Daddy Time - President Obama Jokes About His Daughters Beginning to Date

Posted in: , ,

President Barack Obama says his daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, are "very sensible, and that "he's not worried about them starting to date because he's got help keeping an eye on them. Obama joked that he's "got men with guns following them around all the time," referring to the Secret Service protection that the first family has.          

This is the main reason I ran for re-election. You know I'm going to have them covered for most of high school." He added.

The president was being interviewed by comedian Steve Harvey just before the Obama family left to spend Christmas in Hawaii.

According to Business Insider,          

He and his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, have worked hard to keep their daughters out of the public eye as much as possible during his presidency.          

"They're doing great, but they grow up so fast," Obama said in the interview.          

Obama said he worries about "getting in the way of the girls just having a normal life" and said he has taught them to make good decisions about relationships.          

"What I've told them before is, as long as that young man is showing you respect, and is kind to you, then I'm not going to be hovering over every second," he said.          

"I think it's intimidating enough to be asking out the daughter of the president without me adding to that intimidation factor," he said.

Aww... daddies and their daughters...


  1. Awwwww soo sweet, at least he understands that its intimidating for any guy to come up and wanna date them, that means he's gonna respect anyone who summons courage.
