The White House began their “office hours” today at 2 p.m. EST. They asked Twitter followers to submit questions about the debt debate using the hashtag #WHChat. As their last response, they took the opportunity to play the internet’s oldest practical joke on a user (and catching the rest of us in the wake).

Financial discussion isn’t always the most riveting of subjects, everybody knows that. Twitter user @wiggsd decided to use the #WHChat hashtag to tweet his frustration with the lack of entertainment coming from the correspondence briefing.

Here’s what he wrote –

This WH correspondence briefing isn’t nearly as entertaining as yesterday’s. #TCOT #WHchat 2 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

In response to that, The White House decided to give him something a little more lively. They tweeted the following, and yes, the link leads directly to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.”

@wiggsd Sorry to hear that. Fiscal policy is important, but can be dry sometimes. Here’s something more fun: http://t.co/ca31My7 #WHChat 2 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

User gaboer117 on YouTube writes on the comments for the Rickroll video –

“Thumbs up if the White house brought you here.” That comment has already received 130 likes.

These are tough, tense times. It’s nice to break it up with a little bit of humor. Apparently, someone in the White House is no stranger to that fact.
