Barack Obama Flips Cap Backwards After Realising He's No Longer President
I wonder what it's like being Barack Obama right now. Leaving the White House and watching all of the shit hit the roof. Must be a huge ego boost. I bet he's currently out there, zipping around Cuba on a moped, wearing a chicken suit, for no other reason that he can and that if anything bad happened, it wouldn't look half as bad as anything his political successors are made out to be doing.
Unfortunately, the former president isn't doing that. He is on a holiday of some sorts, though, but in the British Virgin Islands with wife Michelle.
Hanging out on a private piece of land surrounded by sea, you'd think Obama wouldn't need to go to great lengths to avoid recognition from overzealous locals or visitors, but in his own casual way, he has.
Most go for the Viking-bearded, wide-rim glasses look. Obama's style is more subtle and nuanced. Shorts, flip-flops and a baseball cap... backwards.
Twitter's had a bit of fun with the pictures.

It's not all private-island fun and games, though. Obama recently spoke out against President Trump's so-called 'Muslim ban'.
A spokesman wrote: "President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country. In his final official speech as president, he spoke about the important role of citizen and how all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy - not just during an election but every day."
