President Obama yucked it up with U.S. Olympics gymnast McKayla Maroney on Thursday during a visit that brought Needham's Aly Raisman and other members of the U.S. team to the White House.

"Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President..?'' Maroney tweeted afterward.

Raisman also joked around on Twitter, telling her followers that she was doing her "Hair & makeup in the airport bathroom with @gabrielledoug & @jordyn_wieber getting ready for the white house! LOL'' before the visit.

Raisman and Maroney joined her teammates Gabby Douglas, Kyla Ross, and Jordyn Wieber in the Oval Office to meet Obama, as seen in the official White House photo below.

Raisman tweeted around 5:30 Thursday morning, "On my way to DC to meet the president with the rest of the team!! So cool :) I'm so honored!"

The Fierce Five also got to watch Obama depart from the South Lawn of the White House on the Marine One helicopter.

At the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, the women won the gold medal in the team all-around competition, and Raisman, the team's captain, took home an additional gold and a bronze in individual competitions.
