Barack Obama Talks Daughters on The Tonight Show June 2016

President Obama on Malia and Sasha's White House Upbringing: "They've Handled It So Well"

President Obama put politics aside for one night when he made a special appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday. In addition to performing a hilarious skit of "Slow Jam the News," he also talked about his daughters, Sasha and Malia, and what it has been like for them growing up in the White House these past eight years. "They've handled it so well," he explained. "They're smart and funny, but most importantly, they're kind." Of course, like any dad would, he also took a moment to gush about his eldest daughter's upcoming graduation from DC's private Sidwell Friends School on Friday, revealing that he already has a pair of sunglasses ready to hide his tears during the ceremony. He is definitely one proud dad!
