He may be the Commander-in-Chief, but standing in the face of a little girl’s tantrum can still prove tough for Barack Obama.

A picture of the president looking down at a toddler mid-tantrum in the White House has circulated wildly online. Little Claudia Moser had been pounding out her anger on the carpet.

The girl’s frustration was met with Obama rasing his hands in a gesture of helplessness.

Her mother, U.S. journalist and author Laura Moser, posted the snap to Twitter showing Claudia in the middle of her tirade, in full view of Barack and Michelle Obama – who looked on bemused.

Moser then revealed on Twitter that the moment was “just one of ten tantrums that hour.”

It’s not the first time Obama has faced toddler tantrums as president.

In September, the young son of a U.S. secret service agent face-planted into a sofa in the Oval Office. The boy was reportedly “bored.”
