Obama Is No Longer The President

One cold day in late January, 2017, an old Veteran approaches the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he’d been sitting on a park bench.

He speaks to a U.S. Marine standing guard and says, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The Marine looks at the old Veteran and says, "Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here. President Donald Trump is now the President and the occupant of the White House."

The old man says, "Okay, thanks" and walks away.

The following day the same old Veteran approaches the White House and says to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The Marine again tells the old Veteran, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here. President Donald Trump is now our President and the occupant of the White House."

The man thanks him and again just walks away.

The third day the same old Veteran approaches the White House and speaks to the very same U.S. Marine, saying, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The young Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looks at the old Veteran and says, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I've told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the President and no longer resides here. Donald Trump is now our President. President Trump is now the occupant of the White House. Don't you understand?"

The old Veteran looks at the Marine, smiles and says, "Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it."

The Marine snaps to attention, salutes, smiles and says, "See you tomorrow Sir!"
