  • On this date during the third year of his Presidency: in Cleveland, Ohio, with Gene Sperling and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner; and later that day in the Oval Office during a meeting with Defense Secretary Robert Gates et al. I can assure you no journalist was saying what Phil Rucker of The Washington Post said today, “White House officials don’t believe the President will face any criminal charges based on the materials they know Mueller has reviewed, but again they can’t be certain.” 😎 #throwshadethenvote

  • On this date in 2011, the third year of his Presidency. On this day, he also held an economic policy meeting, visited wounded warriors at Walter Reed, met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, met with new ambassadors who presented their credentials, and made a public statement about Syria. On this day, he didn’t tweet about fake news or lie about a wall being built. 😎 #throwshadethenvote P.S. Bonus points for anyone that can identify the photo bomber at left. UPDATE: Those who guessed Bill Daley are correct.

  • Remembering seven years ago today when he stopped the motorcade in Medina, Washington, to greet some school kids who were waiting in the rain to watch him drive by.

  • Every Christmas, President Obama would greet military families at Kaneohe Bay Hawaii Marine Corps Base. In 2013, he interacted with this rambunctious youngster. Swipe to see interaction a year later. Merry Christmas to all my followers!😎

  • Big kudos to Lin-Manuel Miranda for bringing his Broadway musical, Hamilton, to Puerto Rico (which Comrade minus occasionally forgets is part of the U.S.). Here is Lin doing a impromptu rap with President Obama in 2016 as part of a documentary film.

  • Happy 64th Birthday to North Philly’s finest - my Dad!
.
I’m so thankful that his expectations of me were always to just be a good person. That’s it! He never pressured me nor asked EVER about when I was getting married, having babies, graduating from college, making money, buying a house, etc. He always just let me be who I was and I exceeded his expectations. In 2015, the President & First Lady were hosting the nation’s governors which happened to fall on his 60th birthday and the musical guest happened to be one of his favorites – Hall & Oates (shout out to EPan). Seeing my Dad sway & bop in his chair in the sea of stiff ass politicians that were clapping on the 1s and 3s made my night. While they all ate in the State Dining Room, the Residence team and Chefs set up linens and food in my office for my Dad and me on a little worktable I had. The Obamas made a big deal about telling him Happy Birthday and then this awkward photo (he was unsure where to put his hands..ha) was snapped. I also don’t think he expected a photo or he would have hemmed his pants! But hey - we are a short family. 🤷🏾‍♀️
.
He tells this story to literally EVERYONE. He loves to say “I ate steak at the White House with the first Black President” as if we were at the same table as the Obamas. But that’s the way he felt. None of this would have been possible if he didn’t just let me be who I needed to be when I needed to be. It was never - “when are you going back to school?” and always - “you good?” Even today, he will tell me - “you can come home whenever you want, you’ve done enough.”
.
Dad, you honestly get on every last good nerve I have with telling me 5 minutes in to a conversation that you only have something quick to say and being on the phone 30 minutes later or blurting out - “what’s wrong with this food” when I take you to a farm-to-table restaurant – but I love you for not expecting me to be anything but me. You were far from perfect but way ahead of this parenting thing and I turned out just fine. Happy Birthday OG! Hope today is the day you hit the numbers. 😭

  • In 2012 I was recruited to leave my post as a Presidential Appointee at the @deptofdefense. This was the highest honor of my life - to be appointed by, and work on behalf of President @barackobama. This was the most fulfilling and impactful job I had ever had thus far in my career. So, why would I ever want to leave?! In truth, I didn’t want to leave my job working for the @usarmy or leave the Pentagon. The stress, long hours, fast pace and uncertainty of another Presidential Campiagn terrified me!  But the risk of not leaving was entirely too high. 🇺🇸
I had two choices: 1. I could remain in my job and watch from the sidelines and lose my job anyways if he was unsuccessful OR 2. I could take the risk and resign, betting everything on the President, his vision, and most importantly my own ability to add value to the mission. I felt I could do it.
The decision was made. I left my post and resigned, and we all know what happened next. #44 #presidentobama 
I found this letter today as I was going through important papers. Tears began to steam down my face as soon as I opened the envelope. As I tried not to let tears fall onto the Presidential Sealed paper, I placed it on the table next to me. And stared. So many memories, emotions and feelings arose; vulnerability, courage, perseverance, and integrity. All I know is that if I would have said “No” and stayed in my comfortable job with the federal government I would have become complacent and regretted that decision for the rest of my life. I felt fear and I chose to act against fear. If I would have said “No”, where would I be now? I guess I will never know. And I’m okay with that. 
DO SOMETHING THAT SCARES YOU! Take a chance on yourself before you take a chance on other people. It may turn out to be the most impactful decision of your life. #risk #courage #fearless #grit #determination #highachiever #highperformancehabits #gogetit #americafirst #presidentobama #whitehouse #deptofdefense #usarmy #civilian #patriotism #usgovernment #pride

  • Should you read this book? Well, do you like feeling inspired? Do you like intelligent people? Do you feel emotional when you think about the power of voting? Do you have a heart or soul?! You will LOVE this book and you might cry your eyes out like I did. Repeatedly
📚
@michelleobama I love you more than I can ever put into words. I will never forget your family’s time in The White House and how inspiring it was. I’m not American but your story is about unity, rising above, and giving a voice to those without. Getting a look into what your family has gone through and achieved was so special. Thank you for being incredible and everything you’ve done for women.

“I grew up with a disabled dad in a top-small house with not much money in a starting-to-fail neighborhood, and I also grew up surrounded by love and music in a diverse city in a country where an education can take you far. I had nothing or I had everything. It depends on which way you want to tell it.”
