Cookie Monster Is At The White House! (VIDEO)

Vine

WASHINGTON -- The White House receives politicians, dignitaries, celebrities and other well-known figures on a daily basis. It usually doesn't post Vine videos of those visits.

The White House tweeted out a Vine of everyone's favorite sugar fiend, Cookie Monster, peeking and waving from behind a pillar.

Cookie Monster was visiting on serious business. Wednesday, the White House hosted a panel on the issues facing kids of incarcerated parents. "Sesame Street" head writer Joey Mazzarino moderated.

D.C.'s bakeries must be great -- this isn't Cookie Monster's first visit to the nation's capital this spring. In May, the blue creature was at the Rayburn House Office Building to join lawmakers for a USO event.
