Cheers to 25 Years of Black Love
Although we've seen them out and about in Italy having the time of their lives without us, today we must set aside our salt to celebrate the couple that we still HIGHKEY wish was in the white house. Today marks the 25th marriage anniversary of our beloved 44th President and First Lady of the United States of America, Barack and Michelle Obama.
On Twitter, former FLOTUS wrote “Happy 25th anniversary @barackobama. A quarter of a century later, you're still my best friend & the most extraordinary man I know. I <3 you,” in celebration of the momentous occasion.
We are beyond thrilled that America’s favorite couple has sustained such an admirable, loving partnership. In honor of their 25 years of flourishing together, here are some of our top moments of the Obamas being actual life #GOALS.
In Barack Obama Obama’s final speech to the nation on January 11, 2017, Obama emphasized to his wife that she has raised the bar for the nation. With teary eyes he said to her, “a new generation sets it’s sights higher because it has you as a role model.” That is probably the best compliment I’ve heard in my entire life and if my husband doesn’t say something similar then I DON’T WANT HIM. Throw him away…
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey at the first United State of Women Summit on June 14th, 2016, Michelle Obama described her husband as “swagailicious,” as she referenced the way he walks. *cues The Way by Kehlani*"
Notable fist bump that occurred at a rally in Minnesota. It was once described as a terrorist fist-jab, but is really a gesture that says “we’re in this together.” The Washington Post called it "the fist bump heard 'round the world.” To those who called it a terrorist fist-jab, have several seats because this is clearly a symbol of unity that y’all know nothing about.
“Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn't be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle” said Barack Obama following Michelle Obama’s final speech as POTUS on January 16th 2016.
After accepting the Profile in Courage Award President Obama expressed kind sentiments about his beloved wife in his acceptance speech. Former POTUS said, “I love my wife and I am grateful for her” at the Kennedy Center at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston.
