#DadGoals: Here's What President Obama Thinks About Sasha and Malia Starting to Date

He shares a sweet message about Michelle and his girls

Published November 6, 2016

As President Obama prepares to hand over the keys to the White House to the next POTUS, he is looking forward to more simple problems, like his two daughters starting to date. 

Obama spoke to the Raleigh, North Carolina radio station WDCG about both Malia and Sasha have started "ditching" family dinners to hang out with friends, and possibly, with boys.

When asked what he will do when his daughters start dating, Obama answered, "Oh, that happened. The truth is, I'm pretty relaxed about if for two reason. One is Michelle - she's such a great exampled 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." Adding, Hopefully I've been a good example in terms of how I show respect to my wife."

His second reason was a bit more straightforward. "They have Secret Service," he said.

"These poor young men come by the house," he said, laughing. With the DJ interjecting, "They have no idea."

"Oh, they have an idea," Obama added. "I describe for them."
