Celebrating the Love Story of President Obama and First Lady Michelle

As the final days of President Obama’s term comes to an end, we’re going to miss the bounty of endearing photos that come from his time in office. His charisma shines in the images captured by official White House photographer Pete Souza, who has also snapped pictures of the rest of the Obama family. From these photographs, it’s clear that the President and the First Lady are still as smitten as the day they first met. The Barack and Michelle Obama love story is both sweet and delightfully down to earth.

Like many people, Barack and Michelle were first acquainted at work. “I met Michelle in 1988,” Barack writes on Oprah.com, “after my first year of law school, when I took a summer job at Sidley & Austin, a law firm in Chicago.” She was assigned as his adviser and helped him “learn the ropes” at the company. “I remember being struck by how tall and beautiful she was,” he recalled. Over time, they got to know each other, and he asked her out. She refused, but he kept asking. “I’m your adviser,” she said. “It’s not appropriate.” When Barack offered to quit his job, she finally agreed. For their first date, they saw Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and ate ice cream afterwards.

1. Contrast this to a man and woman who dont live together, obviously dont care

about each other.

Of course trump really does hate women big time so who can blame his wife for not being around.

The Obama's are like a different species compared to these filthy assholes.

3. It's a temporary separation

Melania Trump is currently in New York because their son Barron is finishing out the school year in New York.
After the school year is over they're coming to live in the White House full time.

I'm not an apologist for the Trump family and I certainly don't admire them.
But I do think you're being unfair about the fact that they're living separately.
It's only temporary and it's for a good reason.

As for the Obamas - they are a delightful couple and family.
It was a pleasure seeing the family photos that they shared with the world.
I will truly miss them and wish them all the best in the future.
