Former President Barack Obama recently made a surprise appearance at a Washington, D.C., school, much to the obvious delight of its students—and the rest of us who hope that he’ll be out here more, and more vocal about the sad state of affairs his sad! successor has gotten us into.


Cool-ass B.O. reportedly strode into a McKinley Tech classroom on Friday where a group of students were sitting in a circle with D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Antwan Wilson.

“Hey, how’s it going, everybody?” Obama said to the surprised high schoolers. “The chancellor told me you guys were meeting, so I thought I’d stop by. You don’t mind me crashing, right?”

Obama then took a seat among them and said that when he was president, he would take time to meet with young people wherever he went.

“I do believe that most of the problems that we have are going to be solved by you,” he told them.


And then, in true rock-star style, he left the joint in a motorcade surrounded by hordes of screaming teens.

Besides that in-person appearance, Obama also collaborated with four other former presidents on a PSA in support of Hurricane Harvey victims this week. Again, we HOPE that this means he’ll be back on the scene as an antidote to he who must not even have a decent sized man part our current prez.
