I don’t know about you, but as soon as 2016 hit, I started to go into mourning. In just about a year, the Obamas will bid adieu to the White House, meaning the free world’s first family will no longer be gorgeous and BLACK.
Every time President Obama does something absolutely cute, like treating a pair of young Black boys to the best selfie ever.
Or hugs a little Black girl like this:
Or wave from Air Force One with First Lady Michelle Obama:
I get the sads, because who knows how long it will be before we get another president who can challenge folks to pop off if they want while discussing the intricacies of global issues.
Tonight, President Obama will put on his freshest suit and lay out the vision for his remaining year in office during his final State of the Union address.
Though most presidents typically spend their final year in office with a terrible case of senioritis, President Obama has repeatedly said he plans to “leave it all on the field” and work his hardest for the American people until the next president takes office.
Because the challenges facing of the country are great–terrorism, the economy, criminal justice reform, the environment–hearing President Obama’s plan for his final year in office and his vision for the future will be quite interesting.
I’ll be tuning in to tonight’s State of the Union address, will you?
