meeting, "I left with a lot of hope and optimism, not only for just trans people, but many different topics."
"And the fact that our president has watched 'Days of Girlhood' – it's kind of epic," the trans activist said of Biden watching the TikTok series about transitioning.
"And I'm not gonna lie I have been having a rough go of it lately. A lot of darkness," Mulvaney added. "And today was what I needed to keep going."
Mulvaney called on everyone to vote in the midterms because they will "be one of the most important elections of our lifetimes."
Mulvaney said, "We're going to clean up some messes that have needed cleaning for hundreds of years."
The NowThis interviews with Biden are said to be released on Sunday night.

Last week, Mulvaney was embroiled in a controversy involving cosmetics behemoth Ulta Beauty. Mulvaney appeared in a Ulta-sponsored video along with gender-fluid hairstylist David Lopez. The two biological men discussed girlhood and motherhood.
Mulvaney declared, "I know I can find love, I know I can still be a performer, I know I can have a family. I want to be a mom one day — and I absolutely can!"
The controversial video sparked outrage, and many women vowed to boycott Ulta Beauty.
This isn't the first time Biden's White House has enlisted social media influencers to appeal to young voters.
Earlier this month, the Biden administration announced it would utilize social media influencers to "combat scams and misinformation" about the new federal student loan debt relief program.
In March, the White House welcomed popular TikTok content creators to deliver a briefing on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
In December 2021, Biden appeared in a TikTok video with the Jonas Brothers to promote COVID-19 vaccines.
In August 2021, "Queer as Folk" actor Benito Skinner, aka "Benny Drama," appeared in a video pretending to be the intern of former White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
