As President Obama finishes his final year in office, he's keeping busy between the White House Science Fair, hosting television shows, and sitting down for exclusive interviews, like the March/April Popular Science cover story.

Today, President Obama will participate in his first-ever Facebook Live interview, to discuss his nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court, which Republicans are currently blocking. He'll speak with Buzzfeed's legal editor Chris Geidner. Senate Republicans refuse to hold a confirmation hearing for Garland, claiming whoever fills the seat vacated by Judge Antonin Scalia's death should be chosen by the next president. It's not yet been reported if Buzzfeed will stream a live or pre-recorded interview.

Watch President Obama's interview at 2:50 PM EST on Facebook and YouTube.
