21 of President Obama's Ultimate Dad Moments—in GIFs
After eight years serving as POTUS, Barack Obama is about to hang up his presidential hat for good. His presidency will be remembered in history not just as the first African American to serve in the position, but obviously for all of his amazing dad jokes, late night show appearances, and exemplary charisma that captivated the nation for almost a decade.
Last week's final White House Christmas Tree lighting had Obama in his best form: singing "Jingle Bells" on stage in front of the crowd, flanked by celebrities like Eva Longoria and Kelly Clarkson, and of course, his wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia.
Seriously, it does not get better than this. It's moments like these that make him so relatable: Can't you just see your own dad singing and dancing in the same way?
