Barack Obama Stumbles on Oath at Inauguration Ceremony

The President lets his emotions get the best of him for a mere second

After he was sworn in on Sunday and officially began his second term as President of the Unites States, Barack Obama was congratulated by his youngest daughter with, “Good job dad. You didn’t mess up.”

Not the same applied for yesterday’s ceremony in Washington, DC, as the video above will confirm.

As he was being sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts, the President clearly let his emotions get the best of him for a fraction of a second – but it was more than enough for a minor fumble.

“I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United St…,” Obama said.

Seeing that Roberts wanted to rush past it, he then just let it go but, by the look on his face, he wasn’t happy with himself.

Turns out Presidents are human just like the rest of us, what do you know.
