This week, the White House opened its doors after a seven-month hiatus and restarted their tours for the public.
Which is exciting enough. But when visitors walked through the door and were greeted by the home’s residents, including the First Family’s dogs Sunny and Bo, it was more than they expected.
“We are so glad you are here,” Mrs. Obama told one family. “We’re so glad they’re (the tours) back.”
And, in true President Obama fashion, he told a few jokes and connected with the cute youngsters on the tour.
Obama seemed to particularly relish chatting up the younger visitors. He told one nattily attired 8-year-old boy that he looked quite “raffish” with his pocket square. And he joked with a little girl, who turned 4 earlier this month, that he was sorry that he missed her party, but he was dealing with the government shutdown.
But despite the president’s ability to make everyone laugh and smile, it’s clear from this video on Michelle Obama’s Instagram who the real stars of the day were.
Bo and Sunny run this show.
