This little dude has figured out the best way to get past White House security: a diminutive frame and an adorable bow-tie. The snazzy dresser is Corbin Fleming, whose sister Lauren is a March of Dimes national ambassador invited to the White House in February.

Or perhaps he just really wanted to issue an executive order recognizing Yo Gabba Gabba! Let's just hope they keep the red phone better protected.
