Celebrities, Social Media React To Powerful #ObamaFarewell Speech
During Barack Obama’s final farewell speech in office, and in the moments after, many celebrities took to social media to pay their respects to the 44th US president.
While some chose to share personal memories of meeting outgoing POTUS, others commented on the speech itself.
And as expected, more than a few also got in a few jabs — both direct and lightly veiled — at the next guy taking over the job.
Donald Trump has yet to respond to Obama’s speech as usual on twitter, he might be a bit preoccupied right now.
See the reactions below…..
This #ObamaFarewell is beautiful. The love. Could Trump soak up all this warmth?

Watching Obama's final address, and realizing how very, very far we are about to descend. Farewell, O Captain my Captain! Heavens save us.
