President Barack Obama is the kind of president who gets to see the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere before everyone else, who freestyle raps with Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda, and appears on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

He’s also the kind of president who drops the mic at the end of his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech. 

After giving a speech that poked fun at Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Obama concluded his jokes by saying, “It has been an honor and a privilege to work side by side with you to strengthen our democracy. And with that, I just have two more words to say: Obama out.” 

See his mic drop moment below. 

 

The perfect end to a speech that referenced The Red Wedding from Game of Thrones, Kendall Jenner’s Twitter followers, and Trump Steak.
