Snapchat’s SOTU Story Captured the Event’s Best Backstage Moments

If you tuned into President Obama’s final State of the Union address last night, you caught what was undoubtedly a historic speech. But the news channels didn’t broadcast some of the most important parts—we’re talking about the adorable First Dogs playing on the White House lawn, Queen Ruth Bader Ginsburg rolling in with her #squad and the countless senator selfies.

Luckily, Snapchat provided prime access to the best backstage moments with their live State of the Union story.

We got a look at Sunny and Bo.

Sen. John McCain and presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders casually complimented each other on their “great” work.

And Michelle Obama popped up in her heavily debated marigold dress to welcome everyone and announce the launch of the White House’s new Snapchat.
