President Obama on Monday tried to find common ground with young voters while hitting the campaign trail for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — by giving a shoutout to some favorite childhood TV shows.

“Some of you were — let’s admit it — while I was out there campaigning, you were watching the Disney Channel.”
 
Obama gave them a pass, he said, because he used to watch the same shows with his daughters. 
 
“I loved iCarly, I got you,” Obama said, referring to the Nickelodeon teen sitcom. 
 
“I know, because I was sitting there, I had a soft spot for SpongeBob,” he continued. “SpongeBob was my favorite.”
