Obama on fatherhood: 'It's the best job I've got'June 14, 2013 @ 9:33 am
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says being a father is the best job he's got.
Obama says a Father's Day luncheon at the White House on Friday was a great way for all the dads to celebrate the coming occasion and remember how lucky they are. Obama has two daughters, 14-year-old Malia and 12-year-old Sasha.
Fathers and their kids along with students and leaders from the Becoming a Man program at Chicago's Hyde Park Academy were among those treated to burgers, fries and lemonade in the State Dining Room. Obama spoke at the school in February.
His chief of staff, several economic advisers and his legislative affairs director sat with guests during the lunch.
Father's Day is Sunday. Obama leaves that night on a three-day trip to Northern Ireland and Germany.
