Magazine CovHER: Barack And Michelle Obama Essence
This year is definitely bittersweet as Barack and Michelle Obama gear up to leave the White House for good. The Obamas grace their last cover of Essence magazine as the POTUS and FLOTUS and they’re absolutely stunning.
I swear these have been some of the best eight years in the presidential aspect for me. Since they’re being forced to leave, I don’t know who in the hell I’m voting for. All I know is I will NOT be voting for Trump. I tell you that damn much.
Inside the Essence issue, the Obamas dish on their life in the White House, the state of the nation and the legacy they hope to leave behind.
Peep excerpts and more pics from their Essence cover below:
“…I can unequivocally say that America is better off now than we were when we came into office. By almost every economic measure, we’re better off,” President Obama said. “But having said that, we still have a lot of work to do.”
On the memories in the White House:
“The memories that last ultimately are the family memories,” President Obama said. “Some of my fondest memories of the White House are just being with the girls on a summer night and walking the dogs around the South Lawn, talking and listening to them, trying to get Bo to move because sometimes it’s hot.”
