Barack Obama Pranked by His Staff Dec. 2016

Obama Staffers Play a Hilarious Christmas Prank on Him Before He Leaves Office

Barack Obama is currently gearing up for his last Christmas as President of the United States, and while he's undoubtedly got a lot on his mind, his staffers are making sure he has a little fun. In an epic and hilarious prank that's spanned a few weeks now, a few of Barack's employees decided to rearrange some of the White House's Christmas decorations.

Pete Souza, the White House's Chief Official Photographer, posted two photos of the prank on Instagram on Dec. 17. "For the past three weeks, there have been four snowmen on display in the Rose Garden. We've been joking that we should move the snowmen a few feet closer to the Oval Office every day to see if anyone noticed," he wrote alongside a snap of a seemingly clueless Barack in his office as a snowman looked in. "Then we realised the snowmen were too heavy to easily lift. But finally this morning before the President came to the office, some helpful staff — I won't say who — moved all the snowmen so each one was peeking through a different window into the Oval. This photo was taken this afternoon as the President signed end-of-the-year bills." He then shared an "after" photo of the president having fun with another snowman, writing, "Yes he enjoyed the prank." Never change, guys.
