As Obama boarded Air Force One on the final day of his “Mission of Friendship” to Jamaica, he took a moment to use his magical powers to cast some irie vibes back onto his gracious hosts.

Naturally, the Twitter hate poured in, but some of it was actually pretty funny.
@WhiteHouse taste the rainbow
