Gallery Mondays: The White House

I had the honor of visiting Washington, D.C. during the 4th of July weekend in 2016—a time when President Obama still had months left of his second term, and everyone was still grappling with the fact that Donald Trump would be on the ballot come November.

Now that we’re days away from the inauguration, Obama and his family are probably packing up boxes of stuff and getting ready to head out of the White House this week.

I’m really going to miss him. Obama was a unique president in every way. However, I’ve come to realize that it’s time to start coming to terms with the fact that Donald Trump is getting sworn into office on Friday.

Thankfully, I’ll be at work during the ceremony, so I won’t have to watch it. I know many are planning to boycott channels showing live coverage the ceremony as well.

The next four years are going to be a wild ride. We have to remember that whatever happens, Trump cannot define us as Americans. He may be the face of our nation for the next four years, but he doesn’t have any power over our individual reputations.

Stay strong. Fight for what you believe in. Politics are always going to be a dirty game, but when we come together, there’s nothing we can’t do to bring about change.

Enjoy this model of the White House I saw last year at the White House Visitor Center.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and God bless America.

I can’t believe his term is almost over!

Yesterday, August 4th, President Barack Obama turned 55! He’s getting gray but he still looks pretty good for 55.

Over on Elite Daily there’s a story about this little girl who cried about the fact that Obama’s term is ending. I feel her.

There’s also this hilarious video of Joe Biden and Obama. It’s great. I’m really going to miss them both when January 2017 rolls around.

Check out this really cool dollar bill with some fan art of Obama on it. Can these get printed once his term is over? I’d like to keep one for my collection.

Fan Art Fridays: Kanye West for President

As many of you have heard, Kanye West announced his 2020 presidential run during Sunday’s MTV VMA award show.

I can never tell if he’s under the influence when he says crazy stuff like this.

Anyway, it looks like his fans saw this coming and created some campaign art for him. See the original on Pinterest, and enjoy Kanye’s VMA speech below.
