Possibly inspired by the adorable viral hashtag #ObamaAndKids this weekend, it appears that President Obama caught wind of a popular video showing a little girl crying when she learned he was leaving office next January.

The Facebook page, belonging to the little girl’s grandmother, Caprina D. Harris, shows a video of her totally distraught “dranbaby” snot-crying and saying, “I’m not ready” to let the president go, as her grandmother patiently explains that a president can only serve two terms.

The message attached to the video read, “On Saturday morning just before Gymnastics, My Dranbaby found out that our President Barack Obama was no longer going to be our President!!! He has been her President all of her life and Yes her birthday is also on AUGUST 4!!!! My poor baby!!!”

The president then responded by posting a message in the comments section of the post saying, Caprina, tell her to dry her tears, because I’m not going anywhere. Once I leave the White House, I’ll still be a citizen just like her. And when she grows up, she can get involved right alongside me. In the meantime, I’ll keep an eye out for her letter, and we’ll always get to celebrate our birthdays together!
