That’s not very festive!
Thin-skinned lame duck President Obama scolded a child at the White House Halloween Party today.
“President Obama scolded a “young man” at the White House’s Halloween festivities on Monday for taking a selfie while he was talking.
“Well, it is great to see all of you guys. Your costumes are outstanding,” Obama said to the crowd of children, before spotting the picture-taker. “Young man, no selfies in the middle of me talking.”
Here he is mid-scold:
Obama also told a child dressed up as Darth Vader to “back up.”
From the video:
“Well, it is great to see all of you guys. Your costumes are outstanding. Young man, no selfies in the middle of me talking. And Darth Vader, back up a little bit. I’m getting spooked.”
Is he trying to be Mr. Scary President for Halloween?
Or is his waning power and little influence getting to him?
Update: Remember when Obama took a selfie at a funeral?

Obviously, that was more appropriate . . .
