As Donald Trump has proven a treacherous and pathetic excuse for an executive office occupant, our president was having a good time in Kenya.
Obama visited Kenya for the first time since leaving office to help his half-sister open a sports and training center for her organization, Sauti Kuu, according to The Associated Press.
During the opening ceremony, Obama was seen dancing and playing basketball. We’re not sure what dance it was, but he was gettin’ down!

He also met with Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta and praised him for working with his opposition for the betterment of Kenya.
While Obama was promoting diplomacy, Trump stood next to Russian President Vladimir Putin and was a full-blown sellout to the part of the country that held any semblance of faith in him. The pair hosted a press conference where Putin denied Russian involvement in the 2016 election, and Trump stood by him.
"I have great confidence in my intelligence people. But I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today," Trump said. "Dan Coats [the director of national intelligence] came to me and some others, they said they think it's Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it's not Russia. I will say this: I don't see any reason why it would be."
The move has drawn swift criticism, even from other Republicans like Paul Ryan and John McCain.
Despite the backlash, Trump reaffirmed his views on his Twitter page:
As I said today and many times before, “I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.” However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we cannot exclusively focus on the past – as the world’s two largest nuclear powers, we must get along! #HELSINKI2018
