If any haters needed proof that the Obamas are whole-heartedly good people, here it is.
There’s one thing that everyone can agree on, Democrat or Republican: That American war veterans should command the utmost respect from all members of society.
In a heartwarming antidote to the political bile and hatred Americans have witnessed over the past few months, the Obama family spent their Thanksgiving serving meals to Armed Forces retirement residents in Washington, DC.
WATCH: Pres. Obama and the First Family served Thanksgiving meals today to Armed Forces Retirement Home residents in Washington, DC.
Dishing out some Thanksgiving meat and gravy, the current President of the United States chatted about the Red Sox and shook hands with each of the retired vets, saying to one, ‘You’re the boss.’
He was joined by FLOTUS, Michelle Obama and the youngest of their two daughters, 15-year-old Sasha.
The Obama family holiday tradition followed the pardoning of the Thanksgiving turkey earlier that day, when Barack was joined by his two nephews.
Whatever your political persuasion, you have to admit this display of thanks for the brave soldiers who fight for their country is touching.
The universal respect for brave military veterans is enough to make any American proud.
