Obama Says He Could Have Won 2016 Election, Trump Reacts

President Barack Obama has said in a new interview that he thinks he would have won the 2016 election if he was allowed to run for a third term in office.

The President of the United States says that his vision of “hope and change” still is true eight years after he was elected for his first term.

“I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama said on CNN’s The Axe Files podcast.

“I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one,” he added.

Breakout Waikiki, one of the escape room sites in Hawaii, tweeted at Obama one year ago inviting him to try the game and he showed up unannounced after booking the room under another name.

“To be totally honest, we didn’t know that they were coming. It was 100% unexpected. They booked under a different name,” the company’s manager told BuzzFeed News. “An hour earlier, Secret Service showed up.”

If you don’t know what an Escape Room is, you have a set amount of time, usually 60 minutes, to figure out the clues and solve the riddles inside the room to get the key to exit.

Obamas Send Final Christmas Message from the White House

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have given their final Christmas address to the nation from the White House and it’s giving us all the feels.

The nation’s first couple opened up about the idea of the holiday and how it connects to other religions.

“The idea that we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper. That we should treat others as we would want to be treated. And that we care for the sick… feed the hungry… and welcome the stranger… no matter where they come from, or how they practice their faith,” Michelle said.

“Those are values that help guide not just my family’s Christian faith, but that of Jewish Americans, and Muslim Americans; nonbelievers and Americans of all backgrounds. And no one better embodies that spirit of service than the men and women who wear our country’s uniform and their families,” Barack added.
