Obama Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Shortly after President Trump took office, an old veteran approached the White House from the park across Pennsylvania Ave. where he’d been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the US Marine standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The marine looked at the vet and said, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here.” The old vet said, “Okay,” and walked away.

The following day, the same vet approached the White House and said to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The marine again told the vet, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here.” The vet thanked him and, again, just walked away.

The third day, the same vet approached the White House and spoke to the very same Marine saying, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the vet and said, “Sir, this is the third day in a row that you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama and I’ve already told you that Mr. Obama is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?”

The old vet looked at the Marine and said, “Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.”

The marine snapped to attention, saluted and said, “See you tomorrow, Sir!”
