Recently, we saw a bearded President Barack Obama and it sent everyone into a frenzy. The new picture that surfaced showed an Obama sporting a new “retirement beard.”
Does Obama’s retirement plans include joining the #BeardGang movement? Social media seems to think so.
One user said, “WHAAAAAAAT?!!?! Obama grew a beard?”
Twitter user Wizdomisms said, “While folks are playing games, Obama’s out here infiltrating & dominating the whole beard gang and looking like “The Most Interesting Man In The World.” #StayThirstyMyFriends.”
While many were infatuated with President Obama’s new look, there were some who knew it wasn’t real.
“I don’t like Obama with the beard he’s been given on Twitter. If he’s going to have a beard, give him a better one,” user Broderick Greer said.
The photo is indeed altered. The picture in question comes from a September 2017 speaking engagement where President Obama spoke at the Goalkeepers conference, organized by Bill and Melinda Gates.
