Former President Obama is playing Santa for some young patients at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC. Obama was seen sporting a red Santa hat and carrying a bag full of gifts as he made the surprise rounds of the pediatrics ward Wednesday. Hospital officials say the former commander-in-chief spent about an hour and a half visiting patients and their shocked parents. Obama also thanked the doctors, nurses and staff for looking after “the wonderful kids and their families.” He called it “a great reminder of what the holiday spirit is supposed to be all about.”
