In this clip, first lady Michelle Obama
is shocked and amazed by the president's ability to immediately calm a crying baby. 'Morning Joe
' anchor Willie Geist takes a look at the hilarious footage. "Last week at the White House, the first lady of the United States was holding a crying baby, couldn't soothe the baby," Geist explains. "She passes it to the president. Watch what happens." In the footage, Michelle Obama cradles the baby in her arms, trying to comfort her as she wails and wails. Barack Obama stands by chuckling, trying to soothe the infant with a little baby talk. Finally, the mother asks if she can get a picture of her baby with the president.
When the president takes her, the baby immediately stops crying. The first lady gawks at her husband as he smiles. "And just like that, the baby was healed," Geist jokes.
