During an address outlining his proposal to curb gun violence on Tuesday, President Barack Obama shed a few tears and raised a few eyebrows. Although it may seem shocking for the leader of the free world — who also happens to be a man — to cry in public, there's absolutely no shame in acknowledging that he's a human being with emotions. Because he had a lot to be emotional about. During the speech he listed just a handful of the many, many times he's had to address the nation following a mass shooting. Obama's speech Tuesday was just one of many times he wasn't afraid to show his emotions, because the issues he's dealing with are serious, and sometimes remaining stone faced just wouldn't be human.
But here's the thing: this wasn't the first time that Obama has cried publicly, or publicly admitted to a private cry. Perhaps due to the fact that he's on camera more often than presidents of the past, or maybe because he's just more in touch with (and unashamed to express) his emotions, we've seen our president cry quite a few times. Here are six other times Obama has cried, because he's just a human being.
