WATCH: President Obama's 'State of the Union' Address


Did you catch the State of the Union address last night (Jan. 20) from President Barack Obama? Did you peep the classy shade he threw in during his speech?

"I have no more campaigns to run. I know because I won both of them.”

Ha!

SPEECH HIGHLIGHTS:

A couple of highlights from his speech included lowering the cost of community college to zero.

"We need to make two years of college as free and universal in America as high school is today."

Obama discussed equal pay for both men and women. He also pushed for protection for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.

"As Americans, we respect human dignity, even when we're threatened, which is why I've prohibited torture, and worked to make sure our use of new technology like drones is properly constrained," Obama said.

He added, "That’s why we defend free speech, and advocate for political prisoners, and condemn the persecution of women, or religious minorities, or people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. We do these things not only because they're right, but because they make us safer."

Obama mentioned the low gas prices:

"Thanks to lower gas prices & higher fuel standards, the typical family this year should save $750"

The president ended his speech saying:

"My fellow Americans, we, too, are a strong, tight-knit family.  We, too, have made it through some hard times.  Fifteen years into this new century, we have picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off, and begun again the work of remaking America.  We have laid a new foundation.  A brighter future is ours to write.  Let’s begin this new chapter together -- and let’s start the work right now."
