Obama tells daughters to `at least act like they`re listening during speech`

President Barack Obama has just one request for his daughters Sasha and Malia when he gives a speech – not to look bored.



New York: President Barack Obama has just one request for his daughters Sasha and Malia when he gives a speech – not to look bored.

Michelle joked about her husband’s only request to his children when he’s making a speech – “Just act like you’re listening to me!”

“That was the instruction before he gave his speech at the DNC,” the New York Daily News quoted her as telling Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night’s show.

“We’re backstage and they’re playing around and they’re laughing and they’re giggling and he said, ‘Just act like you’re listening to me!’” she said.

Even under the watchful eye of the Secret Service, keeping two adolescent girls in line is no easy task, Michelle admitted.

“The whole time, I’m clapping and looking over at them and I’m like, ‘Smile. Smile.’ and they’re like, ‘Oh, OK’,” she said.

Prodded about disciplining her kids in public, the US commander-in-chief’s wife said that she does it the same way any other mother would, but, “you have to smile a little bit more when you’re the First Lady.”

“But generally, they behave themselves really well,” she added.
