Ummm… Drake what were you thinking?
President Barack Obama spoke to the nation Tuesday evening for the last time as the President of the United States. Many took to social media to reflect on President Obama’s eight years, posting short quotes from his speech in Chicago, memes and more. Joining in over the eventful evening, Canadian rapper Drake had a bizarre message to share.
Shortly after Obama’s speech, Drake posted a photo on Instagram with a thank you message to Obama. “As a Canadian that calls America home for part of the year I will always carry your words and the memory of your time in office with me as inspiration. Big up yaself O.” While the message was oddly confusing, the photo Drake included with the post was more puzzling and downright odd. Check it out below.
As is usual per Drake, his fans had a field day with the post, quickly taking to Twitter and other social media outlets to mock and downright laugh at the tribute.
Drake picture of himself as Obama is so disrespectful. He feeling himself too much

Surprisingly, this is not the first time Drake has referenced this particular meme. Last year, when he was on Saturday Night Live, Drake opened the show with a song that was about the memes he has been featured in. This particular Obama mashup was surprisingly one of the memes included. As Drake sang, “How can I explain to my mama/When you got my beard on Obama?”
