Forget waiting for that new Kendrick Lamar album, the Commander-in-Chief is dropping bars, microphones, and Republicans in the here-and-now.
Last night, President Barack Obama shared his thoughts on America with his 2015 State of the Union address. In the speech, he called for political unity, shared success stories about the economy and unemployment, mentioned the wave of police brutality in the country, and threw shade to his detractors.
Nearing the end of his speech, the 44th president declared to the GOP-controlled Congress that he’s going to pass bills that set up Americans for the future because he has “no more campaigns to run.” The idea of an Obama-less political climate elicited applause and guffaws from some Republicans, but the country’s first Black president returned their serve with a quick witted (and on point) retort.
“I know because I won both of them,” he said, referring to his two successful presidential campaigns. It was so good that the Internet collective sat back in their chairs in shock and amazement. With the mic still hot from the embers of his riff, floating in the ether, the creative minds of the web took the moment to help signify the moment with their own brand of humor. We found the funniest 2015 State of the Union memes that you can see and laugh at in the following pages below.
