Barack Obama's Late-Night Slow Jam Makes Us Want Him to Stay POTUS Forever (VIDEO)

Barack Obama and Jimmy Fallon

Unfortunately, the latest episode of the The Tonight Show made us painfully aware of one thing -- President Barack Obama, also known as the coolest, only has eight more months in office. Surely our POTUS is trying to prepare us, making statements like, "There will be no third term. I can't stay forever. Besides, daddy's got a Hawaii vacation booked in about 223 days. But who's counting?" As sad as that news made us, Obama undoubtedly gave us yet another reason to cling to both him and his presidency: He performed a slow-jam sesh with the Roots and Jimmy Fallon, reporting the news -- and his presidential accomplishments.

During his skit, he made it no secret that Hillary was where his heart was, and that orange is NOT the new black (ahem, did you hear that, Donald Trump?).

Fallon joked that Obama made so much lemonade from the lemons he was dealt that Beyonce has begun calling him "Baracky with the good hair."

But, in addition to his major presidential strides throughout his two terms, Obama's been no stranger to comedy, possibly giving us more life than any president when it comes to his hilarious stage presence -- from his stand-up at the White House Correspondents' Dinners to his helping Lin-Manuel Miranda complete his freestyle.

This guy is a rare gem, and it completely breaks our hearts that we won't get another like him anytime soon.
