Watch Obama's Emotional Final Speech In Full
Baby don't go.
After spending a solid few minutes silencing the crowd, Obama commenced his final speech as best/coolest President of the USA by giving thanks to his fellow Americans. He went on to paint a positive picture of all the progress achieved in the country, citing marriage quality, the right to health insurance and job creation as major successes achieved in tandem with the people. He also spoke on the challenges America still faces, prompting openness and empathy as we move into the next four years.
"It's up to all of us to make sure our government can help us meet the many challenges we still face. We have what we need to do so. We have everything we need to meet those challenges. After all, we remain the wealthiest, most powerful and most respected nation on Earth. Our youth, our drive, our diversity and openness, our boundless capacity for risk and reinvention means that the future should be ours. But that potential will only be realised if our democracy works. Only if our politics better reflects the decency of our people," he said.
The whole emotional thing acted as an important call-to-action for American citizens, with crowd chants of "four more years" forcing Obama to pause. If only. Skip to 5:43 to cry-watch the woke speech below.It's been real, Obama.
