President Obama was taken aback when a girl greeted him in the most unusual manner last month. A toddler visiting the White House for the Passover Dinner had a fit and threw herself down on the Red Room's carpet – right at Obama's feet.

Well, that's no way to greet the President, but looks like someone was not really very happy to meet President Obama. In a photo taken during Passover Seder in April, two-year-old Claudia Chaudhary threw a massive temper tantrum in front of The President.

Claudia was there with her father, Arun Chaudhary, President Obama's videographer during his 2008 presidential campaign, and mother Laura Moser.

Though the picture was taken nearly two months ago, it only surfaced on Thursday, when Claudia's uncle, New York Times columnist Benjamin Moser, tweeted, "This really might be the best picture ever: my niece Claudia throwing a fit at Passover."


"My daughter is an Internet meme!" Laura tweeted, while sharing the photo again later.

As you can see in the picture, the Commander-in-Chief handled it like a pro. He looks amused, helpless and is smiling for the camera while young Claudia Moser, daughter of journalist Laura Moser pounds the White House carpet with her tiny fists.

Benjamin said that his niece was left overwhelmed by the amount of people at the Passover Seder reception.

"She's a very nice girl and not a brat or anything. She was just having a moment," he told Daily Mail Online.

He also revealed that the feisty toddler and her older brother, Leo, grew up going to the White House as the family goes there every year for a special Passover Seder dinner.

"In 2014, it was Leo who caused mayhem for White House staff by running wild during the pre-dinner reception," the uncle revealed.

"They're gonna do what they're gonna do," he added.

But having raised two daughters of his own, Mr President seems unruffled by the tantrums. "He is around kids a lot so he gets it," Moser said.
