Barack Obama is on his Santa duties all in good favor to spread some holiday cheers!
The former president stopped by the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.’s earlier this week.
“My reindeer they were stuck in some snow. But, I just wanted to make sure that I made the trip and I had a chance to see all of you guys.”
Thank you @BarackObama for making our patients’ day so much brighter. Your surprise warmed our hallways and put smiles on everyone’s faces! Our patients loved your company…and your gifts! https://t.co/bswxSrA4sQ #HolidaysAtChildrens #ObamaAndKids pic.twitter.com/qii53UbSRS

While handing out presents, he also sat with the patients and families. A statement from his office said:
“During today’s visit, President Obama greeted individual patients in their rooms and stopped by several playrooms, bringing Christmas gifts that he and his staff had collected. He had the chance to spend some time with parents and siblings of kids who are spending the holidays in the hospital, and he also recorded a short message for the hospital’s internal TV system, wishing all the patients he couldn’t visit today a wonderful holiday season.”
