President Obama Shoots Marshmallow Gun in White House (WATCH!)
President Obama hosted a middle school Science Fair at the White House yesterday – but Gawker reports that there were some marshmallow shenanigans involved. That’s right – our Commander in Chief got to try his hand at shooting a marshmallow gun in the White House! Watch the video of awesomeness:
Joey, an eighth grader from Phoenix, Arizona, explained to Obama how his prize-winning machine worked. “Okay, can we demonstrate? Is it not safe to shoot a marshmallow in here?” Obama asked the boy.
Joey responded, “Joey: Well, at 30 PSI, it will go 176 feet, so…”
Then Obama asked the big questions: Would it hit the wall up there? And would it stick?
Joey wasn’t sure, so Obama said “Let’s try it!” before recommending that reporters back up so they wouldn’t get hurt. See, isn’t that the kind of attitude you want from your President?
Just watch the smile that erupts on Obama’s face as Joey prepares the launcher. “This is great,” Obama said with a laugh, before helping Joey operate the pump. And just watch his face when the marshmallow gets launched…
Okay, who’s got some marshmallows? Now I’m in the mood.
