Tuesday night in Chicago, President Barack Obama delivered his Farewell Address to the nation. He reflected on his eight years in office and his hopes for the future of America.
How did the nation's celebrities and politicians react to the President's final remarks? We check the pulse of social media for answers.
Of course, we have to start with the reaction from First Lady Michelle Obama:

The President himself got the last word of the night on Twitter:
Thank you for everything. My last ask is the same as my first. I'm asking you to believe—not in my ability to create change, but in yours.— President Obama (@POTUS) January 11, 2017
