As I maintain saying, I’ve been avoiding the farewell stuff from President Barack Obama. It’s simply too unhappy. I mentioned so many occasions final yr that we would have liked to soak in each final drop of the Obamas’ decency, kindness and coolness, however when it got here right down to the road… saying goodbye to them goes to be traumatic for me, and for a lot of different individuals. For this good, calm, considerate man to must switch energy to an orange lunatic is simply an excessive amount of. However I fell into the entice. I began watching Obama’s final press convention on Wednesday and Jesus Christ, you guys. How are we going to do that? All the press convention is on YouTube, clearly, however simply try this clip of Obama speaking about his daughters and their response to Emperor Child Fists’ win.

He says, relating to Sasha and Malia’s response:
“They had been upset. They paid consideration to what their mother mentioned in the course of the marketing campaign and believed it as a result of it’s in keeping with what we’ve tried to show them in our family, what I’ve tried to mannequin as a father with their mother and what we’ve requested them to count on from future boyfriends or spouses.”
The president went on to say that, as dad and mom, he and the primary girl have additionally taught their women resilience and hope — “and that the one factor that’s the finish of the world is the tip of the world.”
“They don’t mope,” he added. “What makes me proudest about them is that in addition they don’t get cynical. They haven’t assumed that, as a result of their facet didn’t win or as a result of a few of the values they care about don’t appear as if they had been vindicated, that in some way robotically, America had in some way rejected them or rejected their values.”
“The one factor that’s the finish of the world is the tip of the world.” Yeah however that’s what it seems like. Anyway… Obama actually was the Dad-in-Chief. He cherished to embarrass his women with dad jokes and pa denims and turkey-pardons. However you possibly can inform Sasha and Malia adore their dad and mom too. And now we now have Emperor Child Fists, who talks about how he’d like to date his daughter.
And simply to placed on a bow on the unhappiness of Obama leaving workplace, White Home photographer Pete Souza launched a few of his favourite pictures from the Obama presidency: Obama and his women taking part in within the snow in 2010.
