President Barack Obama put a smile on one girl’s face over the weekend after she was devastated to find out he wouldn’t serve a third term.
Caprina Harris’ adorable granddaughter went viral last week when she became inconsolable after discovering her favorite president was leaving office. Harris suggested her granddaughter write a letter to Obama to share her grief. She also told the toddler they would have to vote for a new one, a thought the little girl wasn’t interested in.
Soon after post the adorable video, the family got a special surprise from Obama himself. Among thousands of commentators on her Facebook video, stood the president’s. Obama sent nothing but love to Harris’ granddaughter. The president, who also shares a birthday with Harris’ granddaughter, promised the two would one day celebrate their birthdays together.
via NBC News:
“Caprina, tell her to dry her tears because I’m not going anywhere. Once I leave the White House, I’ll still be a citizen just like her. And when she grows up, she can get involved right alongside me. In the meantime, I’ll keep an eye out for her letter, and we’ll always get to celebrate our birthdays together!”
Looks like people of all ages are going to miss President Obama in the white house.
