President Barack Obama’s negotiating skills were put to the test Monday as he tried to convince screaming children that, well, “bees are good.”
As he read Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are on the South Lawn during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, kids began to scream as bees, not bunnies stole the show, according to Politico.
“Oh no, it’s a bee. That’s OK, guys. Bees are good, they won’t land on you. They won’t sting you, they’ll be OK,” Obama paused, laughing.
The youngsters, still unsettled after the president’s call for calm, continued to scream.
“Hold on! Hold on! You guys are wild things! You’re not supposed to be scared of bees when you’re a wild thing!” Obama said, before he was able to continue and finish reading the story.
The news outlet says the South Lawn has its own beehive, which White House kitchen uses for honey.
