We Need To Talk About This Photo Of Barack And Michelle Obama

In the most respectful way possible, of course.

Posted on

Yesterday, Essence magazine revealed its October cover featuring President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, and it's giving us all the feels.

Partly because it's probably their last cover in the White House, and partly because they're just so freaking beautiful. They continue to give us all the goals. Every single one.

Partly because it's probably their last cover in the White House, and partly because they're just so freaking beautiful. They continue to give us all the goals. Every single one.

The cover is undoubtedly gorgeous, but this photo right here from the inside spread has gone viral for a couple of obvious reasons.

First, it's peak relationship goals in every way.

It oozes so much black love it'll make you cry.

So much so we feel targeted. It's not fair TBH.

The photo also presented this very real dilemma.

But it didn't take long for the internet to throw caution to the wind and say what needed to be said.

I mean, folks got really, really honest.

The photo also inspired fan fiction.

But most importantly, it made us celebrate FLOTUS for not being afraid to celebrate her curves.

Now all we can do is wait for the inevitable response.

And hope we can continue to see these two love on each other until the end of time.
