Barack Obama‘s post-presidency global tour finally took him to our neighbor up north, where last night he sat down for dinner with Canadian prime minister and viral hits factory Justin Trudeau. Now, these two are no strangers to Twitter’s adoration of them, so Trudeau must have known that the second he dropped this shot of him and Obama casually enjoying an evening meal in Montreal, the like button was gonna be smashed.
Again and again and again. Because… look at this.
As was pointed out, they knew what was up. They knew.
But they maybe had no idea just how much the internet would go for it.

One day, all of this will be over and Trudeau, the Obamas & Macron can travel the world doing good deeds and solving crimes. https://t.co/DKbIHPLyMA— William K. Wolfrum (@Wolfrum) June 7, 2017

As with anything on Twitter these days, some pointed out that it could be construed as shade toward the current president.
Let's be honest, this picture is gonna drive Trump crazy. https://t.co/7Lhuq19QV8— Shaun Haney (@shaunhaney) June 7, 2017
President Trump has not tweeted about date night—yet. But one Twitter user noted it appeared he was there.
