8. He's such a natural with children.

They adore him. You can see it on their faces. Trump will never have anything close to that kind of love and admiration. His supporters worship him because he fires up the hatred and anger in them and because he "sticks it" to the people they despise. They will never look at him with such joy in their hearts like Obama's admirers.

I hope he sees these photos and just seethes with jealousy.

126. Only the dumpster's royal family

and partners in crime are now welcome in our WH. The pos residing there called it "a dump". He avoids walking the halls by sitting on his bowl tweeting. It's a shame the media considers every smell from under the door as a gift for them to report. If they wanted to help clean the swamps, the media would focus on the multitude of scandals and not fawn over an appearance of the dullard, his concubine or his spawn. (credit to little kim for dotard)

I hope he sees these photos and just seethes with jealousy.

One of the things I noticed about him is that he ALWAYS gave his full attention to any child he was engaging. Itís like he turned the world off for a few moments for an intimate word, or to listen, or hug, or laugh with a child. And itís easy to see that children loved him.

He's actually interacting with them. A REAL person...not a mythical person.

Imagine those little black kids seeing a person like them in that office.

Imagine seeing those pictures and realizing you were next to greatness.

I not only remember him, I MISS him.

There is literally nothing Trump has done that Republicans haven't convinced themselves that Obama somehow did worse.

The photographic evidence of his benevolent aura is overwhelming. Can't fake it.

But remember that as these photos were being taken, remorseless and ruthless Trumpericans were plotting with foreign military intelligence operatives to destroy all of it from within.

Bastards.

And it's wonderful to see the children looking up to him.

I love the one with the little black boy in the crowd looking up to him with my whole heart.

Just like our country needed that with a black man in the person that was Obama - we need that with a woman like Warren.

She gets it - what it means, esp. to little girls. But the effect would be for every one of us.

My choice is for Harris for VP. Because we all need to be represented.

121. Wonderful pictures.

The picture of the little girl hugging his neck always made me want to title it, "Safe."

For every single person who voted for Donald J Trump, I have just one question: "What the hell is wrong with you?"

Our standing in the world had been repaired, the economy had been brought back from the brink of disaster and was on the upswing, and people were gaining jobs and prosperity. We were gaining stability in the areas that had been under war, and we were making progress on withdrawing troops. What the hell is it that you thought needed to be fixed? Or was it just plain greed, the fact that you wanted to be one of the 1%, , and this so-called great businessman would make us all brazillionaires? Did you just hate the idea of a woman, any woman, being president? Did you resent the fact that a black man was so popular and managed to accomplish so much?

It just makes me sick.

You, all of you, brought this corruption and deceit upon our country. But now, we all have to live with it.

Are you in the 1% yet?

Suckers.
