President Obama Tells Ellen About Malia Going Off to College

President Barack Obama makes his first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Friday (February 12).

The 54-year-old President of the United States opened up about fights with the first lady, advancements in LGBT rights, being depressed by Washington, D.C., and much more.

Barack also discussed his daughter Malia going off to college in the fall.

“It’s hard,” he said. “As Michelle reminds me, our job is to prepare them not to need us and both of my daughters are wonderful people. And Malia is more than ready to leave, but I’m not ready for her to leave. I was asked if I would speak at her graduation and I said, absolutely not because I’m gonna be sitting there with dark glasses sobbing. Yeah she’s one of my best friends. It’s gonna be hard for me not to have her around all the time. But she’s ready to go. You can tell. She’s just a really smart, capable person. She’s ready to make her own way.”
