Barack Obama Has Aged A Lot During His Presidency, But So Has Everything You Dolts
Well would you look at that. Despite the fact that Obama’s suits and podiums have hardly changed at all, his hair and face sure have! As many fine folks before me have already stated, “This is what being the President of the United States will do to ya.”
Um, sure. I guess. Or it could just be that more than seven years have passed between the two photos and President Obama just doesn’t give a shit about coloring his gray hair anymore. Either way, just to prove a point, here are several other notable people and things that have aged during Obama’s time in office.
In early 2009 around the time Obama was sworn in, the NBA’s reigning MVP was just a baby-faced basketball player at Davidson College. Now, he’s a baby-faced, soon-to-be two-time MVP of the Golden State Warriors who also happens to have some gross chin hair, as well.

On the left you have a shirtless shot from a 2008 episode titled “The Gang Solves the Gas Crisis” in which Charlie, Mac and Dennis look very young and immature. On the right you have a much more sophisticated and grown-up shot of Charlie, Mac and Dennis from a 2016 episode titled “Dee Made a Smut Film.” Talk about aging with class and dignity.

“Iron Man” came out in 2008, the same year that Obama was elected to office. RDJ looked pretty young back then, but in that photo on the right from last year’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” I think I see a little gray in that ridiculous goatee. Looks like playing Tony Stark for eight years can really take its toll, too.
Much like Barry Bonds, Batman seems to get much larger and more muscular with age, as you can clearly tell in this side-by-side comparison of The Dark Knight from the 2008 film of the same name and The Dark Knight in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which came out last week.
That’s a 17-year-old Miley Cyrus on the left at the Teen Choice Awards, looking lovely and wearing a cross necklace. And that’s a 23-year-old Miley on the right in the bathtub looking disheveled and holding a blunt between her fingers. Smdh. #growingpains
Twitter recently turned 10, and just look at how much their logo has aged while Obama has been the POTUS. Wow.
Not only is that dog on the right all grown up and looks like a completely different dog than the puppy on the left, but he’s actually aged seven times more than the rest of us in dog years. How’s that for perspective.
Look at that hair! And that necklace! That non-puffy face and those sleeveless arms! What has become of me?!
So anyways, there you have it. We’ve all aged a lot during the Obama presidency. Over the course of eight years things change, become weathered and often diminish in quality. Well, everything except…
That’s a fresh McNuggets Happy Meal on the left, and the same one on the right after six years. I think we’ve discovered the secret to staying young forever — inject ourselves with whatever chemicals McDonald’s uses for their food. The end.
