Barack Obama

Watch Barack Obama

  • 1 Season

Barack Obama is the 44th president of the United States of America. His landmark first term inducted him as the first African American president in the history of the country and his controversial politics made the reelection four years later a monumental and historical feat. His television appearances have included professional stints as well as hosting conferences, presenting awards, and even poking fun of his own political agenda and life in the White House. Most recently he visited the site of D-Day invasion and met with several global political leaders to discuss historical events and to reflect on the future of the planet. The 70th anniversary commemoration of the D-Day events were held in Sword Beach, Ouistreham but the tranquil beaches hardly resemble the turmoil of the invasions at Normandy from a generation ago. Leaders were able to mingle and reflect on the destruction and struggle to rebuild after World War II and more recent skirmishes. Barack Obama was seen laughing with Queen Maxima of the Netherlands throughout the festivities. The press from multiple media sources covered the event and took plenty of photos of world leaders in a relaxed and reflective state.
