Like the one who got away, when we see former President Obama out there just living his life like the world isn’t burning down, it hurts, guys. It really, really hurts. It’s not like we’re just sitting here in our pajamas well past noon drowning our sorrows in a pint of Ben & Jerry’s dreaming of the progressive utopia we almost had until he unceremoniously dumped us.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, we’re keeping busy — we’re marching and calling our representatives and fighting for health care and LGBTQ rights and undocumented immigrants and stuff — but Obama is out there living his best life kitesurfing and traveling the world with Michelle and wearing suits without ties. Without ties, guys. Like these 11 times he was just out there having fun without us. It’s like we don’t even know him anymore. Baby come back?
