Barack Obama had a cosmology-themed children’s gala on his lawn last night, wherein he invited 150 local middle schoolers to come over and check out his bitchin telescopes, but not in a braggy way.

It was, unarguably, the single most successful event to take place at the White House during our time or any other. [The Swamp]
