The former President and the former First Lady made an appearance in Washington today at the National Gallery of Art museum. Museum goers were taken by surprise and greeted the couple with cheers and applause.
This is the first time the couple have been seen out since Donald Trump made unsubstantiated claims the Obama administration wire-tapped his Trump Tower phones during the presidential election. President Trump has yet to provide any evidence for his bold claim and President Obama’s intelligence chief has denied any such activity occurred.
A crowd gathered to watch the former first couple leave the gallery and reportedly launched into a round of applause and cheers for them.
NBC reporter, Benjy Sarlin, commented on the throng of people who gathered to watch the pair.1
