    Here's a not-so-secret confession: I'm really, really going to miss President Obama.

    Part of it, I'm sure, is because both he and I have August birthdays. Another part of it is that we're both Black. But the biggest part: He's just really funny. From his first term swag to the no-holds-barred shade of his final months in office, he's the President who invited rappers to the Oval Office and who read mean tweets on late night. When Obama takes his last step out of the White House in January, we're in for a rude awakening: The coolest president will have left the building.

    So here's a little something for everyone else who's feeling some election fatigue. (We all know we're casting our vote for the person who doesn't brag about grabbing pussies.) Take a look at our sitting president's funniest moments.

    Here's to you, Barack. In the words of the poet Aubrey Drake Graham, you're the best I've ever had.

    Mean Tweets, President Obama Edition
    March 2015

    "A 30-pack of Coors Light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama." I never thought I'd live to see Obama talking about the beer of the frat parties of my youth, but here we are. That's how incredible he is.

    President Obama's Anger Translator
    April 2015

    A classic Key & Peele segment got a presidential update. Keegan-Michael Key reprised his role as Luther, President Obama's anger translator. "We can count on Fox News to terrify white people with some nonsense: Sharia law is coming to Cleveland!"

    Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
    December 2015

    "I always wanted to be in a show about nothing, and here I am," Obama told Jerry Seinfeld. Moments later he takes a sip of what's ostensibly water, but he's a cool president, so he jokes that it's a little shot of gin.

    Between Two Ferns
    March 2014

    Zach Galifianakis and President Obama — called a "community organizer on the show — face off in this clever plug for the Affordable Care Act. The two eventually talk about presidential term limits: "If I ran a third time, it'd be a little like doing a third Hangover movie. It didn't really work out too well, did it?"

    *Clapping Hands Emoji*
    November 2015

    My personal favorite: When Obama's policy decisions were challenged by pundits outside the Oval Office, President Obama got a little salty. Insert your own clapping hands emoji: "If folks wanna pop off!"
