Barack Obama’s feelings about his wife, Michelle, have been well-documented in photos and prose, but his recent interview with ballerina Misty Copeland for Time magazine was so full of praise for his wife, we’re kinda blushing after reading it.
During the interview, Obama waxed poetic about Michelle’s body, calling her a beautiful role model for his two daughters, Sasha and Malia.
“[There’s an] enormous pressure that young women are placed under in terms of looking a certain way. And being cute in a certain way. And are you wearing the right clothes? And is your hair done the right way? And that pressure I think [has] historically always been harder on Afirican-American women than just about any other women,” he said.
Obama already had us with the astute and sympathetic understanding of what it’s like for women, but then he laid down the romance: “And the fact that they’ve got a tall, gorgeous mom who has some curves, and that their father appreciates, I think is helpful.”
POTUS went on to explain that he has seen a change in popular culture, and that “what both white, Latino, and Black children are seeing as representative of beauty is much broader than it was when I was a kid… You just didn’t see that much representation. And that’s healthy and that’s encouraging.”
Is President Obama the perfect man? Hard to deny, isn’t it?
