Meryl Streep Turns Heads - How She Keeps The Obamas Close To Her

The Obamas may have moved out of the White House, but they certainly haven't moved out of people's hearts yet. Many fans of the former President, First Lady and daughters still keep them close. One fan is Meryl Streep. The actress showed her love for Mr. and Mrs. Obama with an accessory that sent a buzz through the style blogs. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Ms. Streep is such a fan of Barack, though; he's one of her biggest fans, as he has stated in the past.

Meryl Streep has been nominated for a whopping 20 Academy Awards, and has won three of them. She's arguably one of the greatest actresses of all time, and she's also a big fan of arguably one of the greatest U.S. president's of all time. Streep was recently spotted toting an adorable accessory: a handbag with an image of Barack and Michelle Obama on it.

Streep was spotted on the set of her upcoming film, 'The Papers', while carrying the bag recently. Style blogs immediately began checking around to see where she might have scored the awesome bag, and Obama fans on Twitter fell in love with it. It was tracked down to a vendor on Facebook, but there are many versions of bags with the Obamas on them being sold on eBay and CafePress.

The big print of the former first couple showers them smiling happily with their arms around each other in front of the White House. Just looking at it was enough to make Americans long for the good old days when the country was full of hope and optimism.

Obama awarded Meryl Streep the Presidential Medal of Freedom award in 2014, the highest civilian honor. Streep also worked with Michelle when they teamed up to go to Africa in 2016 to promote the 'Let Girls Learn' initiative. The project was launched in 2015 by Mrs. Obama in order to help address the challenges girls have in getting a quality education in some nations. While on the mission together, the two moms really hit it off.

If Streep loves Obama, the feeling is mutual. Barack himself has expressed his adoration for the actress. "I love Meryl Streep. Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There's nothing they can do about it," Obama said.

Unfortunately, Streep hasn't had as tight a relationship with the sitting president. When she accepted a lifetime achievement award in January, she dedicated her acceptance speech to slamming Donald Trump for being anti-immigrant, and for making fun of a disabled reporter.

Trump shot back in a tweet immediately. "Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes," Trump complained.

It is highly unlikely that Streep is ever going to be toting around a bag with Trump’s face on it—at least not one that would flatter the POTUS.

Social media users quickly fell for the bag.
