Getty President Barack Obama is making his way through the final months of his presidency with a smile on his face. That was the takeaway from a video of the trick-or-treat gathering Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted at the White House on Halloween for children and their families in the area. In the video from the Associated Press, before handing out the candy, President Obama jokes that for once kids don't have to listen to Michelle's dietary advice. He also advises them, "The more candy, the later you eat the candy, the better, because I think being up all night with a sugar rush is exactly what your parents are looking for. The Obamas also busted out what looks like a spontaneous dance routine to Michael Jackson's "Thriller," but it clearly wasn't the "Thriller" dance, and their moves were a tad shaky. But it's hard not to find Barack's dad dance endearing.
