President Joe Biden and Ke Huy Quan had a hilarious encounter during a meeting at the White House that the POTUS shared on social media. In a tweet shared today, the president shared a video excerpt of their meeting, with the caption “Little did Ke know he was dealing with a selfie expert.”
In the video, Quan introduces himself and his wife, Echo, to Biden. After a brief exchange, Quan expresses his love for selfies and asks Biden if he is ready for “the selfie of all selfies.” The clip then cuts to the two of them posing for the photo.

The video was recorded on Monday during the celebration of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. It was attended by around 200 guests, including Quan, who stars in the upcoming television series “American Born Chinese.” The series is based on a graphic novel of the same name and tells the story of an immigrant family with an American son who becomes involved in a battle between Chinese gods.
After gaining fame from his roles in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “The Goonies,” Quan took a break from acting due to the lack of opportunities for Asian actors. Recently, he made history by winning an Oscar for his supporting role in “Everything Everywhere All At Once.”
