Donald Trump might be our President this time next week, but we’ve still got one last hurrah with Barack!

On Wednesday afternoon, President Barack Obama held his FINAL press conference and took some of the press’ questions regarding his legacy — and it was everything we hoped for!

The Prez started his address off by joking about wearing a tan suit on his final day, but apparently Michelle Obama has better fashion sense. LOLz!

Getting down to serious matters, Mr. Obama mentioned he’d already been in touch with the Bush family regarding George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush‘s recent hospitalization, and sent them his thoughts and prayers.

The President then did something we probably won’t see in the next four years — Barack sincerely thanked the press for their tough questions as he admitted they aren’t supposed to be complimentary. Our leader even said our country “doesn’t work if we don’t have a well-informed citizenry.”

Obama then started taking questions in which he commented on everything from our relations with Russia to his conversations with Donald to LGBT rights!
