“Missing” posters are popping up in cities all over the United States and the world for former President Barack Obama.
The posters read, “Have you seen this man?” above a picture of America’s 44th president. It also offers a description of the missing president, “Age: 55, Weight: 175 LBS, Height: 6’ 1 ¼”, Black Hair, Brown Eyes.”
At the bottom of the sign are listings for an Instagram page and a website as well as the hashtag #MISSINGOBAMA.
On the Instagram page, people are adding pictures of posters they’ve found in various locations.

So, what is this all about?
According to MissingObama.org, they’ve started posting these “missing” posters not because Obama is physically missing, but rather, because they “miss” Obama.
“The role he played as president for eight years is also ‘missing.’ Trump is severely unqualified to act as the President and Commander in Chief of the United States of America,” the description reads. “This poster also represents the importance of freedom of expression. It encourages us to be vocal and engage in political conversation. The election is over, but democracy isn’t. Speaking up can mean anything, from something as simple as liking a post to something more interactive like organizing a protest. Expression is vital on every level.”
