Little Girl Throws Epic Tantrum in Front of President Obama

And becomes the Internet's latest meme.

Sometimes you just need a good cry—even if the President is standing a foot away.

During the annual Passover dinner held at the White house in April, two-year-old Claudia Chaudhary was as cute as they come, dressed in a pink plaid dress with her hair in two adorable little top-knots. That is, until she threw herself on the ground of the Red Room Parlor in front of Barack and Michelle Obama. The tantrum was captured in all its glory by White House photographer Pete Souza, and shared by Claudia's mother, White House correspondent Laura Moser, on Twitter (opens in new tab) earlier this week. Naturally, it went viral.

It's just so perfectly meme-worthy: The meltdown going on in the middle, Barack being all ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, Michelle smirking, Claudia's mom looking totally casual about the whole thing, and her little sis whose expression we guess is something like #OMGstop.

Sorry, Claudia, this one is definitely going to haunt you in your teenage years.
