We all know President Obama and First Lady Michelle are not exactly big fans of President-Elect Donald Trump. However, it seems the tension runs even deeper than we imagined — despite some attempts to put on a good face.
Trump met with Obama today. As part of the largely symbolic visit, they were supposed to take a First Family photo — featuring the outgoing and incoming first families — but it was cancelled instead.
Definitely seems as if our current president is a bit bitter about watching his legacy go up in smoke, doesn’t it?
Breitbart is reporting, The current First Couple cancelled a planned photo opportunity with the incoming First Couple, according to a Wall Street Journal report.
The Wall Street Journal reports:The Obamas canceled a photo-op of the current and future first couples outside the south entrance of the White House. In his first visit to the White House after the 2008 election, Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama posed for the cameras alongside President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush. The decision not to participate in this tradition illustrates how bitter the campaign was, particularly for Mrs. Obama who delivered some of the most emotional arguments against electing Mr. Trump. On Thursday President-elect Donald Trump traveled to Washington, D.C. to meet with President Barack Obama in private. Obama had invited Trump to the White House for the meeting, as is customary.
When then-President George W. Bush met with then-incoming President Obama after the 2008 presidential election, the two couples posed for the customary, historic photo together.

When Bush welcomed Obama, he walked with him through the Colonnade by the Rose Garden, then entered the Oval Office with him, behaving like a class act the entire time.
Unfortunately, classiness isn’t a character trait Obama seems to possess, so it’s not really all that shocking he wouldn’t roll out the red carpet for his successor, knowing Trump is likely going to destroy Obamacare, the only real “accomplishment” of his administration.
Still, whether one ideologically agrees with their successor or not, a person in such a high and respectable office should conduct themselves in a manner worthy of that honor. Obama’s clearly not doing that.
Yet another example of just how childish and petty liberals can be.
