Father’s Day may have been last weekend, and Sasha and Malia may be a little too old for this kind of comforting, but President Barack Obama proved recently that he still has the magic touch with babies.

The president and First Lady Michelle Obama were greeting supporters on a rope line, and Michelle was holding a fan’s crying baby. Barack made faces at the inconsolable infant, repeating, “oh, no!” Eventually, the mother asked for a picture of the president holding the baby. As soon as he gathered it up, the baby stopped crying.

Barack Obama: Baby whisperer. Witness also wife Michelle’s look of joking jealousy at his Midas touch.
