Commencement addresses often turn president into comedian in chief

President Barack Obama was at it again on Thursday. Sure, he was taking his final stump speech for another test drive in a stadium packed with young voters . But he was also shopping for laughs.  

Obama delivered the commencement address at the U.S. Air Force Academy  graduation ceremony in Colorado Springs, where the outgoing president got to play a role he clearly enjoys: comedian in chief. Like his remarks to the blue-clad cadets Thursday, his previous 2016 commencement speeches at Howard (May 7) and Rutgers (May 15) universities were peppered with quips and off-the-cuff one-liners.

President Barack Obama will be the first former president to stick around D.C.  since Woodrow Wilson. Wilson retired from the White House with his wife, Edith Wilson, to 2340 S St., NW, in the Embassy Row neighborhood.  

Wilson lived there until his death in 1924. Edith lived there nearly four more decades until she died in 1961, when she gave the home to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. And, Embassy Row, off of Massachusetts Avenue, could very well be where the Obamas decide to live.

President Barack Obama plans to stay in Washington following the end of his term, at least for a little while.  

According to the White House press pool, Obama was dining with supporters of the Affordable Care Act at the Engine Company No. 3 restaurant in Milwaukee on Thursday when he was asked the big 2017 question.

For the Obama family, Friday’s Fourth of July celebrations will also mark another milestone — Malia Obama’s sweet 16 birthday.  

President Barack Obama made note Tuesday during a speech in Washington of Malia’s upcoming Independence Day birthday, with the president showing some apprehension as Malia begins to inch toward adulthood.
