Obama era in the US politics is coming to an end. Just a short while and the America is done with one of its most popular presidents. It's only when we lose something that we realize the real beauty of what we had.
So now that Mr. Obama is ready to leave the office, we now remember some of the best appearances he had with the citizens he represented. There are a lot of instances that prove that the man was the sassiest president ever for the nation.
Let's have a look at why I love Obama so much.
It was a speech of his supporting Hillary Clinton in North Carolina. A supporter of Trump posed an aggressive verbal interruption. The protester apparently was an ex-army man. Obama stepped in when the man was booed and chanted by the crowd.
Obama went ahead to say the class he is. He said "First of all - hold up. We live in a country that respects free speech. Second of all, it looks like maybe he might have served in our military and we gotta respect that. Third of all, he is elderly, and we gotta respect our elders. And fourth of all, don't boo. Vote."
Mr President was among the speakers at the first ever United State of Women Summit. Obama without any hesitation declared himself a feminist when he spoke.
"I know you're here to see Michelle, or Oprah. I cannot compete with them. But I did want to stop by and make one thing very clear. I may be a little greyer than I was eight years ago, but this is what a feminist looks like."
His policies backed everything that he said there.
Mr Obama is one hell of a speaker. He is all class so much so that even the opponents would listen to him without any fuss. Not only that, he has a killer wit to have you glued. His several speeches at The White House Correspondent's Dinner make us smile a lot. At one such speech, he ended the meal with a memorable act. The Mic Drop.
Obama is a world leader. He never endorsed hatred based on race and boundaries. This character of his was highlighted in an incident when a Syrian refugee after losing his family approached Michigan. The man was fighting cancer and still believed he could make a difference to the world. Obama welcomed the refugee from the President's Verified Facebook Page by commenting on his photo.
Obama attended the funeral of a victim of the mass shooting at a South Carolina Church. He spoke beautifully for half an hour and broke into a rendition that made the whole room stand. He san "Amazing Grace."
The amazing Obama never failed to make people feel that he is one of them. He admits his mistakes and shares his experiences. He has no hesitation in expressing his emotions live.
Obama more often than not shows that he is as human as the citizens of America. He respects his family and even talks about his wife and daughters in front of people. He even cracked a dad joke when asked about his daughters. This president is an ordinary American.
We are yet to see how Trump is going to serve the US. But, what we know is that a great, humble, and dignified US president is leaving the office in next few days. The US had an awesome decade.
