White House Staff Prank Obama With Giant Snowman

Enjoy the White House being a happy place while it lasts

Whatever you make of the 44th Presidency of the United States of America, it's hard to deny Barack Obama's White House looks like a lot of fun.

You've had the love-in between the POTUS and VPOTUS Joe Biden, countless photos of Obama goofing around with his staff and - of course - the complete lack of depressing political scandals (let's see how that one goes with Trump).

"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," White House Photographer Pete Souza said on Instagram.

"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."

Obama, predictably, played along. File under: 'we'll miss you OB'.
