Oh“ my God, it is Obama”: Mom takes photos of ex-POTUS holding her baby in Alaska airport (look at that kid's face!) https://apnews.com/e8c2a84d70bf4481b0406ee3562c4417/'Oh-my-God,-it-is-Obama':-Alaska-mom,-baby-meet-ex-president

An Alaska mother is cherishing cellphone photos she snapped of her wide-eyed 6-month-old baby in the arms of former President Barack Obama.

Jolene Jackinsky was at Anchorage International Airport on Monday looking for an airline when she ended up in a waiting area for private flights where a man she thought looked like Obama was sitting.

“As I got closer, I thought: Oh my God, it is Obama,” she recalled Friday from Newhalen, a small Alaska village where she’s vacationing.





Obama then walked up to her and asked “Who is this pretty girl?”

...Giselle was calm and content during the brief encounter, Jackinsky said. “It was only five minutes but it was a moment that will last forever,” she said

I've got the 'Trump Ten' on me.. that weight gain from stress since he's been elected. I love how the medical world acknowledges that is a real thing for many patients they are seeing My sister's doctor says he's seeing a lot of it.

It seems these days that it's only babies and the occasional glimpse of our former president can make me feel there's still some good left in the world.

Ex-Potus is accessorizing well, with the Under Armour sweater and the smart watch!

7. Obama tells Trudeau: Start dyeing your hair early

“I indicated to him that if, in fact, you plan to keep your dark hair, then you have to start dyeing it early,” Obama said to laughs.

“You hit a certain point,” Obama added to the chestnut-haired prime minister, when “it’s too late. You’ll be caught.”

Watch: President Obama protects wedding ring as he shakes hands with public

GREENSBORO, N.C. — One of the jobs of the leader of the free world is to shake hands with the public. A lot of hands.

For President Obama, that means taking additional precautions — and we don't mean by using a lot of disinfectant afterward.

The video shows the president approaching a rope line at the airport here in Greensboro, where he is spending Tuesday at a town hall-style event on race and a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton. After leaving Air Force One, Obama walked toward a small crowd that had gathered to welcome him on the tarmac.

Watch as Obama, who recently celebrated his 24th wedding anniversary, deftly takes off his wedding band and slips it into his pocket before shaking hands.
