Michelle and Barack Obama Embarrass Their Kids Just Like Your Parents Did

The Obamas are indeed just like any other family. And Michelle and Barack as parents are really no different than our parents were when we were teenagers. As in, they have absolutely no problem with publically humiliating their offspring.

In Michelle Obama’s new book, she recalls the prom night of her oldest daughter, Malia. Malia told her parents that she had been invited to the prom by “a boy she kind of liked.” She implored her parents to be allowed to attend with him and for her date drive the two of them in his car. Since it was a special occasion, Malia received special permission to drive with her date to the prom. With Secret Service vehicles and detail accompanying them, of course, much to the satisfaction of Malia’s parents.

As she prepared for her big night out, Malia allegedly urged her parents to “be cool” when her date arrived to pick her up at the White House. Michelle Obama recalled that when the three of them went to greet Malia’s date, Malia was elegantly attired while her parents emerged barefoot (Michelle) and sported flip-flops (Barack). Apparently, Malia was already simmering with embarrassment, most likely to the blissful indifference of her parents. However, I’m sure her mortification did not last too long as the Obamas saw their daughter off to the prom. Presumably, Michelle and Barack then retired for the evening, no doubt relieved to know that their lovely teenage daughter would be surrounded by armed guards while on a date with a teenage boy.
