Meryl Streep Misses The Obamas So Much, She Has A Purse With Their Faces On It

"Find you someone that shows you off exactly how Meryl Streep shows off Michelle & Barack Obama."

While the Obamas have the time of their lives globetrotting with their family and famous friends, the rest of us have no choice but to daydream about the glory days of an Obama White House.

Meryl Streep, who is a friend of the Obamas, found a sweet way to keep Michelle and Barack close to her heart.

While filming the movie “The Papers” in New York City on Tuesday, Streep was spotted carrying a purse with the president and former first lady’s face on it. It’s unclear if the bag is a prop for the movie, or if it’s something Streep owns.

Either way, everyone wants one now (to view the photos, check out E!).

We’re sure the Obamas will be flattered by the bag, as Barack has professed his love for the actress before.

“I love Meryl Streep,” the president said in 2014, while presenting the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Streep. “Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There’s nothing they can do about it.”

Streep and Michelle are also good friends. In 2016, the two traveled to Marrakech, Morocco together as part of the first lady’s “Let Girls Learn” program.

This isn’t the first time Streep has sported patriotic garb ― remember that iconic flag dress she wore to support Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention?
