“Today is the last day that Barack Obama will be our president,” said Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday. “I want to personally thank him for changing my life. I am a legally married woman because of him and so is my wife.”
She praised Pres. Obama’s “courage and compassion” and said, “I love him, I love Michelle.”
She then rolled a series of video clips highlighting moments from the Obama presidency.
“Thank you for everything, President Obama and First Lady Michelle,” DeGeneres said. “We will miss you so much.”
