How does a country go from Obama to Trump, that’s like owning a Bugatti and swapping it for a Mobility Scooter.

feels weird seeing a president who isn’t a racist/ homophobe/ transphobe/ sexist/ ableist-

Here's the Difference:
Leslie wore a full suit to the White House
Lin wore jeans
They were bound to duel. Over what, you may ask? Fashion sense. Burr has always been classy, while Hamilton has always dressed like fake royalty....

“These young me- people put on performances of their own” say what you want about Obama, but I could tell he looked down at the speech in front of him, noticed a mistake, and fixed it. I was raised to thing that president Obama was wicked from a young age, but I see things like this and it makes me sick to thing that I was raised in such a biased environment. I don’t much care for politics, but this was definitely an eye opener.
Was it really 4 years ago when Barack was president..? It feels like a lifetime ago now we’re left with an orange🍊
