Kids have thrown tantrums in front of Barack Obama and face planted on the Oval Office couch, giving way to some truly hilarious and memorable photos with the U.S. President. On Saturday, the hashtag #ObamaAndKids began trending, revealing even more epic photos of Obama with children.

The trend was inspired after White House photographer Pete Souza shared a touching image on social media. In the picture, Obama is seen greeting a three-year-old boy, Clark Reynolds, at a Black History month event.


The image particularly struck a chord with activist and entrepreneur Michael Skolnik, who tweeted about it, saying, “We'll never truly be able to measure the impact that President Barack Obama has had on our children.”

Skolnik then kicked off the hashtag #ObamaAndKids, calling Twitter users to share their favourite photos of Obama with children. As expected, the results came pouring in, causing the hashtag to trend on Twitter.

Here, we’ve rounded up our favourite photos. From inspiring to hilarious, here are all the times Obama won the internet with kids.
