The latest viral 'selfie' comes from the bathroom of the White House Press Holiday Party.

Reddit user 'Chimps_Rnt_Monkeys' has gone viral after posting a 'selfie' from the bathroom of the white house.

Entitled 'As per request: Selfie in the White House Bathroom', the post has amassed over 2,5000 upvotes and over 1,400 comments in just over ten hours.

The user first posted to the subreddit 'Fancy Follicles' requesting assistance deciding what hairstyle to wear to the White House, at which point the photo requests were made.

According to the thread, the woman is a partner of a journalist invited to attend the White House Holiday Press Party.

Following the post, a request was submitted for a "selfie with the President" to which she replied "Totally did get to take a picture with him and the first lady... I have to wait for them to email that one."
