NBC News reports:
President Barack Obama and the first lady shared a bittersweet goodbye — and a few laughs — in their final Christmas video message to the country released Saturday.
There was even a throwback when Michelle Obama introduced a clip of their first Christmas address in 2009, when the president — with hair that was noticeably less gray — couldn’t stop giggling.
“Celebrating the holidays in the White House over these past eight years has been a true privilege,” she said in their most recent holiday message. “We’ve been able to welcome over half a million guests, our outstanding pastry chefs have baked 200,000 holiday cookies and Barack has treated the American people to countless dad jokes.”
“Although a few got a frosty reception,” the president added. In the four-minute address, the first couple thanked the military families, touted Obamacare and other initiatives, and imparted the idea that in America, we “are our brother’s keeper.”
