President Barack Obama’s Easter celebration on Monday was spoiled by a swarm of bees.
“They sting. They’re scary!” the children shrieked. “Ahhhhhhhhhh!”
Obama, smiling, tried to console them.
“Oh no, it’s the bees!” he joked. “It’s ok guys, bees are good. They won’t harm nothing. They won’t sting you.”
The children’s screams continued. Obama suggested the book he was reading to them should inspire courage.
“Hold on! Hold on! You guys are Wild Things, you’re not supposed to be scared of bees when you’re a Wild Thing!” he told them.
