Seeds: Over the last year, the country has counted down the lasts of the Obama administration. Final State of the Union address, final White House Correspondents dinner, final turkey pardoning, you get the idea. Today, President Obama had his final press conference.
Core: In the press conference, President Obama thanked the reporters present for the role they play in American government. The overall tone of the press conference was one of hope. Despite all that’s happening, President Obama continues to “believe in the American people” and “believe that people are more good than bad.”
Skin: The questions asked in today’s press conference were not especially hard-hitting, but rather had a slightly personal touch. The last question Obama took as President of the United States had to do with his daughters and how they will move forward in light of the election.
Leaves: As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take the oath of office on Friday, the country is preparing for a change in tone at future presidential press conferences.
