Barack Obama Made This Touching Gesture at the Inauguration That Has People Swooning
We already knew that Barack and Michelle Obama were basically the cutest — anyone with eyes to glimpse these 12 heartwarming moments can see that — but they just may have had their sweetest moment of all while standing together at this morning’s Presidential inauguration.
In the midst of speech scandals, unbelievable fashion moments and a somewhat thinner-than-expected crowd, Barack made the tiniest of gestures toward his wife of 24 years, but it was enough to have those that caught it going gaga.

With one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it move, Obama lifts his wife’s hand to his mouth for a reassuring hand kiss in the midst of all the chaos. Can we get a closer look at that!?

Okayyyy. Yep. Officially wrecks!
Apparently, we weren’t the only ones…
No I'm not crying as Barack Obama kisses Michelle's hand and leaves the White House for the last time….. 😅😭😭😭

Up next for these two lovebirds? A well deserved vacay!
Hi everybody! Back to the original handle. Is this thing still on? Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we’ll get back to work.

We can only imagine the adorable moments these two will share on their time off in Palm Springs — Maybe, if they’re lucky, they’ll even let us in on a few via social media. (We’ll be watching!)
Bon voyage, guys. Bon voyage.
Do you think Barack and Michelle are the cutest couple in politics? Tells us over @BritandCo!
