WATCH Obama Gets Laughs With 'No More Campaigns to Run'

An awkward moment during the State of the Union came when unexpected applause turned into a slight against President Obama.

But he turned it around and, with a smirk, added an off-script line back at his detractors.

Towards the very end of the nearly hour-long speech, President Obama said, "I have no more campaigns to run," and while he paused between sentences, some applause came shortly after.

After the president realized the jab, he made one of his own.

"I know 'cause I won both of 'em," he said, referencing his two presidential elections. That drew laughter and applause from the crowd on the House floor.

Unlike previous States of the Union, it was very clear whenever the president went off script because the White House released the full speech online moments before Obama took the podium.
