Protester Interrupts Obama During Farewell Address, Crowd Chants ‘Four More Years’


President Obama was interrupted on Tuesday night by a protester during his farewell address in Chicago before leaving office.

Obama was reflecting on when he first came to Chicago in his early twenties and was trying to figure out what he wanted to do with his life when the protester started chanting over the president.

"I first came to Chicago when I was in my early twenties and I was still trying to figure out who I was, still searching for a purpose in my life," Obama said.

The protester was chanting something inaudible as Obama spoke, but then was drowned out by the crowd, which started chanting "four more years" several times.

"I can't do that," Obama responded with a laugh.

While it is unclear what the protester was yelling, there were multiple networks that showed a man holding a "Pardon Us All Now" sign.

Chicagoist writer Aaron Cynic tweeted a picture of the protester.
