Awww. Look at Barry in 1979 all decked out in a lei with his bottle poppin’ best friend and their dates.

With the help of the brunette on his left (Kelli Allman), Time Magazine released two photos of 17-year-old Obama at the dance in honor of the Millions of American teenagers who will go to prom this year.

The guy in the white pants (Greg Orme) was Barack’s basketball teammate at Punahou School in Honolulu and brother from another mother, according to Allman.

“It was a really fun, happy time. We were all cracking up, and everyone was smiling,” 
she explains. “It was pretty typical from there out as far as what happens at prom: the dinner and the dancing and the photos.”

If you’re interested in what internet trolls have to say about these pictures, check out the thread on Gawker.

One commenter hilariously noted that Bama’s date is clearly wearing an “engagement ring” because “someone” needed U.S. citizenship. HAHA. Donald Trump sure has a lot of time on his hands.
