This isn’t post-presidency but it came up in my YouTube recos and reminded me what it was like to have an energetic, respectful president.

Yes. I find Individual-1’s awkward straight-armed lumbering very odd.

8-year-old girl goes viral dressing up as hero Michelle Obama

An eight-year-old girl is going viral on social media after a photo emerged of her dressing up as her hero, Michelle Obama, for her school’s Cultural Heroes Day.

In the viral photo, Ella-Lorraine can be seen donning a similar get-up to Obama when she was a freshman student at Princeton University.

“She was really in awe of the idea that with hard work you could become anything,” Ella-Lorraine’s mother, Karlyn Johnson Brown, who also attended Princeton, told Makers on Friday.

“I loved it because by choosing to portray her hero as a college student, the focus was on Michelle’s accomplishments as an individual, not just as an attachment,” Brown continued.

Brown told Makers that she has always encouraged Ella-Lorraine to look up to strong women. <SNIP>

Several folks have asked me if they could share my daughter's Michelle Robinson (Obama) at Princeton double take photo. Here is a public share-able version and a photo of just my own tiger cub by herself. If you share, please just credit and/or tag me. I'd love to see where it goes. Thanks!

Michelle is a power house in her own right. Celebrating strong women and role models, here! :) #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #sheroars #representationmatters #michelleobama #princetonuniversity

Associated Press
Barack Obama receives RFK Human Rights award at NYC gala

Former President Barack Obama was honored with the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award at a gala in midtown Manhattan Wednesday evening.

"I'm not sure if you've heard, but I've been on this hope kick for a while now. Even ran a couple of campaigns on it. Thank you for officially validating my hope credentials," Obama said during his remarks.

The organization's president, Kerry Kennedy, presented the award, which celebrates leaders "who have demonstrated a commitment to social change." Past recipients include Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Bono, George Clooney and Robert De Niro.

"If we summon our best selves, we can inspire others to do the same. It's easy to succumb to cynicism, the notion that hope is a fool's game," Obama said.

"When our leaders are content on making up whatever facts they want, a lot of people have begun to doubt the notion of common ground," Obama said. "Bobby Kennedy's life reminds us to reject such cynicism." ...

This year also marks the 50 anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy's campaign for the White House.

Michelle Obama does Fortnite 'orange justice' dance with Santa

Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance Thursday at a children's hospital in Colorado, where the former first lady spoke with children alongside Santa Claus at an event and read the holiday classic "The Night Before Christmas."

One child at the event, one of several surprise appearances for Obama in recent weeks, reportedly asked her about her dancing skills, and was shown coaching her on the "orange justice" dance from the popular "Fortnite" video game. <snip>

Barack Obama fills in for Santa Claus during surprise Christmas visit to children's hospital
Updated 28 minutes ago

Barack Obama paid a surprise visit to the Children's National Medical Center in Washington DC, bringing with him a sack of presents for the young patients.

Mr Obama was given a rock star's entrance as he entered the hospital, with his swagger giving way to dance moves as he neared the singing crowd.

FASHION > CELEBRITY STYLE

Michelle Obama Really Just Wore Balenciaga’s Thigh-High Glitter Boots

Michelle Obama took plenty of fashion risks during her tenure as First Lady, but her private citizen wardrobe displays a new degree of freedom. With the White House restrictions dropped, Obama and stylist Meredith Koop have had fun pulling out unexpected pieces on the tour for Obama’s memoir, Becoming. This week, she wore a chic Pyer Moss blazer and 3x1 jeans to show off her dance moves with The Roots and a striped Balmain Resort suit dotted with sequins during a visit to Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show. Last night, however, Obama switched things up. Onstage at the Brooklyn Barclay’s Center with Sarah Jessica Parker, one of the fashion’s ultimate chameleons, Obama pulled out the Balenciaga.

Designer Demna Gvasalia is not the first name that comes to mind when you think of First Lady fashion, but the saffron silk shirt dress from his Spring 2019 collection was the perfect choice for Obama. Simple with a knotted detail at the waist and leg-baring silhouette, it made her statement accessories—Balenciaga’s thigh-high knife boots and Jennifer Fisher's gold hoops—all the more alluring. Sleekly designed and covered in holographic glitter, the shoes would have been a standout in any situation, but with the spotlight directed right at them, they were the center of attention.

Michelle Obama Just Stepped Out in $4,000 Gold Thigh-High Boots and I've Never Loved Her More

People are freaking out about Michelle Obama's $3,900 boots

Michelle Obama has made her way around the United States for the first leg of the book tour for her memoir Becoming. But despite sharing numerous moving anecdotes about growing up in Chicago and eventually landing in the role of first lady, people seem to be most inspired by the impeccable sense of style she displayed on her last stop in Brooklyn on Wednesday.

Taking the stage with fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker, Obama looked majestic in an all-gold look by Balenciaga, which featured the thigh-high boots of everyone’s dreams. The $3,900 pair of sequined metallic boots made the former first lady’s legs look never-ending beneath her silk dress, and have quickly made it onto the holiday wish lists of people across the country. <snip>

Freeway in Los Angeles renamed 'President Barack H. Obama Highway'

Signs renaming a stretch of a freeway based in Los Angeles after former President Barack Obama have been installed.

The Associated Press reported on Thursday that the signs renaming the freeway as the President Barack H. Obama Highway had been installed throughout a section of State Route 134 that runs from the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles to Interstate 210 in Pasadena.

Obama went to Occidental College in Eagle Rock in the 1970s and also previously resided in Pasadena, according to the news agency.

The move to rename the section of the highway was authorized by California state Sen. Anthony J. Portantino last year after having won bipartisan support for the legislation. <snip>

Portantino shared a photo of one of the signs installed on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
