Future Boyfriends of Sasha & Malia Need to Step Back!


In an interview with Newsweek magazine President Barack Obama opened up about how his family deals with their new found fame, and his plans for his daughters' dating future.

"You know, the nice thing is that, partly because of temperament, partly because of Michelle's unbelievable parenting skills, I've just got some happy, normal kids," President Obama says about daughters Sasha and Malia. "And all that stuff that's going on around them, they just kind of miss. We have not seen any effects, any fishbowl effects, yet on them."

The President goes on to explain that his children's response to media attention may change as they get older and even jokes about his daughters' future when they begin dating!

"Now, I worry about them when they're teenagers where, you know, you're already embarrassed about your parents and even more embarrassed on TV all the time," he tells Newsweek. "And dating I think will be an issue because I have men with guns surrounding them at all times [laughter], which I'm perfectly happy with, but they may feel differently about it."

President Obama had a chance to see 'Star Trek' at the White House, and he reveals that growing up he was a big fan of the television show.

"So 'Star Trek', we saw this weekend, which I thought was good. Everybody was saying I was Spock, so I figured I should check it out," he says. "I used to love "Star Trek". You know, "Star Trek" was ahead of its time."
