We had to laugh when we saw all the social media buzz about former President Barack Obama vacationing wearing slippers and a backward hat!
Seriously? First off, those aren’t flip-flops, everyone in the Islands knows they are slippers. And Obama was born and raised here in the Islands, so he knows to wear a hat when he’s outside.
Here are some of our favorite reactions from the world of social media:

Politics aside - there's maybe one person on the planet who looks cooler than Obama does in a backwards hat and that's Ken Griffey Jr.— Derek (@dee_allinder) February 1, 2017
