President Obama Nearly Quoted 'Friday Night Lights' During State of the Union 2016!

President Barack Obama delivers his eighth and final State of the Union address on Tuesday (January 12) on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

The 54-year-old President of the United States ended his speech by nearly delivering the famous Friday Night Lights line, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose,” and of course Twitter went crazy.

In reality, this is what he said: “That’s the America I know. That’s the country we love. Clear-eyed. Big-hearted. Undaunted by challenge. Optimistic that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. That’s what makes me so hopeful about our future.”

Michelle Obama was at the address in a yellow Narcisco Rodriguez dress. See pics below!
