Screen Shot 2014-05-22 at 13.04.32On Wednesday, President Obama ditched the motorcade and made his way by foot to the Department of the Interior located at 1849 C St. NW. Along the way, he chatted with locals, tourists, food cart operators, and runners, who shook hands and posed for pictures with the President as he passed out White House M&Ms to kids.

Highlights: While posing for a photo, Karen says that, “Someone’s going to think you’re like wax.” Also, Obama quips to a group of runners that stopped to shake his hand that, “You could be running in place right now.” Totally, slackers.

Take a look at the surprise walk via the White House’s YouTube channel after the jump.
