Obama cuts off press conference to go see ‘Star Wars’
President Obama wrapped up his final press conference of the year Friday by telling reporters at the White House that he had to get to a showing of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
“OK, everybody, I got to get to ‘Star Wars,'” Obama said from the lectern as he waved off more questions at the White House briefing room, smiling widely as reporters yelled out more queries.
“Merry Christmas, everybody,” the president hollered at reporters after leaving his microphone, before disappearing from the room.
