During former President Barack Obama’s annual visit to Hawaii to celebrate the holidays, a women’s resistance group called the Windward ReSisters decided to welcome him back to his native state by singing Christmas carols outside of the Paul Mitchell estate, where the Obamas were staying (video below).
To their surprise, Obama came outside and greeted the carolers, even giving one of the women a hug.
“We got our group together on Saturday and went with our pussy hats and Santa hats and proceeded to Christmas carol in front of the estate,” one of the group members, Darlene Mandel, said.
“After about 10 minutes, he came out with three Secret Service agents and I was ready with my trusty camera,” Mandel said. “He was joking because my girlfriend spilled champagne on him. It was short and sweet and made our Christmas.”
Even Obama joined in on the fun when he realized the women had been drinking.
“No wonder you’re singing so happy; I didn’t realize there was champagne to go with it!” he said. “I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas.”
He even joined them in singing several bars of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” as he headed back into the estate.
While Trump spouts incessantly about saving Christmas in America, Obama once again acted with quiet grace and dignity– per usual.
On behalf of the Obama family, Merry Christmas! We wish you joy and peace this holiday season. pic.twitter.com/CNFUZrhrBj
