The Obama administration has released a video of emotional Hollywood elites, along with activists and other celebrities, gushing and “reminiscing” over their favorite moments during the Obama presidency.
The celebrity-filled farewell video is titled “Yes We Can: Your Most Memorable Moments from the Obama Presidency.”
The five-minute clip features appearances by Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jerry Seinfeld, and Ellen DeGeneres, each sharing their favorite “Obama moment” through teary-eyed testimonies.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson, for example, claims his relatives were unable to afford health assurance until Obama propelled the Affordable Care Act into effect.
Below are highlighted excerpts from some of the tales of the rich and famous, regarding President Obama:
Singer John Legend: “I never cried before, from an election result.”
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio: “When I was at the U.N. and I heard our president say that climate change is the most important issue facing, not only this generation but also future generations, it was inspiring.”
Television personality Ellen DeGeneres: “The CVS experience with Michelle (Obama) was pretty cool and dancing with Barack at his birthday party. And he’s a good dancer. He should not get any flack for that — you’re a good dancer.”
Actor Jerry Seinfeld: “Meeting President Obama was the peak of my existence.”
President Obama is expected to give his final presidential speech on Tuesday in Chicago.
