The first lady held her last holiday party for staffers who work in the East Wing on Tuesday.

After eating at Spike Mendelsohn’s pizza restaurant on Capitol Hill, “We the Pizza,” the group moved Mendelsohn’s other nearby restaurant “Béarnaise” where she gave a speech that made people emotional.

According to a source who was there, Obama’s remarks about their hard work “left everyone in tears.”
