Hashtag ‘Bring Back Obama’ Is Breaking The Internet. Trump Silent
Remember when the White House accidentally shared a ‘We Miss Obama’ sign a kid wrote during the Easter Egg Roll? Well, that was an understatement.
Back in April, President Trump and first lady Melania Trump hosted their first White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn. At the event, children were invited to help decorate a large mural on the lawn. However, amid all of the scribbles and doodle was something even more striking.

In the photo, wedged between the butterflies and drawings of hearts and flowers was a string of words scribbled earlier: “We miss Obama.”
Some people on Twitter agreed with the sentiment presumably written by a child at the event.
My daughter said this to me the other day with a big sigh: I miss Obama, dont you mum? (she's 7 & British) #theyknow

I am Canadian and I really miss President Obama too! ☹️
Can't wait for Trump to be impeached.

@amjross My 4yo niece calls Trump "Icky Presy-dent" and says "Ewww" to his image. (I admit her aunt & daddy influenced her!)

That's why it's important to listen to your children.

But kids are not the only ones missing Obama. Now, amidst the controversies surrounding the Trump’s administration, the hashtag “Bring Back Obama” started to trend on Twitter around 6:14 a.m. EDT on Wednesday.
The hashtag was started by Michael Skolnik, who called for people to post their favorite moments of former President Barack Obama
I really miss Barack Obama as our President.

There was no apparent reason for the hashtag to trend except the fact that people miss steady leadership and sanity in the White House.
Members of Trump’s administration seem to become increasingly embroiled with each passing day in allegations of colluding with Russians and influencing the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. The latest in the string of allegation exposed the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., who reportedly met a Russian lawyer in June 2016, when the election process was going on.
This seems to have triggered a nostalgia for the administration under Obama, which was relatively free from controversies.
Regardless, the fact that “#BringBackObama” is trending on the first spot on Twitter does imply that people of the country still love their former POTUS, months after him having left the Oval Office.
