President Barack Obama appears on the latest cover of New York Magazine, overlooking the sprawling courtyard of the White House — a fitting reminder that his time as president is quickly coming to an end with each passing day.
The piece, which you can read here, focuses on a year-by-year account of prominent things that happened during the president's two terms in office.
In reflecting on President Obama's time in office, there were two side-by-side images of him — shot by photographer Dan Winters — that really put into perspective the toll the job of commander-in-chief has had on him.
Naturally, there were online reactions to the president's before and after photos.
Other jokes of Obama's aging went down the obviously ridiculous route, like this hilarious comparison of the president and Redd Foxx of Sanford and Son.
And just like that, the images became meme fodder.
There was even a throwback to the guy who played Satan in The Bible, which aired on the History Channel three years ago. At the time, a lot of people thought he resembled Obama.
But in the end, most of the responses to the president's dramatically changed look were playfully humorous.
It's almost over, Mr. President. It's almost over.
