WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a shocking turn of events, President Barack Obama delivered his two weeks’ notice earlier today. The POTUS thanked Janet from H.R. after handing her his letter of resignation, and then informed his secretary that he would be taking the afternoon off.
“It’s been a good run, but it’s a new year, and I want to see a new me. I want to travel, and finally have time to perfect my putting game,” stated the President, still wearing a pair of 2017 glasses.
The White House Press Secretary informed the media that the POTUS had grown increasingly tired of his position’s work conditions, citing unreasonable hours and uncooperative coworkers.
“After much consideration, Mr. Obama has concluded that his current position no longer matches his interests or his career goals. He hopes that this resignation might send a message to his employers concerning the job environment, and that future candidates understand what they may be getting into,” continued Press Secretary Jay Carney.
