I don’t let myself think of Barack Obama too much these days, because if I think about him, I’ll start to cry. Remember what it was like to have a decent, intelligent president? Remember how they treated him? *sob* Anyway, Obama is enjoying his retirement. He’s traveling, playing golf, writing, working on TV projects and more. He’s also got time to attend Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Game 2 went down in Toronto last night, and Canadians went f–king crazy for him, cheering and screaming and shouting “MVP! MVP!”

Yet another rock-star reception for Barack Obama. People said he got a bigger reception than Toronto’s hometown fave, Kawhi Leonard. And probably a bigger reception than Steph Curry. Apparently, Obama sat with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. Obama reportedly has something to do with the NBA’s plans to launch a Basketball Africa League. Plus, Obama always hosted NBA players when he was in the White House – he played basketball to relax, and he’s always been known as a huge basketball fan.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump went to another country and he was greeted by massive protests and plans to re-launch a gigantic fat baby blimp. Weird how different the reactions are huh?
