Fly proves buzzkill for Obama at White House event

Obama paused to take a few swats at the fly. 


"This guy is bothering me here," he said, as the fly circled him and then seemingly flew away for less presidential pastures. 

It wasn't Obama's first run in with a pesky pest. He paused during a 2009 interview with CNBC to take a whack at another fly, using his right hand to kill a fly that landed on his left hand. 

"Now where were we?" he asked, before proudly adding, "That was pretty impressive. I got the sucker."
