First he speaks before Congress, now he’s doing a coffee klatch with President Obama. We tell you, that Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) is going places! (Like the White House.)

The Vampire Diaries star tweeted this photo of himself and Mr. Obama today, writing, “Just spent my morning w/this man talkn [sic] green energy, a better America & being a young American-wow .” Um, wow. Did Ian actually drop a Young Americans reference on the President? Did Barack 'ship Hamilton and Jake, too?

OK, sorry to ruin this auspicious moment with our fandom. Congratulations, Ian!
