Recap Of Obama Farewell Speech – Tha Wire
Today in Tha Wire yesterday was bittersweet as President Barack Obama delivered his final speech from McCormick Place in Chicago. The sold out arena was full of Americans that resembled every walk of life and nationality, all clinging Presidents last words as Commander And Chief. The POTUS spoke eloquently, as always, telling the thousands in attendance "thank you for this amazing journey." Most stood the entire speech, while others cried as they listened to Obama's positive message offering a "hopeful" vision for the future. The President said, "My fellow Americans it has been the honor of my life to serve you." Wiping tears from her eyes, Malia, listened as her father said “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.”
In case you were wondering, Sasha was in D.C. studying for an exam she took this morning by the way. Though she wasn't in attendance, you can bet she was with her dad in spirit. Obama thanked everyone in his cabinet, and teared up when he thanked his wife for being his rock and having his back.

That's not all. The Russian government says they was in touch with members of President-elect Donald Trump's campaign staff during the U.S. election campaign! This and other damaging accusations are coming to light thanks to a rather salacious 35-page document, that's making it's rounds in Washington as we speak. The lengthy summary was presented to both President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump just last week!
