President Obama Final Press Conference Live Stream: Watch Online!
President Barack Obama will hold his final press conference as Commander-in-Chief in the White House briefing room on Wednesday. Gossip Cop has a live stream available online. Watch below!
The press conference comes just one day after Obama commuted the prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence officer who leaked classified documents to WikiLeaks. She was sentenced to 35 years in prison for the offense, but she’ll now be released in May after serving only six years behind bars. Obama will presumably field questions about his decision to commute Manning, in addition to the more than 200 other commutations and dozens of pardons he approved.
Additionally, Obama’s press event comes just two days before president-elect Donald Trump is sworn in at his inauguration on Friday. The outgoing president will most likely receive many questions regarding his successor. Obama will also attend Trump’s ceremony, and then is scheduled to vacation in Palm Springs with his family. Following their move from the White House, the Obama’s will stay in a rented house in Washington, D.C. as the family’s youngest daughter, Sasha, completes high school.
The press conference will begin at 2:15 p.m. ET. Watch President Obama’s final press conference in the live stream below!
