Guest of James Corden’s “Late Late Show”, the former US president recounts the lack of intimacy suffered by his wife and daughters throughout his two presidential terms
“The fact that in adolescence they were followed by secret service agents when they had a date, I think it probably extinguished their interest in public service,” Obama jokes. “They still have PTSD from guys talking through their ‘bracelets’ while trying to go to a concert.”
Although his daughters do not seem to follow in his footsteps in politics, they do remain very active participating in demonstrations and various forms of activism.
“I think they will probably find other ways to serve instead of running for office, but you never know. If they decided to do it, I would obviously be extraordinarily proud of them.”
From their arrival at the White House, the Obamas were very clear with their daughters: “Look, you have to make the beds. You have to wake up,” explains the former president who was told.
“If you ever thought you were more special than everyone else, my mother-in-law always had the best answer about it: ‘You do realize that you haven’t done anything, right? The only one. The reason we are here is because your parents did things “.
To this day, Barack Obama says he is proud to see that these lessons have not been lost for his daughters.
