Barack and Michelle Obama are enjoying their vacation in Hawaii. The former president of the United States was photographed on Thursday on a paddleboard. Obama opted to go shirtless and wore a pair of dark-colored board shorts while he balanced himself on the water, People reported.

Later that day, the former POTUS and FLOTUS stepped out together to enjoy a night out at local restaurant Ya-Ya’s Chophouse and Seafood. The restaurant shared a snap of Obama visiting them on their account on Instagram.

“Our chophouse just got a whole lot more presidential,” the restaurant wrote. “Last night, we were incredibly honored to welcome @barackobama and his family into our restaurant where he dined on Chef Bo’s famous dishes! Mr. President, you will ALWAYS have a seat at our table. #ComeBackSoon.”

In related news, Barack and Michelle were recently named the Most Admired Man and Woman of 2019.  The former FLOTUS beats First Lady Melania Trump who only comes second. According to Gallup, it’s more common for a former first lady to be named the most admired woman than a former president to be named the most admired man. Michelle has been holding onto the recognition for two years now.

On the other hand, Barack shares the honor with President Donald Trump. Both received 18 percent of the votes from the respondents.

Meanwhile, Melania was bashed after her fans claimed that she is smarter than the ex-FLOTUS. In December 2017, a comparison of Michelle and Melania’s IQ and accomplishments were posted on Twitter. Based on the photo, Melania is more intelligent than Michelle.

However, several Twitter users disagreed. According to them, the claim was not true. In fact, Melania plagiarized Michelle’s speech.

“Oh is that why Melanie Trump stole Michelle's speech,  committed plagiarism, because she's smarter than Michelle Obama?” one commented sarcastically.

In related news, according to David Krayden, Ottawa Bureau Chief for the Daily Caller, the Obamas are reportedly making another bid for power. He believed that this time, Michelle will be leading it by joining the presidential race in 2020.
