President, Barack Obama 

This speech by President Barack Obama is a great example of the use of humor in oratory. People have joked that the President would make a great comedian. Below we have also included another famous speech by the first Black American President. The President will be the topic of "Yes We Can" Class Two of Voices of Foster Care.


"As President Obama gets set to leave office, take a look back at one of his most memorable moments when he didn't hold back in his final speech at the White House correspondents' dinner firing barbs at himself, Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz." -
