This man has got words. Such oratory. Such eloquence. It truly is a thing of beauty to watch.
And when he spoke of Michelle, his wife, it literally left us weak at the knees- as it also reminded us that tributes are much more for the living than they are for the dead. Let those you love know it now, while they are with you.
“Malia and Sasha…
… under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing young women.
You are smart and you are beautiful. But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion.
… you wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I have done in my life, I am most proud to be your dad.”
Doesn’t that just turn on the water works?
Ladies and gentlemen, the 44th President of the United States.

I have a ton of disagreements with Pres. Obama but after #ObamaFarewell you at least remember what an intelligent leader sounds like.

Michelle and Barack are the epitome of supporting your partner. Not creating someone new, but seeing their greatness and supporting that.

I can't even talk about my Michelle Obama feelings because I have too many of them and will cry forever.

Most FLOTUS are accessories to the POTUS. Michelle Obama is one of the few that was equally as amazing as her husband.

Also, I want someone to look at me the way Michelle looks at Barack. That's love.

Michelle Obama is putting too much pressure on Donald Trump's First Lady. Hope she could also touch other people's lives like Michelle did.😏

I literally cannot watch Obama thank Michelle without immediately crying. Couldn't the first time, still can't now. THANK YOU OBAMAS🇺🇸❤

The way Barack talked about Michelle yesterday was just beautiful! Can't wait to live like that
