Being invited to the White House might be a lifetime ambition for some - but not for others.

In fact, for toddler Claudia, having to hang out with US president Barack Obama, his wife and First Lady Michelle Obama, and a host of other VIPs at Passover was, quite literally, the worst thing ever.

Her mother, US journalist and author Laura Moser, posted a snap of the adorable tot to Twitter showing her in the midst of what looked like an epic tantrum - in full view of the POTUS.

To give the president credit, he seemed to take it all in his stride, gesturing to the wailing child with both hands as if to say, "Yep, this is what I get every day."

And that might not be far from the truth - for Mr Obama has two daughters of his own, Malia and Sasha, who have also been caught out on camera acting, well, exactly like children.

It's also not the first time that one of the most powerful men in the world has been trumped by the behaviour of a small person.
