After weeks of pictures of President Obama vacationing, in what seemed like a completely different planet then the scary one we have started to become accustomed to, #44 was spotted leaving a New York City Starbucks carrying a cup of coffee. You would think that New Yorkers would be used to star sightings living in Manhattan but the crowd lost it when Obama left the shop.
New York City was one of the biggest supporting areas for President Obama and Hillary Clinton, and also happens to be where that current First Lady person lives. Obama was also spotted at a restaurant in SOHO with his daughter Malia a few days earlier but no one really knows why he is currently in the city.
Crowds of people gathered as the former President walked swiftly smiling and waving at the crowd before jumping into a blacked out SUV and moving on his way. Immediately photos, comments, and videos began flooding Twitter.

Even though President Obama no longer holds any political office, I think everyone feels a tiny bit better having him back home. I know I breathed a small sigh of relief. We miss you!
