Add another task to President Obama’s job description: matchmaker-in-chief.
There’s word Monday that the president kept a big promise to Payton Wall, a 14 year-old Justin Bieber mega fan whose father was a victim of the 9/11 attacks.
Obama met Wall during his visit to Ground Zero in May and soon learned she was a big fan of the teen idol.
“I know Justin. Maybe I could set something up,” Obama told Wall then.
Turns out he could. Wall met Bieber last week while he was in New York and posed for pictures next to the pop star and a cardboard cutout of the president.
"It was so cool. I couldn't even believe it," Wall told the New York Post, adding Bieber made her more nervous than the president.
