If you’re not ready to say goodbye to President Barack Obama, you’re not alone.
The President gave an intimate (and tear-jerking) speech at tonight’s DNC. POTUS addressed the crowd directly, calling us “you” and telling us how much he loves us in that fatherly way many of us have come to love. He touched on his many accomplishments thus far, including Obamacare and legalizing gay marriage, declaring our country “stronger and more prosperous than it was when we started.”
POTUS also listed Hillary Clinton’s qualifications, and went so far as to say she’s more qualified than both he and her husband Bill are. POTUS also threw in a couple digs at Donald Trump, keeping with tonight’s theme of epic Trump shade.
“Does anyone really believe that a guy who’s spent his 70 years on this Earth showing no regard for working people is suddenly going to be your champion, your voice?” Obama asked the crowd. The mere mention of Trump’s name by Obama elicited “boo’s” from DNC-goers, to which Obama offered the A+ reply of, “Don’t boo. Vote.”
Obama’s strength, charisma and resilience were as evident as ever during his speech, as was the feeling that so many aren’t ready to let him go. No need to fight back the tears, people. We’re already on box number two of tissues over here.
