President Barack Obama was no match for Spiderman, getting caught in his web on Wednesday, at least in the White House photo of the day.
On Twitter, the White House posted a picture of Obama seemingly getting stuck in a web, as a young boy in a Spiderman costume reached out his arms toward the President. The child is likely the son of a White House staff member.
The light-hearted moment is much needed, after the nation was rocked last Friday by the Sandy Hook shooting, which tragically took the lives of 26 people, 20 of them were children.
Obama often has unique pictures of himself posted onto his Twitter account. When he was re-elected for a second term, beating former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, he shared a heartfelt picture of himself hugging First Lady Michelle Obama, along with the caption, “Four more years.”
The tweet quickly become the most popular tweet of all time, according to mediabistro.com, after it was re-tweeted over half a million times.
In August, actor and director Clint Eastwood spoke at the Republican National Convention and created a Twitter phenomenon -- "Eastwooding.” He addressed an "invisible" Obama, using an empty chair as his prop onstage.
The interesting speech and prop immediately caused a frenzy on the Internet.
A Twitter account "Invisible Obama," was created, and in the bio, stated that it was located "Stage left of Clint Eastwood," and that "The GOP built me." An hour after Eastwood's speech, it had 20,000 followers.
Even President Obama joined in, as he tweeted a photo of himself from his official account @BarackObama.
In the picture, the President is sitting in his own chair with the caption, "This seat's taken."
