Barack Obama's Surprise Visit To A Baseball Academy Had Students Properly Freaking Out

The Feels

We. Miss. Obama.

It's been close to three years since we last had President Obama in the White House.

And it seems like we don't see him around much anymore, in these days when we could so desperately use a helping, guiding force.


So imagine the joy that the Washington Nationals Youth Academy kids experienced when they saw the 44th President show up to their program.

"It's Barack Obama!" one kid screamed in joy as he did laps around the crowd gathered around the former President, whom we all miss so terribly.

"I think everybody here—if you guys work hard, work hard in school, listen to your coaches—you guys are gonna do great things. So, I'm gonna be on the lookout for ya because I think you're gonna do something important. You guys are gonna make a real difference and we're gonna be really proud of you," Obama told the kids.




The President later took to Twitter to talk about the fun he had and to promote the work of Nats Youth.

Man, we really miss him.





The President and his family still live in Washington DC and keep busy in visiting nearby programs, including McKinley Tech High School, the Langston Terrace community, the Jelleff Boys & Girls Club, Dog Tag Bakery, and Children's National Hospital.





COME BACK.

We're sorry, we'll stop.

But really.

Please?
