The White House is the official residence of the President of the United States. At the present time President Obama and his family live there. It has been the residence of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1800. I wanted to take a photo of the White House and this is as close as we could get and we aren’t sure why. There were a lot of people coming out of the park in front of the White House, so I asked a lady what was going on and she said she didn’t know but they had evacuated the park and so she was asked to leave. We didn’t hear of anything on the news, so, this is the best I could do. Notice the sharp shooters (2) on the roof.
