Like the rest of the world, the president also likes the catchy single by Korean pop sensation Psy — and loves doing the goofy dance in front of his girls! But Sasha and Malia are not impressed — read on for the hilarious story.
President Barack Obama loves to get down to Psy‘s single Gangnam Style, and has even mastered the signature dance. But his daughters, Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, are completely embarrassed by their dad’s goofy moves.
“They’re cooler than I am. There are things I like that they think are cheesy, like Gangnam Style. I love that,” the president told People magazine.
His wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, is also not a fan of the president’s dancing skills.
“That’s a little embarrassing,” she told the magazine. And even though Barack Obama can do the dance, he said he wasn’t going to bust it out in front of anyone — but that he “absolutely” dances the goofy gallop just to embarrass his daughters.
Will Barack Obama Embarrass His Daughters When They Date Too?
President Obama has made jokes that he will purposefully make sure the Secret Service keeps boys away from his daughters — but in reality, he is confident they will find strong male partners.
“They’ve got a wonderful role model in their mom,” he said. “They’ve seen how Michelle and I interact — not only the love but also respect that I show their mom. So I think they have pretty high expectations about how relationships should be, and that gives me some confidence about the future.”
“I joke about this sometimes, but the truth is they are smart, steady young women,” he added.
Even if the president likes to dance around to embarrass his daughters, at least he won’t be too protective when it comes to them dating.
