On Tuesday night, President Barack Obama delivered his farewell address in Chicago after serving as commander in chief for eight years. In his goodbye to the nation, Obama shared a message of optimism, calling on people to believe in their capacity to bring forth change:
My fellow Americans, it has been the honor of my life to serve you. I won't stop; in fact, I will be right there with you, as a citizen, for all my remaining days. But for now, whether you are young or whether you're young at heart, I do have one final ask of you as your president — the same thing I asked when you took a chance on me eight years ago. I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change — but in yours.
The internet honored the final stretch of Obama's presidency the only way it knew how: memes. Below is a roundup of some of the best memes created about Obama's departure and farewell address.
