Photo Proves This Is Obama’s Most Unrestrained Fan
Obama dined at a barbecue restaurant with four Kansas City residents who had written him letters about their lives. Before sitting down with them, he had a moment with Dale Hopkins, a patron at the restaurant and possibly Obama’s most intense supporter.
A pool report wrote up their moment together:
A woman with blonde hair and glasses rose to shake his hand from another table.
“He’s so handsome, oh my God!” she exclaimed.
“I’m paying for her food,” he said after hugging her.
“You’re so handsome,” she continued. “The First Lady is so lucky.”
She became choked up as she shook his hand a final time…
White House photographer Pete Souza tweeted a photo, showing Hopkins not so much hugging Obama as she is clenching his forearm with a vice grip:
