President Obama met President-Elect Trump at the White House today, and the encounter culminated in a, shall we say, awkward photocall between the President and his successor.
Twitter liberals took a break from whining about the result of the election to poke fun at their future President:

Pretty incredible that Obama is 55 and has lots of gray hair while Trump is 70 and is still a natural blonde pic.twitter.com/yc2kIOTIjE

More seriously, the White House Press Secretary repeated that Barack Obama thought Trump was unfit for office, putting Trump in the position of being more gracious than Obama. Obama also refused to take any questions. Trump, on the other hand; said that Obama was ‘a very good man’:

Trump, on the other hand, was generous and even kind as he praised the President.

One White House staffer went viral as she broke down in public. Turns out it’s not just students who are the Trump crybabies.

Some people just can’t seem to accept that in politics, a win is a win.
