President Obama Talks About His Daughters’ Dating Lives
President Obamasat down with Steve Harvey at the White House recently for, in our opinion, one of the best interviews he’s done in awhile. Amongst the topics discussed, his daughters, Sasha and Malia, and their dating lives made for some of his best quotes.
“And the second thing is, I’ve got men with guns following them around all the time. This is the main reason I ran for re-election. You know I’m going to have them covered for most of high school…They’re doing great, but they grow up so fast.”
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. I think it’s intimidating enough to be asking out the daughter of the president without me adding to that intimidation factor.”
