The crowd chanted “four more years” as Barack Obama took the stage at McCormick Place in Chicago to deliver his farewell address Tuesday night.
As the president got on stage, he acknowledged that he is a lame duck president because “no one’s following instructions.” The audience then broke out into a “four more years” chant.
“I can’t do that,” Obama said.

The crowd then booed when Obama said that someone else would be taking the office within a matter of days.
“No, no, no,” he said. “I committed to Trump and his transition team that it would be smoothest transition, just as George W. Bush did for me.”
