Obama returned to the public stage with a great opening line

Ah Barack Obama, you'd miss him.

The former POTUS has kept himself relatively quiet since he handed over the reigns to Trump, but today he returned to the public eye at an event at the University of Chicago.

Obama was there to discuss youth leadership and civic duty with the students, however, he couldn't resist bringing his trademark humour to the table first in his opening statement.

You can watch the speech below:

Obama: The single most important thing I can do is prepare next generation to take their crack at changing the world
