Washington Post White House reporter David Nakamura is in Hawaii covering President Obama‘s family vacation. In one of the more inane — and there are many — White House pool reports about the trip, the reporter talks about how he regrets not snapping a photograph of the commander-in-chief under a rainbow.

Considering that a few years ago that Nakamura was stuck in a sports laundry room at Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla., where he traveled with Obama, this is a HUGE step up for him.

From the report:

“Morning all, Potus motorcade emerged from Kailua at 7:40 a.m., just after a full and brilliant rainbow appeared over his neighborhood. Your press pool got out and took photos but alas it disappeared before the presidential motorcade rolled by for what would have been a picture that launched a thousand metaphors. A few minutes later, the motorcade arrived at the Marine Corps base at Kaneohe Bay where Potus is working out. Pool holding at McDonald’s.”

On Twitter, Nakamura wrote, “This happened today over the Kailua neighborhood where the Obamas are staying on vacation.”
