At this meeting of the outgoing President, Barack Obama, and the incoming President, Donald Trump, both men appear quite similar in their demeanor. Both are sitting alert with their knees apart and hands clasped in pretty much the same manner.
2. But Here In The Rain, We See That One Man Is Not Like The Other
These are much-shared comparison photos that have received comments on social media of people saying how different the two men seem to be just as people, not counting politics.
Trump is walking just a step or two ahead of Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi, yet is not seeming to pay much attention to the fact she isn't covered at all by the umbrella he is holding over himself. Obama, on the other hand, is purposely walking ahead getting soaked in the rain while leaving his aide to hold the umbrella over his wife, Michelle.
3. Soon, Though, Pam Bondi Seems To Catch Up With Trump And His Umbrella
In all fairness, Pam Bondi does eventually get to share Trump's umbrella. Yet the way her feet are positioned, it also appears that this happened because she moved quickly to do so and that he still didn't look back at her. But, in our last slide, Obama was making sure his own wife was protected from the rain and Pam is not Trump's wife, right?
Unlike the Trumps' photo above, we see Michelle deciding where to go on her own and Obama striving to keep her dry from the rain as she does this. Like their other umbrella photos so far, these two couples' photos really show very different behavior from Obama and Trump!
Despite New Jersey governor Chris Christie's strong campaign support, we see Trump again just focused on keeping himself dry.
Yes, this photo montage of Obama and Trump is very simply based on how the two men have consistently responded to others in the rain with an umbrella. It's not meant at all to be a political argument. It's just important to observe what people do, not just what they say as actions do tend to speak louder than words!
