President Barack Obama took an impromptu stroll Wednesday along the National Mall, and some bystanders freaked out at the prospect of meeting their commander in chief.
“It’s good to be out,” Obama quipped to reporters. “The bear is loose.”
He greeted people along the way with handshakes, hugs and White House-branded M&M’s. One enthusiastic woman asked the President to snap a photo with her family.
“This is like the best day of my life,” she said as the picture was taken. “Someone’s gonna think you’re, like, wax.”
