The moving trucks have arrived and President Obama is making his last rounds at the White House.  Get his final surprises for his staff inside...

He's been surprising everybody these last few days, from Joe Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom to kids at the local D.C. homeless shelter who the Obamas donated Sasha and Malia's playground set to.  Wednesday afternoon, POTUS popped up at his Press Secretary Josh Earnest's last press briefing before the Administration leaves office. Check it above.

 

In less than 48 hours, the Obamas will be jetting to Palm Springs for their first vacay as civilians in eight years, immediately after Inauguration.  And when they get back, they're coming back to brand new digs.

As previously discussed, the Obamas copped a new home in Washington D.C. that is gorgeously appointed and plenty of space for the family of 4.  It's even being outfitted with a special office per Mr. O's request.

The moving trucks were spotted outside the new digs on Wednesday as their new home was being unpacked:

We can't wait to see what civilian life has in store for them.  We do know, according to her aide, Mrs. Obama will be taking her time getting back to work.  After the couple's long and warm vacay in Cali, Michelle Obama reportedly plans to form a small staff to continue her work for girls and children.  And she's writing a book -- the first of many -- and has already been offered a few multi-million dollar advances.

Meanwhile, POTUS spent one of his last full days in office still working hard.  He commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning, the U.S. Army private convicted of leaking thousands of classified reports to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. Her sentence has been sharply reduced and is set to be released this May instead of year 2048.

The White House reports:

“At its heart, America is a nation of second chances.” With 209 commutations and 64 pardons, President Obama just gave 273 deserving Americans a second chance. With 1,385 total commutations over the last eight years, the President has now granted more commutations than any president in our nation’s history.

Wow.
