The White House released as one of its “Photos of the Day” this week a shot of President Obama waiting with an umbrella until the rain stops before making a 20-second walk from one building to another on the White House grounds.
“President Barack Obama waits for a heavy rain to pass before crossing West Executive Avenue from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building to the West Wing of the White House,” states the caption to the photo, which is below.
Notice a staffer with an umbrella is willing to brave the rain while the boss clings to the safety of an archway.
I’ve walked this path many times. It’s very short, no more than about 30 yards. There’s little danger of getting very wet, particularly with an umbrella in hand.
No word on what kind of suit Obama was wearing.
A big H/T to one of our readers, Playrighter, for sending this in and thinking up the title.
