During President Obama’s final farewell address on January 10, conservative media figures criticized and smeared Obama, claiming he had "destroyed a basic sense of solidarity," was "racially divisive," and was "faking tears" while talking about Michelle Obama.

President Obama said farewell Tuesday night to a nation he helped transform during his eight years in the White House.
