President Obama has been busy on the campaign trail the past few weeks but on one of his stops in Raleigh, North Carolina; he discussed a topic usually off-limits, his daughters and their dating life.
Malia Obama is now 18 and will vote for the first time this year. Her sister, Sasha Obama is 15 and along with the family, will continue residing in DC after he President Obama leaves office.
The President reminisced about his “most treasured times over the years” saying:
Obama was speaking with the DJ about how his most treasured times over the years were his 6:30 dinners with the family, and how recently Malia and Sasha started “ditching” the family meals.
The DJ then asked what Obama would do when the First Daughters start dating.
“Oh, that happened,” Obama replied. “The truth is, I’m pretty relaxed about it for two reasons. One is, Michelle, she’s such a great example of how she carries herself, her self-esteem not depending on boys to validate how you look or not letting yourself be judged by anything other than your character and intelligence.”
“Hopefully I’ve been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife,” Obama added.
The president joked the other reason he doesn’t worry about it is “because they have Secret Service.”
“These poor young men come by the house,” Obama said, laughing.
“They have no idea,” the DJ joked.
“Oh, they have an idea,” Obama hinted. “I describe for them.” Source
I am truly grateful for the fine example our First Family has set for the world and more importantly, my teenage daughter. They will be surely missed!
