On Tuesday, January 10th, 2017 the American public will be tuned in to the Farewell Address given by President Baraka Obama. This will be one of his last major public appearances as the President of the United States. This speech is sure to bring about some interesting conversation from Democrats and Republicans alike. We have learned that the speech will be a call to action rather than a reflection on his either years.
President Obama Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett stated “The major focus on the speech isn’t going to be reflecting back on how far we’ve come over the last eight years, but really looking forward and how we take the accomplishments, many (of which) through the hard work and grit of the American people came to fruition, and build on that going forward.”
With this being the case, it will be interesting to see if makes any direct statements that are aimed at President Elect Donald Trump. With Meryl Streep voicing her opinion at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, we are just getting started when it comes to the different views of Mr. Trump.
The President Elect will likely be tuning into this speech. It may very well be the case that he actively uses his Tweeter account to voice his opinion while President Obama is speaking. We will do our best to get the tweets and reactions up as soon as possible. Kellyanne Conway is also sure to offer some of her knowledge when it comes to President Obama’s speech as well.
Do you think it is right for President Elect Trump to respond to President Barack Obama on Twitter? Is this being childish and uncalled for? Should Trump remain quiet and get ready for his inauguration in 10 days?
The speech will be on all major networks (CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC) a 9:00 pm est. As soon as the speech has concluded it will immediately get dissected and scrutinized by the expert.
