Kid President Gives Us The Pep Talk We Need After The Shutdown Mess

In the wake of government dysfunction in Washington, leave it to Kid President to offer us some sage advice in video form -- and all for a good cause, of course.

"The world can be better, and you'll be the cause," the mini POTUS tells us in an auto-tune remix that raises awareness for Socktober, an October charitable initiative that collects items and funds for homeless people.

Kid Prez, who teamed up with The Gregory Brothers, known for their catchy media mixes, offers us this melodic wisdom:

"I think we all need pep talk. I don't know everything; I'm just a kid. But I do know this... the world's so big and we're all so small. Sometimes it feels like we can't do anything at all. But the world can be better, in spite of its flaws. The world can be better, and you'll be the cause."

He may have interviewed Beyonce and Obama, but we really think this might be his crowning moment. Thanks, Kid Prez -- we needed that.
