The one and only sitting President of the United States sat down with retired Yankees player, Derek Jeter for a conversation about their social impact, younger selves, retirement and, yes, dating the First Lady. Obama again showed us that funny side that he’s let shine through in his final year as the president, and we love him for it.
POTUS has shared a few tidbits in the past regarding how he courted Michelle, but he let Jeter know that she definitely wasn’t marrying him for his money because his car door literally had a rust hole in it when they met. Ah, as if we didn’t already know the Obamas are relationship goals.
Obama also reflected on his life as only the President can in his final year. He joked that maybe if 15-year-old Barack had spent more time on his studies, he might have amounted to something. We think he did all right though. It’s just funny imagining a young Obama “getting by on his charm and wit,” instead of studying.
He also made some jokes at Jeter’s expense telling him, “for a baseball player, you were old, man, let’s face it. We saw you trying to run around those bases.” We seriously love final-year Obama.
We’re definitely looking forward to some post-presidency interviews with POTUS. He’s just getting better with age. And as his term draws to an end. Although, it’s likely he’ll never top his “Obama out” mic drop.
