It was moving day at the White House today. First, embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned his post, then Press Secretary Jay Carney did so, as well. So, understandably, the President might need a hug.

But, Jay Carney did his best to make the hug as awkward as possible by grabbing Obama’s elbow.  Needless to say, social media sprung into action, dubbing the moment with numerous musical interludes.
