    Very powerful moment. Imagine all the intel he's received over his 8 years, leaders he's met and conflicts he's had to broker. In one moment the entire world is just lifted off his shoulders... and suddenly none of it is his problem.

      @duanecrump crump Get some meds for whatever the hell was wrong with you yet? By the way, genius; Biden WAS inaugurated. How many thousands of other things have you been wrong about in the last week/month/year? Typical mentality of one of the lemmings that would follow and amoral racist animal who was selling his country out to the Russians. There's a reason Trump polls so well with the uneducated.

      To me to have had two terms, you are a great president and even with all the opposition that you had you did the best, the very best that you could. I thank you for your love of the country, your humor your finesse and for your wife the same. We've never had to my knowledge a people's president and first lady who are down to earth and relax and didn't act snobbish. I wish you could have had a third term, God bless you your wife and children and may the Lord keep you always.

  • Ikaika Mauricio-Esteban

    Just watching this made me think of how long obama has been in my life wich is pretty much more than half of it. I still cant believe at this moment his term of being president was pretty much over and now hes gonna rarely be on social media for the rest of our lives. Even tho he didnt make the best choices or do stuff he was suppose to i believe he loved his country and thats all that matters. I wish the best for him and his family in their new lives

    I never expected to get emotional watching him leave but ... I kinda did. And, yes, I would have voted for him a 3rd time if that was possible! Good luck to Trump. The job will teach him to be a better man, I am sure of it!
