President Obama winks as he tells a joke about his place of birth during the White House Correspondents Association Dinner on April 28, 2012. 

With the 2016 election now over, people are shifting their focus to President-elect Donald Trump.

But we seem to be forgetting that we’ve still got President Barack Obama in the White House for a couple more months.

Time will tell if our president-elect is going to be as cool as the one we have now, who’s been known for antics like taking selfies with famous scientists and having a beautiful demeanor with children.

For those wondering if Obama will be disappearing into the ether, don’t fret. The president has hinted that he plans to return to public service as a community organizer, focusing on some of the important issues that he took under his wing during eight years in office.
