President Obama took a little time off from the campaign trail to catch a pre-Olympic basketball exhibition game between the U.S. men’s team and Brazil. He sat front row with wife Michelle and their oldest daughter Malia, and was caught off guard when he appeared on the jumbotron’s kiss-cam. Instead of actually kissing, they just hugged and were met with boos from the crowd.
The second time around, they were encouraged by Malia to kiss and the Prez went for it. This time they got cheers and there were a couple of chants of “fourmore years!” I love the faces on the Secret Service Agents behind them. I’m sure they’ve seen that all before. Like any other kid, Malia looked a little embarrassed when her parents started dancing in their seats. They humiliate their kids in public, just like other parents too.
I think it’s safe to say we’re a little jealous of Michelle here.
At a campaign stop in Glen Allen, Virginia, President Obama got caught in one of the many rain storms the South has been subject to lately. The Prez and his many supporters braved the downpour and he gave us frankly, some of the Sexiest Pictures of his Presidency. Am I allowed to say that about the President? [DivaJulia: “Hell, yeah.”]
“We’re going to have to treat everybody for a little salon, hair visit after this,” he joked. I definitely wouldn’t mind sweating out my perm for Barack. Seriously, am I about to be contacted by the FBI? As you can see, even the babies love Obama!
This chick. That photo! I actually really admire Madalyn Starkey for being such a dorky fan-girl and owning it when she had the opportunity to meet President Obama in a small restaurant in Colorado. And just look at the smile on POTUS’s pretty face. Daaayum.
Madalyn spoke with Al Sharpton about her encounter with the President:
“It just like didn’t even seem real, I have seen him on tv, and now he is at the same restaurant with me with only 30 other people? And we called him ‘the casual Obama’ because he took off his jacket, and was just being all the charismatic guy he is. It was incredible.”
“What was the exchange like?” questioned Sharpton.
“That was a bit awkward,” Starkey revealed. “He went over to everyone’s table first off, and finally the paparazzi like cleared out of the way and he got to our table, and the only thing I said to him was ‘Can I get a picture,’ and he said ‘stand up,’ we took the picture, and then literally all I said was, ‘you smell good’ — and that was the end of the conversation. Because I just get so starstruck that I was just like –ahhh! — I couldn’t say anything.”
All I want in this life is to smell Barack’s neck. that’s it. Nothing more. Madalyn came real close to livin’ MY dream. I’m sort of thrilled for her, but mostly mega-jell. Oh, and there is NOT an age-limit on being a dorky fan-girl, in case you’re wondering.
