Barack Obama Admits He’s ‘Scared’ Of Daughter Sasha, 19: She’s A ‘Mini Michelle’


Sasha Obama takes after her mother, Michelle — and Barack Obama is aware of he must steer clear of them each. The former president joked that he’s ‘scared’ of his youngest daughter on ‘Kimmel.’

If there’s one factor that Barack Obama‘s learned over the past two decades, it’s to steer clear of Sasha Obama. The former president joked throughout his November 19 Jimmy Kimmel Live! look that he’s, frankly, sort of “scared” of his youngest daughter, who takes after spouse Michelle Obama. “Sasha is a mini Michelle,” Obama joked about his 19-year-old. “I’m afraid of Michelle and Sasha, having seen that, basically has the same look and same attitude.”

As for 22-year-old Malia Obama, she takes after pricey previous dad. “Malia is more like me temperamentally,” Obama mentioned. “We call ourselves ‘The Long Faces,’ because [Malia’s] face is more shaped like mine, and ‘The Round Faces’ are Michelle and Sasha. The Round Faces are a fiercer tribe. We’re like the vegetarians, the gatherers, and they’re the hunters. We try to keep the peace with them… I’m generally the brunt of jokes in my house.”

Obama went on to discuss his new memoir, A Promised Land, which he joked his girls will read “by the time they’re 30. He devoted the 700+ web page tome to his two daughters, and wrote about how he vowed to all the time be there for them the second they had been born. “My dad wasn’t there once I was rising up,” Obama mentioned on Kimmel. “When I married Michelle and we talked about starting a family, I said to myself, ‘I’m going to do things differently. I’m going to make sure my daughters know me, they know they’re loved, they know they’re supported.’”

“Overall, they say, I think, I did a good job on that front, but there were a lot of times that I’d be gone more than I wanted, especially during the campaign for the presidency. There were times where I’d have to leave early, in the middle of something, because some crisis comes up,” he recalled. “Maybe most frustrating, I couldn’t do normal stuff with them,” he continued. “If we wanted to go to a bookstore while I was president, you’d have the SWAT teams, they’d have to bolt down the manhole covers in front of the store.”

Obama revealed the qualities he loves the most about his daughters in a recent interview. For Sasha, it’s her ferocity and confidence. “Sasha is, as Malia describes it, completely confident about her own take on the world and is not cowed or intimidated — and never has been — by anybody’s titles, anybody’s credentials… Malia is buoyant. She’s somebody who enjoys people, enjoys life, and enjoys conversation. She’s never bored, which is a badass quality that can take you places.”
