In an Access Hollywood exclusive interview, Senator Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, along with daughters Malia, 10 and Sasha, 7 open up about rules, what it is like for friends to meet dad, communicating on the trail, potential plans for moving into the White House and more.
The four-part interview will air on Access Hollywood, Tuesday, July 8, Wednesday, July 9 and Thursday, July 10.
Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos caught up with the Obama family on July 4th in Butte, Montana.
Now that the Primary is over, the Obamas manage to get more family time together explains Michelle. “Barack is home at least once a week. We’re really doing family stuff like bike rides, swimming, tennis…”
The girls also give advice to their dad about everything from etiquette to fashion. One time when a friend of Malia’s came over, he shook her hand to say hello. Malia recalls telling her dad, “You really don’t shake kids’ hands that much…You just have to wave or say hi.”
When asked what they do that makes mommy and daddy mad, both girls were quick to comment. Sasha says ‘whining’.
Malia explains, “Arguing is the worst thing because then they sit us down and say, “You know you guys are the best thing that you have in your life.” We’re never going to get something as good as each other.”
