These tweets are really giving me the feels.
It feels like it’s been a lifetime since Barack and Michelle Obama were in the White House. Oh, what I would give to go back to those good old days.
But instead, we are stuck living here in the twilight zone with daily scandals, pathological lying, corruption, Russian collusion, pee tapes, and porn stars. I have been outraged since the election. And it’s exhausting.
But this week I found something that made me a feel a little better. A new Twitter hashtag game this week called #OldThingsIWantBack was exactly what I needed.
The vast majority of the tweets following the hashtag were talking about things we all had before Trump won the presidency. And a whole lot of them were about Obama.
It’s nice to think about life before the Trump nightmare. I really want all of these things back too. Thanks Twitter.
#OldThingsIWantBack is filled with images of the Obamas and I am 💯 here for it.
Never underestimate what it's meant for girls to watch a strong, intelligent woman in a healthy relationship with a man who thinks she hung the moon. pic.twitter.com/sWS7ZCzwD4

The idea that THIS behavior is unacceptable for ANY politician, let alone a President. pic.twitter.com/nPzdBXUl3y

Normal blood pressure.
My illusions about many people.
A non-horrible President with a vocabulary higher than a 5th grader.
A Fox News-free world.

Being able to sleep soundly at night.
A REAL President.
Republicans who aren't owned by special interests.
Kids going to school without active shooter drills.

A President who loves America more than Russia, more than himself.
A President who loves the truth.
A President who loves all Americans despite their race, their sex, their political beliefs.
In other words, I miss having A REAL AMERICAN PRESIDENT.🇺🇸

A president who made me proud to be an American, rose to the challenges of the office and respected all of its citizens regardless of ideological differences. #OldThingsIWantBack

When people had a sense of integrity and common respect. People are becoming more ignorant because they refuse to educate themselves in fear that their ideals will be questioned.
Oh…and Obama. I freaking loved that guy.
