Twitter bids farewell to Barack Obama

but everyone wants to know, where was Sasha?

10:40 AMTuesday night in Chicago, President Barack Obama gave his last public speech and Twitter was watching feverishly. There was a lot of raw emotion and the TL was definitely an indicator of how much a lot of people are going to miss him. It broke down into three main categories and hashtags. And, of course, the big question was: Where’s Sasha? The answer is at home, studying for a test. Sidwell Friends School is WAY wrong for not letting her get out of that one, if you ask us. If you want to read the speech in full, here you go.

In general, most people just couldn’t keep in the love, including for Michelle Obama, who is just so, so sweet.

Let’s not forget how good my man was with kids, either.

This song will never really be the same.

If cats like you, you’ve probably done something right in your life.

Now, as for Sasha Obama, this was basically the story of the night for most people. The whole scene felt a tad incomplete, which was rather unfortunate. Also, it was tough to see Malia Obama cry without her sister there. Anyways, it was not easy to watch for many.

Not sure this is how it works, but OK.

Nah, they wouldn’t do this.

Before the news broke, it was a legit problem.

In the end, though, people just wanted to make sure that it was well-known that Barack Obama was appreciated. There was even an official way to do so on Twitter.

Nearly everything he did captured some people.

Then, Drake stepped in being the absolute worst with this awful Photoshop job, which should have never, ever seen the light of day. Stay in your lane, Drizzy.

But, we saved the best for last.

What a family, what a time.
