I Love the 80s

Turns out our POTUS wasn’t always the picture of cool he is today.  No, turns out that when he was a freshman, he still sported some baby fat, featured a demi-fro (we pray that look will come back), and thought cigarettes were cool. 

Even in 1980, though, Barry caught the ladies’ eyes.  While a freshman at Occidental College (before transferring to Columbia), classmate Lisa Jack asked if she could take a few photos of him for her portfolio.  Ever the public servant, Obama agreed.  Thankfully for POTUS’ adoring fans, Ms. Jack was able to find the old roll of film in her basement.
