These are sad times. No matter whether you’re a Trump or a Clinton supporter – we’re going to miss Obama. Well, maybe not if you really, really hate Obama. But how could you? He’s shown the world the last eight years that US Presidents can be awesome, which is something we honestly hadn’t seen yet (I’m not counting the Bill Clinton saxophone thing).
Whether you agreed with him on a political level or not, I’m pretty sure his character makes him an amazing person to be around and I’d love to have a drink with him one day (call me Barack, I’m serious). And let’s not forget the sheer amount of charisma that man radiates on a television screen. God damn, now that’s a president.
Since his term is slowly but surely coming to a close, let’s take a look at some of the best moments of eight years Obama has graced us with his presence in international politics.
He is genuinely pleased whenever Michelle compliments him
Look at those two love birds. It’s almost like they don’t have to make decisions that affect the lives of millions of people every day.
He knows how to have fun
This one might seem like an obvious one. I mean sure, everyone has fun sometimes, right? Sure, but name a president that did it openly.
