VIDEO: President Obama Praises Michelle, Malia, & Sasha During His Farewell Address

President Barack Obama had some amazing words to say about his family – wife Michelle Obama and daughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15 – during his Farewell Address

The President of the United States saved remarks for his family for the end of the address, which was delivered on Tuesday night (January 10) in Chicago, Ill.

Michelle – for the past 25 years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend,” Obama said. “You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud. You’ve made the country proud.”

Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad,” he added about his daughters.

Obamas Send Final Christmas Message from the White House

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have given their final Christmas address to the nation from the White House and it’s giving us all the feels.

The nation’s first couple opened up about the idea of the holiday and how it connects to other religions.

“The idea that we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper. That we should treat others as we would want to be treated. And that we care for the sick… feed the hungry… and welcome the stranger… no matter where they come from, or how they practice their faith,” Michelle said.

“Those are values that help guide not just my family’s Christian faith, but that of Jewish Americans, and Muslim Americans; nonbelievers and Americans of all backgrounds. And no one better embodies that spirit of service than the men and women who wear our country’s uniform and their families,” Barack added.

In the special, Michelle talked about Americans feeling like they don’t have hope after Donald Trump winning the election.

“We feel the difference now. See, now, we are feeling what not having hope feels like,” she said. “Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept and Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believe that — what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?”

VIDEO: Michelle Obama & Ryan Seacrest Read Christmas Classics at Children's Hospital

Michelle Obama and Ryan Seacrest helped some young patients and their families get into the holiday spirit!

The 52-year-old First Lady joined the the 41-year-old radio host at his Ryan Seacrest Foundation’s Seacrest Studios during their visit to The Children’s National Health System on Monday (December 12) in Washington, D.C.

The two read classics like “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” to the crowd and answered some holiday questions.

“Since I’ve been First Lady I ski a little bit more – because we don’t get to get outside,” Michelle revealed regarding her favorite holiday activity. “When you’re President and First Lady, our lives are really – we live in a bubble.”

“When I’m skiing, that’s, like, one of the few places in the winter where I feel free,” she added. “Because nobody can take a selfie with you when you’re skiing down a mountain, no matter how. Some are really good, but they generally can’t whip out the phone and catch you when you’re going down. So skiing for me is like golfing to the President.”
