Back when meeting our leader made you love us more.

Queen Elizabeth has reportedly had a “soft spot for Americans” ever since meeting former President Barack Obama in 2009.
A former employee told royal author Tom Quinn that Her Majesty has even requested Obama to come back to the UK for a visit, even though he is no longer president.
“The Queen has a soft spot for Americans after meeting Barack Obama who she completely fell in love with – so much so that she has frequently asked her courtiers if they could arrange for him to come to Britain now he is no longer president,” the former employee said in the new book, “Kensington Palace: An Intimate Memoir from Queen Mary to Meghan Markle.”
The Queen usually hosts world leaders and presidents for official state visits to the UK, however, it would be unusual for Her Majesty to host a former president no longer in office.
And yet somehow for the Obamas, I think the Queen might make an exception.
The article goes on to say that Queen Elizabeth became very close to Michelle Obama over the years and that their relationship was very special to her.
Of course, I would love to see the Obamas visit with the Queen again, once this pandemic thing is behind us.
Not only would it be very inspirational for both countries, but it would drive Trump out of his freaking mind.
