If you were hoping to one day get Barack Obama’s number your day has come. Although, you can’t call him he is taking text messages.
The former President posted the number to Twitter Wednesday letting tweeters know that he was there to lend an ear.
The tweet comes after Michelle Obama spoke with Conan O’Brien about how Sasha and Malia were no longer thrilled about being in quarantine with their parents.
Michelle Obama virtually joined Conan O’Brien on his talk show Wednesday and shared with the comedian that while the family has enjoyed spending some unexpected time together at the beginning of the pandemic, the novelty has begun to wear off.
Michelle, 56, explained that in the “early stages” of the stay-at-home orders, she, husband Barack Obama and daughters Sasha, 19, and Malia, 22, “were all excited to be together.”
“We were being all organized and we would spend the days apart doing our respective work — the girls were still in classes in the spring — and so we would be working and then doing a little exercise, and then come together in the evenings,” she explained. “And we would have these activities — we would have cocktails, and then we would work puzzles, and play games.”
“Barack taught the girls how to play spades,” Michelle said. “We actually had some organized things — like we had an art exhibit day, where we all went off and did like water color paintings and then we showed it.”
“Now, Conan, this was in the early stages,” Michelle underscored, joking that as the weeks turned into months, Sasha and Malia became less enthralled with spending so much time at home.
“I think first our kids got a little sick of us … which was fine, ’cause we were pretty much sick of them,” she said. “And so the summer started happening, and then we could be outside a little bit more, and we came to the vineyard, where we still are, and so there’s more room to roam around … that was good, ’cause it helped us break it up. And now the kids are back in Zoom land with classes. They’re doing it remotely. And they’re no longer thrilled about being with us.”
From the looks of it the Obama’s understand the anxiety. Barack is consistantly coming up with new ideas to keep these indoor days as less stressful as possible. So if you haven’t yet texted the former President now is your chance!
