It's been widely noted that first lady Melania Trump's visit Monday to Michigan schoolchildren, in which she urged an end to bullying, was slightly off her husband's brand. (Why, he tweeted mean things about a senator's height just this morning!)

"Yes, we can," he said during his farewell address in Chicago. "Yes, we did. Yes, we can."

The phrase - alongside "change we can believe in," "Hope" and "fired up and ready to go" -- is among the most indelible slogans the first black president employed to convey his political message during the last decade.

President Barack Obama on Thursday marked his final time lighting the National Christmas Tree with a wish that Americans will care for the sick, the hungry and the downtrodden this holiday season and treat one another as they would want to be treated.

"It's a message of unity, and a message of decency and a message of hope that never goes out of style," Obama said. "And it's one that we all need very much today."

'We Saved The Best For Last' At Final State Dinner: Barack Obama

 "Bittersweet" was the word of the night, the one often used to describe President Barack Obama's final State Dinner.

"We saved the best for last," he said Tuesday as he welcomed Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife, Agnese Landini, to the White House.

He wasn't joking.

The final gala meant everything was big or bigger, from the personality of the guest chef (Mario Batali) who collaborated on the menu to the size of the white tent (huge) on the South Lawn where the soiree was held, to the guest list (nearly 400 people).
