#ThankYouObama: BET & Twitter Pay Tribute to President Barack Obama, the Coolest POTUS Ever

In just a few months, we will have to say goodbye to the coolest President of the United States ever. Last night (Nov. 15), BET aired the TV special Love & Happiness: An Obama Celebration. The program celebrated President Barack Obama’s two-term presidency and also sparked the hashtag, #ThankYouObama.

The special was filmed last month on the White House lawn and included performances by Janelle Monae, Common, and Usher. Celebrities such as Jesse Williams and Samuel L. Jackson also spoke and the President and First Lady Michelle Obama were honored from the audience.

BET encouraged audience participation by using #ThankYouObama. The hashtag quickly became a trending topic and took on a life of its own as many expressed their gratitude for the First Family.

It’s been an amazing eight years that seemed to come and go in a blink of an eye. It will certainly be hard to say goodbye to President Obama. He overcame and achieved great things during his presidency and I’m not quite sure if there will be another President as cool in our lifetime. #ThankYouObama, your kindness and leadership will be missed!
