STAY COOL, BARRY
Obama loooooooves frozen treats, as you’ll see. Here, witness his unbridled glee at chowing down on shaved ice with Malia in Hawaii in December, 2010.
TURKEY PARDONING GRIN
Actually, Abe, the 42-lb. turkey Obama “pardoned” on Nov. 25, 2015, should be the one smiling here, but he’s probably more relieved than thrilled.
Ellen DeGeneres might have made history with her Oscar selfie at the 2014 Academy Awards, but it was missing one thing. Well, two things, actually: The President of the United States and his resplendent smile.
Obama’s White House Correspondents Association dinner remarks are always great, and if you’re not making yourself laugh, what’s the point of making jokes?
ICE CREAM AND SMALL BUSINESS SMILE
Again, frozen treats make Obama really happy. So do his daughters. And when you combine those with helping out a small business, as he did on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28, 2015 in D.C., well, it’s all gravy.
Nothing like a podium and the opportunity to present the 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom to put a smile on a guy’s face.
HONORARY DEGREE GRIN
Obama also loves honorary degrees, giving commencement speeches and momentous anniversaries. (In that order.) So being awarded an honorary degree at Rutgers University’s 250th anniversary and giving the commencement speech, all in the same day? No wonder he’s happy.
That Pope Francis. What a card. Here, he’s just delivered the punchline to his favorite “A bishop walks into a sacristy” joke. It’s a real side-splitter.
If you’re not smiling while you’re in a car with Jerry Seinfeld, somebody‘s doing something wrong.
NORTH AMERICAN BROS GRIN
Taking a selfie with Canada’s extraordinarily photogenic Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would give anyone a reason to smile!
“55 years young and that smile still gets me every single day,” First Lady Michelle Obama captioned this photo on her Instagram. Us too, Michelle. Us too.
