Barack Obama has said his final words as our POTUS.
President Obama gave an emotional farewell address from Chicago on Tuesday and his words were graceful, heartfelt, and touching. And just like us, stars ranging from Ellen DeGeneres, Katy Perry, Big Sean and Zendaya couldn’t resist dropping their emotions all over the keyboard.
“I love you more than I have space on Twitter to describe,” DeGeneres, a recent Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, tweeted to Obama. While Zendaya tweeted, “Me watching my president Obama’s farewell address tonight,” along with a GIF of Oprah sobbing into a tissue.
