People Can't Get Enough Of This Little Boy Finding Out Obama Can't Be President Anymore

    Four-year-old Christopher doesn't know much about Barack Obama, other than thinking he's the "funniest guy ever".

    Four-year-old Christopher lives with his mother, Anilu, in Las Vegas. He's also a pretty big fan of Obama, although he doesn't really understand what the whole ~presidency~ thing means.


    On Sunday, Anilu was explaining to Christopher that Obama's time as president of the United States was coming to an end. Christopher didn't want to hear a word of it, and people all over Twitter are sharing his reaction to the news.

    I told Christopher Obama can't be president anymore and he started crying

    "I told him Obama wasn't going to be president anymore and he was so in denial," Anilu told BuzzFeed News. "It was funny so I decided to record him, I didn't think he would actually cry."

    "Baby, we have to pick a new president, Obama has to go," Anilu can be heard saying in the video.

    "No," responds Christopher through tears.

    Anilu's video has racked up tens of thousands of retweets since Sunday.

    Anilu said Christopher doesn't really understand what Obama's job is, just that he's "the boss of the US".


    "He loves watching Obama's White House correspondents' dinner on YouTube," she said. "He thinks Obama is the funniest guy ever. Before I took the video he told me, 'Mom, when I grow up to be a man I'm gonna see President Obama.'"

    Obama will be in Las Vegas this Sunday, and Anilu plans to take Christopher along.

    "I'm going to try to go and see if Christopher can meet him in person," she said.
