A two-year-old named Claudia was visiting the White House for a Passover seder when she lost her cool.

This photo is so great, it should become Barack Obama's official presidential portrait. This is how I want to remember him when he's no longer in office.
The picture was taken during a recent Passover seder held at the White House. I'm sure all of the guests were honored to share such a special meal with the president, but two-year-old Claudia was not impressed. Any parent knows that there's no occasion so important that a toddler can't make it all about them. Claudia didn't fail to deliver, throwing an epic tantrum that ended with her face-down on the floor. Her uncle, New York Times columnist Benjamin Moser, captured the meltdown at the perfect moment, including both Barack and Michelle's priceless reactions.
Some people might remember that this isn't the first time a kid face-planted in front of the president. It happened last year with the child of a departing Secret Service agent.
I guess Obama has a way with kids. He should pick up a few tips from Michelle.
