1. Meanwhile, at the grocery store checkout, Trump's buddy's "National Enquirer" is telling us

Malia has gone to rehab. If shave ice in Hawaii is therapy, count me in.

12. Yes, I'd mentioned that Nat. EnKKKuirer story last week.... sickening lies


That same EnKKKuirer cover mentioned all the 'bold' decisions tRump had made recently. What a total crock of shit. Too bad Pres. Obama won't ever sue those bastards for libel, that fucker deserves to be relieved of some of his $millions.

Turn those tabloids in the checkout lines backward. Small protest but everything counts!

Thank you, Obama family, for bringing grace and dignity to the White House and for being a wonderful example to the country.

He has an ugly smirk in that one, like he's giving the one-finger salute to America.

Look at those tiny hands!

9. Back when I went to high school in Hawaii

there was a small market just off campus that made best shave ice.
The huge, clear and hard squares of ice were spun over a blade so that
the ice was thin and not crunchy. Oh man, and sushi for a dime.

10. Barry's favorite shave ice stand from his youth is still there

 

on a back street in the McCully section of Honolulu a few blocks from his grandma's house. And they serve his favorite flavor!

17. I used to live in the McCully area on Date Street

My friends and I would go McCully Chop Suey to slurp down bowls of soft gau gee min, which I've never found in SoCal.

Good times.

15. Hawaii roots made Obamas presidency special

Hawaii roots made Obama’s presidency special

Mahalo Mr President!

lmost nine years ago, then-U.S. Sen. Barack Obama in giving his campaign-defining “More Perfect Union” speech set what many hoped would be the course to a new United States.

In discussing race and answering the critics of his former pastor, the man who would make history as the U.S.’s first African-American presidential nominee and two-term president, talked of racial tensions, white privilege and black anger in a manner so compelling, inclusive and direct that it filled supporters and voters with hope.

“I believe deeply that we cannot solve the challenges of our time unless we solve them together — unless we perfect our union by understanding that we may have different stories, but we hold common hopes; that we may not look the same and we may not have come from the same place, but we all want to move in the same direction — towards a better future for our children and our grandchildren,” Obama said.

Star

Mahalo, bigtree~

21. True Cha! Merry Christmas!

Also - President Obama made the Presidency itself special again because HE is so special.

Kind
Intellectual
Thoughtful
Measured
Funny
Honorable
Talented
Compassionate
Tactful
Classy
Intelligent
Practical
Curious
Knowledgeable
Charismatic
Witty
Gentle
Strong

I'm sure there are so many more positive one-word descriptions for the greatest president of the modern age.

22. Obama did make the Presidency so Special.. and

I think we're going to find out a lot more about just how special down the road.

One thing I'd like to add to your amazing list of qualities attributed to our brilliant President Obama..

Courageous!

25. The ONLY thing DFT has in common...

...with our beloved President Obama is 46 chromosomes.

Maybe not even that. When I watched the first Men in Black movie way back when, and they showed the wall with all the "resident aliens" inhabiting Earth, I remember thinking that it seemed like a very plausible explanation. Maybe Trump was on that wall, and I didn't notice.

Malia has turned out so beautiful. What a beautiful family, inside and out. I can't even say how much I'll miss them.

20. I HATE seeing him go but I'm happy he gets to be a guy, and a dad, and a husband

again. Not that he wasn't those things all along as well - but the Presidency is such a crushing weight. . . . it cannot help but intrude on all those other roles.

I am sad for us; happy for him.

26. Well one thing we can say positive

Is there will be no starker contrast between the class, dignity, intelligence, and maturity of two consecutive administrations. I just hope asshole doesn't get us or the planet killed. Or the country bamkrupted.
