Thank You Notes with President Obama


You’re nearing the end
of your second term.
And you must have a lot
to be thankful for yourself.
I do.
And I thought,
maybe if you’d like,
you’re more than welcome
to write out
some thank-you notes right now.
Oh, that’s a good use
of my time.
Is that good?
Let’s do that.
[ Cheers and applause ]
Right here?
Yeah.
You can sit right there.
Okay.
All right.
All right. Here you go.
I have notes right here for you.
Okay.
You got the cards?
Here’s a card.
Here’s a pen.
All right.
That’s a nice pen.
Can I keep it?
Of course, yeah.
[ Laughter ]
All right, Roots,
can I get some thank-you note
writing music, please?
[ Sad piano music plays ]
[ Laughter ]
There goes James.
[ Cheers and applause ]
[ Music stops ]
Thank you, my 2008 slogan,
“Yes, we can.”
Or as I now like
to call you, “Yes, we did.”
[ Cheers and applause ]
That’s good.
I’ll take that.
[ Laughter ]
I’ll write one now, too.
Okay.
[ Clears throat ]
[ Music resumes ]
Thank you, President Obama’s
birth certificate.
He used to carry you around
to prove he was American.
Now he needs to carry you around
to prove he’s only 54.
[ Laughter and applause ]
[ Music stops ]
That’s not — What?
[ Scoffs ]
I didn’t’ write —
I didn’t write it.
I don’t know
how that got there.
That’s unbeliev–
I don’t know how that got there.
How’d that sneak —
sneak by the president?
You’re in trouble.
[ Laughter ]
[ Music resumes ]
Thank you,
Questlove’s hairstylist,
for inspiring me
to bring back the “Obama-fro”
after I leave
the White House.
[ Music stops ]
[ Cheers and applause ]
Hey, not bad.
Not bad.
Good-looking guy.
[ Music resumes ]
Thank you,
Hillary Clinton,
for possibly becoming
the first f– President.
I would have said “female,”
but someone deleted
the “emale.”
[e-mail]
[ Audience ohs ]
[ Music stops ]
Who did —
How are these —
Hey!
You’re going to get
in trouble for this.
You can’t
leave these around.
I’m so — I’m appalled.
I’m so sorry.
Hey, you’re in trouble,
whoever you —
I’m not sure
this was a good idea.
[ Laughter ]
Sorry.
I should have done
my thank-you notes on my own.
After you.
Where’s my music?
[ Laughter ]
[ Music resumes ]
Thank you, Congress,
for spending eight years
wishing you could replace me
with a Republican.
Or,
to put it another way…
how do you like me now?
[ Cheers and applause ]
[ Music stops ]
[ Laughs ]
All right.
You know how to do this.
I have one final —
one final thank-you note.
Here we go.
[ Music resumes ]
Thank you, President Obama,
for serving our nation
with dignity,
class, patience, eloquence,
optimism, and integrity.
Thus marking the first time
anyone has sincerely said,
“Thanks, Obama.”
There you go, right there.
[ Cheers and applause ]
Thank you so much.
We’ll see you soon.
Our thanks to the 44th President
of the United States,
Barack Obama!

  4. I disagreed with a lot of his choices as president but as a person, he’s so relaxed and funny, just seems like a really laid back guy who got stuck fighting Congress all the time

  5. No matter what you think be did or didn't do for the United States, this guy is the coolest god damn president ever.

  6. I haven't been to America, but I have watched this man. I have seen him being a soldier of America, doing what leader does. What a man, what a president. You are a great man, Mr Barack Obama

  7. What we people outside of the US wanna know is how did you guys go from an intellectual and cool guy like Obama to a weird narcissist like Trump.

  12. Best president in the world was a pleasure to salute him and give him a hug and hand shake

  13. Obama the liar in chief! Committed fraud on the American people. Lied to us! And tried to circumvent elected leaders. Terrible president and person. When is lying to those you serve admirable or acceptable?

  15. “Thank you” for terrorism, suppressing Christianity, almost tripling our national debt in your 8 years, and letting Americans die in Benghazi. We would have been better off with Putin.

  16. Seeing this, seeing Obama, and thinkin' about italian politician makes me sooo sad

  17. When is Obama coming out of the closet and going to admit he's a gay Muslim ?????

  20. He didn't really want to give away that pen, you can see it in his eyes.

  21. I still very painfully have to force myself not to say 'President Obama' whenever I have doctors ask me "who's the current president" as one of those control questions to make sure your brain isn't scrambled when you go to the hospital

  22. Yes we did! We totally bombed tens thousands of innocent men, women and children in 7 different countries. Woohoo!! Murica!!
