Former President Barack Obama donned a fluffy red cap to surprise patients and pass out a few gifts Wednesday at Children’s National hospital in Washington, D.C.
The facility is the same one his wife, Michelle Obama, visited every holiday season during her time as first lady to read stories to patients. She sometimes came with one of the couple’s two daughters.
