27. Yes, the faces of people surrounding the Obamas are almost always smiling

Unlike the sneering, fearful faces of most of the people at Trump photo ops.

That seems like the kind of fevered, deluded joy she might get on her face when Trump tells her to drink the poisoned Kool-Aid.

35. Another view - taken by woman's husband:



(Matthew Calamari is behind Trump)

Woman's name is Sydnie Shuford:

Tell us a little about yourself.

"I was born and raised in Mobile. I went to St. Paul's Episcopal School and received my bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of South Alabama. I have been working for Mobile County Public Schools for 10 years as a teacher and most recently a school counselor. I have two stepdaughters, Olivia, 14, and Taylor, 12, and our son, Jackson, 8 months. We live in Spring Hill."

Are you a fan of Donald Trump? What do you like about him?

"We are fans of his television personality. He is somewhat mesmerizing as a person, and his recent candidacy for president of the United States has interested our entire family. I like the fact that he is honest when stating his ideas and agendas. However, I do not agree with everything he has to say."

15. I wish he could have fulfilled all his potential.

But in the final analysis I believe he'll be viewed as one of the greatest presidents. He held this country together for eight years longer than it deserved, IMO, considering the measure of its appreciation for his efforts.

38. That's what we call bubbling over with joy!

What a beautiful and lucky child. He'll get to carry photos and stories about this his entire life, especially after President Obama receives the appreciation he deserves.

Thank you Barack for the example you continue to set for our youth!.......

He also sets a great example for our adult men as an old-fashioned gentleman, although few will see and follow him. The same applies to Michelle. She's a fine example of a great lady as she and Barack still represent America to the world.

That's one of the worst deficits our country is suffering from today.....folks have forgotten how to be everyday ladies and gentlemen.....
