Shut out! President Obama locked out of the White House
It can even happen to the world's most powerful man.
President Barack Obama had a humbling experience on Wednesday when he somehow found himself locked out of the White House.
He had to yank at a set of doors, then walked past another before finally gaining access to the Oval Office.
Worse than that, the whole episode was caught on camera.
The hilarious incident happened after Mr Obama returned from a five-day trip to Latin America. He had cut short by a couple to return home to face mounting criticism over his policy on Libya.
The video shows the president strolling up to French doors at the White House and trying the handle on a locked door.
Unfazed, he appeared to be whistling as he made his way down to another set of doors that were open.
Or was he blowing hard in anger.
According to newsnet5.com, some members of the White House staff were not told that the President was coming back to work before his arrival.
The question is, will someone pay for this? Or even more outrageous, was there any chance the President, who recently gave up smoking, relapsed and went out for a quiet puff without telling anyone?
