It’s no secret that being the President of the United States is no easy task. The weight of this world is literally on your shoulders.
One wrong move as president can be detrimental to not only Washington and the United States, but the rest of the world.
The images below reveal what happens to individuals who have served as POTUS from day one in office, down to their very last day.
It’s quite a vast difference. Some of the ex-presidents look young, vivacious, and plump in the early stages of their presidency versus the last.
By the end, they’re looking a lot thinner, grayer, tired, and not as enthusiastic.
While it’s fascinating to see how each of our president’s faces have changed throughout their stressful term(s), it’s also a great reminder of their sacrifice and willingness to serve.
