WATCH: Obama Put On a Santa Hat And Delivered Presents To Children In Washington DC
Former President Barack Obama surprised a group of kids when he showed up at a Boys and Girls Club in Washington, D.C. to deliver presents to the excited children, and he did it all while wearing a Santa hat.
The children greeted the former president with handshakes and cheers as he walked in with a big sack of toys slung over his shoulder.
“There’s no better time than the holiday season to reach out and give back to our communities,” Obama wrote on Twitter with a photo of the visit. “Great to hear from young people at the Boys & Girls Club in DC today.”
