We assume that if you clicked on a story about Barack Obama playing Santa Claus, you are prepared to cry. And so we cannot say we didn’t warn you.
The president visited the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington on Thursday to deliver gifts to a few middle schoolers. He wore a leather jacket and a Santa hat, and whatever your opinion on his fashion dad style, you can’t deny that he looked pretty cool. And friendly… and smart… and… oh god.
Imagine Trump meeting with children and not discussing their weight. You can’t!
If your eyes weren’t flooded enough, here’s a bonus clip of the kids’ reaction when Obama walked in. It was posted on Thursday evening by communications director Katie Hill, then immediately forwarded by Chloe Bryan to all of her friends and family.
OK. Dry your eyes. You made it out of here alive. Just don’t look at this unspeakably cute photo from the 2016 White House Christmas tree lighting.
Oh, god. Sorry.
