President Obama got the surprise of the day when he came face-to-face with a miniature version of himself at the White House’s trick-or-treat event. The commander-in-chief met a kid who dressed like him for the party.
“Is this supposed to be me,” President Obama questioned. The youngster affirmed that his costume was inspired by the commander-in-chief right before Obama broke the news of the impersonation being a bit flawed. “I’m not that gray yet,” the president joked.

President and First Lady Obama’s final trick-or-treat event was one to remember as kids from across the nation dressed as their favorite celebrities and television characters. One youngster served as inspiration for a song as President Obama saw his Prince costume and rendered a few lyrics from the late singer’s hit ‘Purple Rain’ single. Another attendee rocked a Lame Duck outfit that garnered the Obamas’ attention.
The commander-in-chief and his wife will certainly leave a legacy of outreach as they prepare to exit the oval office. President Obama launched several initiatives during his two terms , including an effort that encourages proactive fathering in America.
Obama most recently met with his Kid Science Advisors board, which is made up of eleven children who are up-and-coming stars in the field. “Because we are the future innovators in America, we know that we can change the world for the better,” one of the advisors wrote in an open letter. “It’s really incredible to know that President Obama not only took my suggestion seriously but that he is considering all of our suggestions, even though we are kids. It shows he believes that, no matter how old we are, we can solve the tough problems we’ll face in the future.”
President and First Lady Obama are the proud parents of two daughters. The first family will leave the White House on January 20, 2017.
