A clip from a soon-to-be-released VICE documentary shows President Obama being introduced to a group of inmates when he became the first sitting president to visit a federal jail.
The president greets the group with a “How y’all doing?” and proceeds to shake hands with each of them.
President Obama made history in July, becoming the first sitting president to visit a federal penitentiary.
Airing Sunday, the VICE on HBO special report Fixing the System follows the president on his tour of El Reno Federal Correctional Institution in Oklahoma.
Fixing the System analyzes the challenges faced not only by an inmate, but their families, politicians and the entire judiciary. The special will air on HBO this Sunday, Sept. 27 at 9:00p.m. ET
