When a head of state travels abroad, one of their ambassadorial duties is to partake in their host country’s traditions. So this week, when he landed in Ireland as part of a week-long UK tour, you might say President Obama hit the jackpot. Between boring speeches to parliament and lame-o royal dinners, Obama and his lady found time to slug back some frothy pints of Guinness, and the photographic evidence is nothing short of inspiring.
There he is, Leader of the Free World, partaking in my favorite Sunday afternoon ritual. Feels good when it first hits the lips, eh Barack? I’m so inspired that I’ve decided to cull the archives and put together a little collection of all those times Barack Obama sucked some back some brew in front of a camera. Bottoms up!
