Worlds collided last week during the White House Correspondents' Dinner when President Barack Obama met Kendall Jenner. Unlike millions of fans, the leader of the free world isn't keeping up with the Kardashians--he had no idea what Kendall actually does. 

"Kendall Jenner is also here. We had a chance to meet her backstage and she seems like a very nice young woman," Obama said during his speech, per People. "I'm not exactly sure what she does but I am told that my Twitter mentions are about to go through the roof."

The model and reality star was much more excited. "That was like my first time, ever [being starstuck]," she tells People. So what did the POTUS say to Kendall? "He was like, 'Say hi to Kim and Kanye,'" she remembers. "I was like 'Okay.'" Oof. 

Mama Kris Jenner shared the moment on--where else--on social media.
