President Obama Consoling a Crying Child: A Story Told in Three Photos

By

A small child started crying after apparently losing at the White House's annual Easter Egg Roll today. President Obama was there to console him.

"There, there, it's okay," Obama probably said. "I lost a race to Bobby Rush once, but after that I never lost again, not even to Hillary."
