A moving truck was spotted outside the White House, and many Americans are jumping for joy.
A photo of the moving truck was posted on Twitter by CNN reporter Michelle Kosinski. The truck was parked on West Executive Ave. between the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and the White House.
“People just assume that it’s in front of the White House. It isn’t,” Kosinski added.
President Obama and outgoing First Lady Michelle Obama will vacate the White House on January 20, when Donald Trump will be sworn in as the nation’s 45th president.
But before they leave, the Obamas will host one more lavish party for their close friends and donors on the taxpayers’ dime, natch.
It's that time… pic.twitter.com/pRFqPGMMvU

Twitter reacted to the moving truck with characteristic hilarity and snark.
One Twitter user joked that the leftist New York Times will twist the Obamas’ move-out to fit their anti-Trump narrative.

Others wondered if the Obamas will steal anything from the White House the way Hillary Clinton reportedly did.
How many items will this outgoing Democrat will steal from the White House?
eg like the Clintons did.

One Twitter user has never been so excited about PMS (presidential moving service).

Other Twitter users broke out into song (or at least the equivalent, in 140 characters or less).

Others just (virtually) danced with joy and exploded with excitement.

Another astute Twitter user observed that the CNN reporter who posted the news probably wasn’t too happy with the responses her tweet was getting.
@MKosinskiCNN I bet Michelle is SHOCKED so many are giddy to see the Obama's leave. She and the rest of the communists at CNN are in tears.
