A kid in a baby Pope costume floored President Obama on Friday at The White House Halloween celebration. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama welcomed area students and the children of military families to the White House for trick-or-treating. Hundreds of kids showed up in costumes of all types and sizes.

But when Obama saw baby Pope, he couldn't stop laughing, and then almost immediately declared that this costume won top prize.


Baby Pope costumes are a true hit this Halloween. A baby Pope even caused Pope Francis himself to laugh uncontrollably. Opportunities to meet the Pope or the President have passed, but there's still time for parents to make their toddlers into baby Popes to ensure a glorious candy stash for the adults.
