The U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team took their talents to the White House on Thursday and totally geeked out with POTUS and FLOTUS, as one does when there are only but a few months left of our time with them amidst the inferno of this election cycle.

Four-fifths of the Final Five—Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian—were at the White House as part of an Olympian ceremony (the Obamas’ final one), which also included Michael Phelps and Paralympian athletes from the Rio Olympics.

Gabby Douglas was out recovering from wisdom tooth removal, and People reports that national liar Ryan Lochte was “banned” from attending. Looks like he sorely missed out.

President Obama bigged up the Olympians in a speech, stating, “One of the reasons our country is so proud of this year’s Team USA is 2016 belonged to America’s women Olympians.”

He also attempted a split with satisfactory effort but poor, ultimately disappointing form.

“I want you to know that I was going to do, like, a floor routine on the way out with Simone,” he said. “But we decided it was a little too crowded.”

Michelle Obama used the op to point out that POTUS “can’t touch his toes,” which is tragic for a healthy sitting president.

Adorbs. Obama is in his element during these types of meetings. Can’t you picture this kind of activity in a Trump White House? Him heckling them that they’ve gotten fat since the Olympics.
