KoopaTV Live Reacts to President Obama's Farewell Address

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Goodbye, President Barack Hussein Obama. ...Shoo.

We have something very important to tell you, KoopaTV readers! ...But it'll have to wait, because President Barack Hussein Obama has taken over the airwaves of every TV station once more. No, it's not another State of the Union... it's his Farewell Address! That means, it will be the last time KoopaTV will have a reaction log dedicated to President Barack Hussein Obama. No more after this! ...Or so we're told by the Constitution of the United States. (But as the speaker points out, it is a mere piece of parchment that he is free to ignore.)

Your KoopaTV staffers live reacting to this once-in-a-lifetime event are Ludwig, as Nintendork 13 13, and Vortexica, as that breezinabout dude.

        Computer has lost the ability to connect to the internet at all whatsoever.
    Apparently that happened. 8:57 pm
    RIP Rawk.

 Nintendork 13 13 8:58 pm
    Maybe it was the Russians. 8:58 pm
    Or the white supremacists.

 Nintendork 13 13 8:58 pm
    54,719 watching now
    Pretty weak.
    Though we'll compare that with how many people are watching the Nintendo Switch presentation.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:00 pm
    It just jumped 10,000.
    And another 10,000.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:02 pm
    And another 10,000.
    Please welcome the 44th president of the United States... 9:02 pm
    Here he comes.

President Obama Farewell Address Chicago January 10 2017 beginning
President Obama delivers his farewell address to the American people.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:04 pm
    dem teeth 9:04 pm
    Soaking it up like a sponge.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:05 pm
    "You...Y-y-y-y-y-y-y-you can tell...
    Y-Y-You can tell..."
    Obama stutters are hilarious.
    I'll miss them.
    At 119,900 watching.
    Obama said he's been kept honest.
    "You've made me a better president."
    Aw, thanks, Obama!
    We try.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:06 pm
    ...but you don't listen to us.
    "...I can't do that." 9:07 pm
    King Obama!

 Nintendork 13 13 9:08 pm
    I hear the echo of his voice.
    It's very scary.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:09 pm
    Obama's not saying anything comment-worthy.
    Just American platitudes.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:11 pm
    "If I told you 8 years ago that America would reverse its Great Recession, reboot its auto-industry..."
    "...take out the mastermind of 9/11..."
    "...I have told you we'd win marriage equality and secure the right of health insurance for another 20 million of our fellow citizens..."
    "If I told you that, you'd tell me our sights were set a little too high."
    I dunno, getting out a recession being an accomplishment is setting it too low.
    Recessions by definition don't last a presidential term! 9:13 pm
    Dem boos.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:13 pm
    Obama says in 10 days...
    And boos.
    "I ensured to President Elect Trump would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did to me."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:13 pm
    Bush actually did do a smooth transition.
    Obama, meanwhile, has laid a ton of traps and shit for Trump.
    Like not veto-ing that anti-Israel UN thing. 9:14 pm
    And expelling Russia's diplomats.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:14 pm
    "Democracy does not require uniformity."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:16 pm
    He's not saying anything interesting now.
    "The wealthy are paying a fairer share of taxes." ???
    "Healthcare costs are rising at the slowest rate in 50 years..."
    Obama says he'll publicly support a healthcare plan that covers as many people at lower cost.
    Remember when Obamacare was supposed to make costs go DOWN?

 Nintendork 13 13 9:18 pm
    Obama says the healthcare worker has been laid off and left behind.
    (Maybe that's why healthcare costs are growing slowly?)
    Obama talking about automation wrecking jobs. (Rawk's fear.)
    (And mentioned in KoopaTV Adventures Episode 1, which just yesterday was awarded the Best KoopaTV Artistic Contribution of 2016!)
    Obama cites DIVISION as progress-stalling.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:20 pm
    Are these cheers preprogrammed?
    Obama describing how SOME describe economics as a hard-working white majority being taken advantage of by a minority.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:22 pm
    Obama wants to enforce anti-discrimination laws.
    "Hearts must change."
    Quoting Atticus Finch.
    About knowing how the other lives.
    Obama telling black people to stop saying WHITE PRIVILEGE
    (in a roundabout way)
    Meanwhile, Obama telling white people that slavery's effects are still going on.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:24 pm
    And that black people don't want special treatment, but equal treatment.
    Obama claiming that rhetoric about immigrants today matched rhetoric about the Irish centuries ago.'
    But the benefits of embracing these people will be the same too.
    Obama bashing bubbles within social media feeds and college campuses.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:27 pm
    Obama saying people are so secure in their bubbles they only accept information that confirms their own biases.
    "Without some common baseline of facts, without willingness to accept new information, the willingness to concede your opponent may have a good point..."
    "...we'll keep talking past each other."
    "It's not just dishonest, this selective sorting of the facts, it's self-defeating. Because, as my mom used to tell me, reality has a way of catching up with you."
    Now he's bringing up climate change.

Obama sees no evil... but he certainly hears it. Look at those ears!

 Nintendork 13 13 9:30 pm
    "To simply deny the problem not only betrays future generations, but betrays the spirit of this country."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:33 pm
    Obama citing diplomats to ensure no terrorist attack happens on "the homeland".
    Unfortunately, the diplomats themselves get killed on their missions.
    wtf is Obama talking about
    Guantanamo Bay is still open.
    And he expanded privacy-violating surveillance. 9:35 pm
    Well he did only say "worked to" close it.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:35 pm
    Obama getting a standing ovation from saying we can't discriminate against Muslim Americans. 9:36 pm
    Also my stream keeps cutting out and jumpoing around.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:37 pm
    "ISIL will try to kill innocent people."
    Thanks, Obama.
    He's at his "final point" and crowd is sad. 9:38 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 9:38 pm
    186,503 watching.
    "We should be making it easier, not harder, to vote."
    Obama says the Constitution is a "beautiful gift" but "just a piece of parchment".

 Nintendork 13 13 9:40 pm
    And says it's "up to us" to give it power.
    (And when it was up to him, he ignored it.)
    Americans should take responsibility for electing bad elected officials.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:42 pm
    He wants Americans to be "jealous" and "angry".
    Or something.
    "We all share the same, proud title. The most important office in a democracy... citizen."
    "If you're tired of arguing with strangers on the Internet, try talking with one of them in real life!"
    Obama says Americans should "run for office yourself" if they're disappointed with their elected officials.
    "Sometimes ya win. Sometimes ya lose." 9:44 pm
    And sometimes it's rigged.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:44 pm
    Obama keeps saying "refugees."

 Nintendork 13 13 9:46 pm
    Obama's imitating Michelle Obama facial expressions.
    I think.
    Michelle Obama apparently had "good humor."
    Obama wiping his eyes with a handkerchief. 9:48 pm
    Manly tears.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:48 pm
    Michelle Obama is apparently a role model to children.
    ...a whole generation of Americans are down the drain.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:49 pm
    "Of all I've done in my life, I'm most proud to be your dad." - Obama to his kids
    "...TO JOE BIDEN."
    "The scrappy kid from Scranton!"
    "You were the first decision I made as a nominee, and it was the best!"
    "In the bargain, I've gained a brother!"

 Nintendork 13 13 9:52 pm
    200,014 viewers.
    Obama says the new generation of Americans are "unselfish"
    Are you kidding? Americans are more materialistic than ever!
    "You'll soon outnumber all of us, and I believe as a result, the future is in good hands!"
    The future is DOOMED.

President Obama Farewell Address January 10 2017 Chicago clapping applause Barack ending
He's applauding himself. Or something.
Alternatively, he's wiping his hands of the responsibility over the country. Whatever happens ain't his problem any more

 Nintendork 13 13 9:54 pm
    He's leaving.
    coming back?
    Obama is missing a daughter.
    Crowd is cheering Joe Biden the most as everyone is on stage and leaving.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:57 pm
    They keep pointing to people.
    Watcher count dropping.
    Joe Biden keeps doing a gun thing with his fingers.
    Obama's family are all the same height.
    Though it could be the shoes.

 Nintendork 13 13 9:59 pm
    That's about it. 9:59 pm
    Apparently his other daughter is away at Harvard or something.

 Nintendork 13 13 10:00 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 10:03 pm
    Glad it's over.

This happens to be KoopaTV's 1,000th article. These first 1,000 articles have been great, but were only so limited in greatness due to the lacklustre American president. Now, there will be a great one, and that will somehow affect KoopaTV in a profound way. Stay tuned...

For 2016's State of the Union address, click here.
Over a month later, President Donald John Trump gives his first Joint Address to Congress.


  1. I too will miss his stutters and the hilarious remixes.

  2. I wonder if I will meet my child in the old age or the new age of presidency.

    1. Keep 'em inside for just a little while longer!

    2. Obama age it is. I'm being induced today.

    3. ...Guess you'll be a totally different Girafarig next time we hear from you.

  3. "Obama, meanwhile, has laid a ton of traps and **** for Trump."
    I dunno about that. He seems to be doing well running Executive Orders, especially with the 180° flip on the Dakota Access Pipeline.

    "The future is DOOMED."
    Are... you referring to Americans, or the Government? Or both?

    Well, I'm still forming my political opinions at this time and age. If you desire so, you can take some of my statements with a grain of salt.

    1. What I said is absolutely right, especially in foreign policy areas.

      I said the future is doomed because Obama says the new generation will be the future. Take a look at your generation of people. You want them to be the country? Millennials and the folks after them are disasters, and woe be the countries that put them in leadership positions.
