Before delivering a moving speech in South Africa this morning, Barack Obama let loose in Kenya. The former president casually showed off a few dance moves while visiting a youth center from his half-sister Auma Obama's Sauti Kuu Foundationyesterday. His step-grandmother Sarah, 96, joined in on the fun, People reports.
Yes, it was as precious as you expected.
The former POTUS wasn't the only one caught dancing this week. Former First Lady Michelle Obama was seen busting a move with Tina Knowles at Beyoncé and JAY-Z's On the Run II show in Paris on Sunday. Their 17-year-old daughter Sasha was also spotted in the crowd.
Obama's visit to Kenya marked his first trip to his late father's homeland since his presidency. In addition to dancing, he gave a nostalgic speech about his first time visiting the country when he was 27 years old (nearly 30 years ago) and met President Uhuru Kenyatta, USA Today reports.
The following day, Obama made an appearance in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he gave an address honoring Nelson Mandela, who would've turned 100 today.
His message was poignant, especially in the wake of President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, which came under fire after Trump sided with Russiaregarding interference in the 2016 election.
In his speech, Obama criticized "strongman politics" and "politics of fear, resentment, retrenchment," which he said are rising in the current climate, ABC News reports.
He also pointed out the "utter loss of shame among political leaders when they're caught in a lie and they just double down and lie some more" and emphasized the importance of facts.
