President Obama will soon be leaving the White House (wipes tears). He recently decided to hold his farewell speech in Chicago. The speech will be at McCormick Place in his hometown Jan. 10. Admission is free, with tickets being released Jan. 7 on a first-come-first-serve basis.

On Monday, Obama said,

“In 1796, as George Washington set the precedent for a peaceful, democratic transfer of power, he also set a precedent by penning a farewell address to the American people and over the 220 years since, many American presidents have followed his lead.”

He went on to say,

“Since 2009, we’ve faced our fair share of challenges, and come through them stronger. That’s because we have never let go of a belief that has guided us ever since our founding—our conviction that, together, we can change this country for the better.”

It has been reported that Obama will be coming up with a plan to shield the Affordable Care Act from the impending Republican threat of repeal. I’m not going to lie, I’m very sad Obama is leaving. Now we’re force to sit and watch Trump try and “make America great again.”
