This week, Barack Obama headed back to his adopted hometown of Chicago to deliver his final presidential speech having served two terms in office as the President of the United States. Putting American politics aside, we think it’s an undeniable fact that Obama is one of, if not the, coolest men on the planet. And here’s why…
When Obama Played Daniel Day-Lewis Playing Himself in ‘Obama: The Movie’
If there’s one thing Obama hasn’t been afraid of during his time at POTUS, it’s poking fun at himself.

Not a dry eye in the house.
When Obama Roasted Donald Trump
Before Donald Trump became President-elect, he spent much of his time questioning the legitimacy of Obama’s birth certificate. To get his own back, Obama gave the Celebrity Apprentice star the roast of all roasts at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2011. If only we knew how it would end…
When Obama Dropped The Mic
As he entered his final days as President, Obama had one last White House Correspondents’ Dinner to host. His final speech fired shots at Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and even himself before bowing out in style. Obama Out.
