While America is still trying to cope with the fact that Donald Trump is now in control of all of our nuclear codes, former president Barack Obama seems to be carefree. After jet-setting to his family vacation in Palm Springs following the inauguration, Obama was spotted Saturday (Jan. 21) on a golf course, playing a round of 18 holes.
In video obtained by TMZ, the new retiree was seen on a private course in Rancho Mirage with a few buddies and his secret service detail. And as you can tell, all that time sitting behind his desk in the Oval Office made him a little rusty. But he’ll definitely have more time to practice.
Hi everybody! Back to the original handle. Is this thing still on? Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we’ll get back to work.

Meanwhile in Washington, a Women’s March erupted in protest of Trump. Hundreds of thousands of women, men, and children marched from the Lincoln Memorial to the White House, in order to take a stand for women’s rights, the LGBTQ community, religious practices, and POCs.
Obama may not be president anymore, but he isn’t completely ditching Washington. The politician took to Twitter after the Inauguration on Jan. 20, to update supporters on his post-White house plans. Hi everybody,” he tweeted from his “original handle.” “Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we’ll get back to work.” Obama also announced in a press conference ahead of stepping down, that he and Michelle Obama would be staying in DC while their youngest daughter Sasha finished up high school. So with Obama still in the nation’s capital, not all hope is lost.
