Remember years ago when Barack Obama was still president of the United States? Oh wait, that was only a few months ago? It really feels like years.
The former president of the United States has wrapped up his well-deserved vacation with wife Michelle Obama and is back to doing what he does best; cleaning up political blunders and giving us hope for the future.
This week, Obama was in Montréal to give a speech to 6,000 people at the Montreal Board of Trade. Following his speaking engagement, Obama met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for dinner. The two non-terrifying political heavyweights grabbed a casual bite to eat at the Liverpool House in the St. Henri neighborhood and enjoyed having the restaurant all to themselves. Well, all to themselves plus a few chefs and about 200 members of the RCMP and Secret Service.
A frequent customer of Liverpool House, Trudeau advised Obama to let owner David McMillan pick the menu, with the restaurateur serving the men oysters, shrimp, halibut, steak, lobster spaghetti and strawberry shortcake.
Following the meal, Prime Minister Trudeau posted a picture of the pair looking relax in the restaurant.

The only thing that could make this cooler is if @EmmanuelMacron walked out of kitchen carrying 3 beers!

We are loving the friendship between Trudeau and Obama and we definitely think there’s room for more members.
