Before boarding his last flight on the military aircraft that transports presidents, the affable politician gave brief farewell remarks to his staff and supporters at Joint Base Andrews.

The former (ugh) Commander in Chief started his final farewell by cracking a classic Obama-style joke about his long goodbye tour, quipping:

"Michelle and I have really been milking this goodbye thing."

And we don't regret one second of it! Obama continued his short speech by praising the American people, saying:

George Clooney has honored his cousin Miguel Ferrer, who died Thursday morning at the age of 61.

The actor, who starred as Dr. Garret Macy on Crossing Jordan and Assistant Director Owen Grange on NCIS: Los Angeles, peacefully died at his home after a long battle with throat cancer, surrounded by family.

The California native also played troubled FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield on Twin Peaks, which he reprised for the drama's upcoming Showtime revival.

In a tribute to his late cousin, Clooney compared the family's personal tragedy to one that the country is going through in the dawn of Donald Trump's presidency.

Speaking to EW, he said:

"Today history will mark giant changes in our world, and lost to most will be that on the same day Miguel Ferrer lost his battle to throat cancer. But not lost to his family. Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will."

So sad. Our hearts go out to all of Ferrer's family, friends, and fans at this trying time.

The sun is setting on Barack Obama's term as our 44th President, and he shared some final words of wisdom before Richie Rich Donald Trump takes over the White House on Friday.

On Thursday, the outgoing Commander in Chief penned a touching goodbye letter to his fellow Americans, thanking the citizens for making him "a better President" and "a better man."

After noting he would continue the "long-standing tradition" of leaving his successor some parting advice, Obama highlighted some of the things he learned from the people over the past 8 years.

The affable politician concluded his letter with some calming fatherly words (and some subtle shade, perhaps?), declaring America is "not the project of any one person." Yup, that's some presidential shade right there.

Man, we're gonna miss this guy. Read Obama's full goodbye letter (below)!

What a get. *eye roll*

Donald Trump's struggle to get A-listers to pop up at his Inauguration (and various after parties) has once again been made abundantly clear. LOLz!

On Wednesday, it was announced that Michael Flatley (AKA the Lord Of The Dance creator) has been booked to dance at Drumpf's Liberty Ball. Yup, according to TMZ, the President-elect will ring in his presidency by watching Flatley and his Irish step dancing troupe break it down at Friday's bash.

Apparently, the Inaugural Committee has been wanting to book him for awhile but didn't get a confirmation until yesterday. It's said the famed dancer will be joining Sam Moore, Travis Greene, and many other artists who have been tapped to perform at the different political parties.

You know, (some of) The Rockettes will be performing as well. Is Trump going to make them do a dance off? Oh, we hope so….

In case you completely forgot Lord Of The Dance was a thing, step back into the magic (below)!

This is NOT okay.

With just about a week until A Dog's Purpose's theatrical release, new footage has surfaced that is sure to keep animal lovers from seeing the film.

TMZ obtained footage from the flick's production in November 2015, which shows one of the pups being forced into terrifyingly turbulent water to film a scene in Winnipeg, Canada.

The chilling clip captures an animal trainer shoving a visibly frightened German Shepherd into a pool full of water that was being churned by EIGHT motors.

The pup was so opposed to getting into the recreated river that it clawed at the edge of the pool the entire way in.

What's even scarier is that the pooch actually went under at one point. And while we don't know if the script called for the animal to be submerged, we could hear someone repeatedly yell:
