The Obamas' Final Holiday Message Will Make You Emotional

While next year we're all going to be forced to pa-rum-pum-pum-pum-Trump around the Christmas tree, we've still got one year left to Jingle Bell Barack.

On Christmas Eve, Michelle and Barack Obama posted their final White House holiday message on Facebook, tugging on the heartstrings of the nation.

For many of us, the holiday season is synonymous with nostalgic trips down memory lane because it's easier to say, "Grandpa, tell us about the day Mom was born!" than "Grandpa, please stop telling us how illegals are taking our jobs, you haven't worked in a quarter century."

FLOTUS and POTUS delivered their parting well-wishes with a level of class, poise and eye-twinkling that could only possibly be compared to that of Santa and Mrs. Claus.

As if Barack organically referring to Michelle as his "best friend" wasn't enough to send you into an emotional tailspin, the video cuts to the very first Christmas Weekly Adress the couple sent.

In the clip, Obama starts laughing right after the First Lady says, "This is our first Christmas in the White House," as if he can hardly believe that's a reality.

Michelle playfully hits him and tells him he needs to "pull it together, POTUS" with the same I-can't-believe-I-get-to-call-you-that emphasis I would put on "Bradley Cooper" if he randomly decided to propose to me and I brought him home for the holidays.

It's hard to picture what next year's presidential holiday message will look like and how it will make us all feel, but we luckily have eight years worth of wholesome videos to hold us over.

People on Facebook share these sentiments and sent gracious thank yous to the Obamas, many expressing how much they will miss the couple in the White House.


Thank you, Barack and Michelle, for being the dignified faces of the United States for the past eight years. You will certainly be missed.
