Washington, June 5 (ANI): The fifth grader who was excused from class last week with a handwritten note from President Barack Obama himself, says he was simply shocked when the president began scribbling on a piece of paper.
Tyler Sullivan had skipped school on Friday to catch Obama's speech at a Honeywell plant in Golden Valley, Minnesota, where his father, Ryan, gave introductory remarks.
The impromptu note from Obama, written on official White House stationery with the presidential seal, read: Mr. Ackerman - Please excuse Tyler ... he was with me! Barack Obama.
I felt really shocked and I just had a huge grin on my face, the Politico quoted Sullivan as saying on CNN Monday morning.
I was like, 'Really? He's writing me an excuse note? That's really crazy, he said. (ANI)
