Obama Joins Facebook… Read His First Post And Watch The NARCISSISTIC Video He Made

President Obama is now on Facebook: “Hello, Facebook!  I finally got my very own page,” Obama posted.  “I hope you’ll think of this as a place where we can have real conversations about the most important issues facing our country – a place where you can hear directly from me, and share your own thoughts and stories.”

WASHINGTON — President Obama is now on Facebook. But no, you can’t be his “friend.”

The White House launched the POTUS Facebook page Monday with a video showing Obama giving a tour of his backyard — which, as he points out, is also a national park.

“Hello, Facebook! I finally got my very own page,” Obama posted. “I hope you’ll think of this as a place where we can have real conversations about the most important issues facing our country – a place where you can hear directly from me, and share your own thoughts and stories.”

Unlike a personal profile, a page allows public figures to post updates without a friend-to-friend relationship. Obama will no doubt use the page as an extension of his press office, but he also promised, “You can expect some just-for-fun stuff, too.

On his backyard tour, for example, Obama talked about the fox, the hawk and the squirrels that inhabit the south lawn of the White House — but then shifted gears to make a statement about climate change.

The Facebook page follows Obama’s decision to join Twitter earlier this year. White House officials have said his tweets are written in the president’s voice — but not necessarily by the president himself.

“Hello, Facebook! I finally got my very own page. I hope you’ll think of this as a place where we can have real conversations about the most important issues facing our country – a place where you can hear directly from me, and share your own thoughts and stories. (You can expect some just-for-fun stuff, too.) I’m kicking it off by inviting you to take a walk with me in my backyard – something I try to do at the end of the day before I head in for dinner. I say this often, but that’s because it’s always at the front of my mind: We’ve got to preserve this beautiful planet of ours for our kids and grand-kids. And that means taking serious steps to address climate change once and for all. Now, we’ve made a lot of progress to cut carbon pollution here at home, and we’re leading the world to take action as well. But we’ve got to do more. In a few weeks, I’m heading to Paris to meet with world leaders about a global agreement to meet this challenge.I hope you’ll join me in speaking out on climate change and educating your friends about why this issue is so important. At a time when nearly three in four adults online use Facebook, this feels like a great place to do it. Share your thoughts in the comments, and pass this message on to folks you think need to see it.If we’re all in this together, I’m confident we can solve this and do right by future generations.”
