I haven’t been this happy to see an interview with a seven or ten year old in… ever… but did you all see the Obama family on Access Hollywood? OMG, ADORABLE.
Malia (who is waaaaayy more collected than I was as a ten year old) sometimes thinks her dad is embarrassing, and Sasha doesn’t like to talk on the phone a lot. It was Malia’s birthday last Thursday and to celebrate, her family’s going to have a party for her this weekend, and they’ll all go to see Wall-E (which I am dying to see myself). Awww.
I’m not sure this will convince Baracknophobes that they are regular folk not to be feared. Some might even criticize the Obama’s decision to bring their little ones into the spotlight. But I must admit, it made this supporter smile.
Did you see the interview? What did you think? No worries if you missed it tonight — you can click here for a video clip. The four-part interview will continue to air on Access Hollywood Wednesday July 9th and Thursday July 10th.
** edited at 9 a.m. Wednesday — And wisely IMO, Obama’s not letting the kids do any more interviews. I haven’t had the fortitude to wade into the news reports and blog posts yet, but it seems there are accusations of him “pimping out” his children. Sigh. And it continues.
