Many presidents ride off into the sunset to play golf and collect million dollar checks for speaking engagements. Obama kicked off his year by vacationing and hanging out with friends. Among his closest buddies is Prince Harry. Here they are laughing it up on day seven of the Invictus Games in Toronto, Ontario. A recent controversy has broken out after it was revealed that Prince Harry allegedly wants to invite Barack and Michelle Obama to his wedding but not President Trump.
