Washington: Barack Obama has revealed that he married his wife, Michelle Obama, to improve his gene pool.
After giving the First lady’s introduction at the Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia, the 44th president of the United States went a little off-script as he gave compliments to his wife.
“I hate following Michelle. She’s so good,” CBS News quoted him as saying.
“See for you men out there who are not yet married, let me explain. The whole goal is to marry up--to try to improve your gene pool,” he added.
Praising the 47-year-old lawyer’s role to “support and honour our military families”, the 50-year-old added that “she does all this and she looks cute”.
