The Obama administration is keeping their heads down amid swirling reports of election hacking and grave uncertainty about the preparedness of President-elect Trump's incoming team of executives. Anything to take their minds off the approaching abyss and swift destruction of Barack's legacy, right?

In this case, that meant strategically moving several snowman decorations around the White House so that they appeared to be closing in on the outgoing commander-in-chief. Photographer Pete Souza explained that this shot had been a group effort, but slyly declined to say exactly who had helped out.


Naturally, people were quick to warn the president of his stalker.

But by the time Obama realized what was happening, it was too late.

Another snowman from yesterday. Yes he enjoyed the prank. See previous post for the backstory.

Oh well—his term was pretty much up anyway. We'll miss you, Mr. President.
