(CNN) – President Obama stunned tourists and others outside of the White House as he decided to take a stroll to the nearby Interior Department, accompanied by his sizable security detail.
The White House posted video of the rare outdoor trek, which took place Wednesday.
Obama shook hands, hugged, took photos and passed out White House M&M's to the surprised passers-by.
One woman, who introduced herself as Karen, asked for a picture and said it was "the best day of her life."
"Oh my gosh. Someone's going to think you're like wax," she added, as the photo was being taken.
Next on Foxs news: "Obama goes for a walk" – Clearly starting an evil Satanic program of socialist walking.
Queue up the imbeciles... Get back to work, too many vacations, Benghazi, etc., etc., etc...
one can only hope he gets lost and never finds his way back.
Next up: "Why isn't he doing his job!?!?!?!?! OMG [insert dogwhistle about lazy, feckless n-bomb stereotypes]!!!!!"
Real cool to see him mixing with people.
Just a walk in the park, but President Obama is more in touch with the average American than any president since JFK.
A good man doing a great job, and America is thriving as a result.
wow!!! what a man of the people!!! briliant move. when your administration is sinking from all of its incompetence and scandals, take a walk among the common folk to show you can "feel their pain" and that your just a common guy. hahahahahahahhah!!!! this is so pathetic.
I would have loved to meet him just walking President's should do so more often.
He saw Prince Charles and Camilla on TV doing something like this in Canada and wanted to do the same thing...
Headline News for CNN; ABC; NBC; MSNBC; Obama takes a walk! Lets see how long the media harps about this.
That was heart warming! Nice to see the President out for a stroll.
Queus in the idiots. Obama is a people president. See how he is shaking hands? Koch Brothers, war on women.
People would complain if he hitched up the presidential motorcade to go across the street - so I think this is great!
@sly-Oh yes, Jesus has returned and everything is so awesome now.
Walking? Why isn't he working? Our tax dollars paying for security for a WALK? Can't he find his way across the street without an entourage? Better walking than golfing? His dog is probably pooping on the lawn. This President spends more time walking than any other President in history. It's a diversion from something else. Benghaaaaaaaaaaaazeeeeeeeeee.
I'm sure I missed something....
Later tonight Obama will say that he learned of his walk on the news...
OMG, going for a walk while VA is killing our wounded warriors, Benghazi, IRS, NSA, BLM, ......... /sing. Looks like a nice day in DC.
A little late to pretend to be human, the country is already cratered.
Definitely cheaper than flying.
One woman, who introduced herself as Karen, asked for a picture and said it was "the best day of her life." – must be an 'exciting' sheltered life you live, Karen...
When he was within sight of me, I made sure our paths did not cross.
cool. nice to see president walk and meet people like this. this make me realize how small things are so important in life.
What??? Obama is walking while Benghazi, IRS, VA, Boko Haram, etc. is going on? How dare he take a stroll on our dime.
– A typical outraged Republican
doesn't he ever work?
Sniffit...He is doing his job.....its been reduced to this.
