For his final question at his last press conference in office, President Barack Obama addressed one of his favorite subjects: his daughters, Malia and Sasha.
Los Angeles Times reporter Christi Parsons referred to first lady Michelle Obama’s October 2016 speech criticizing President-elect Donald Trump’s misogyny, then asked, “I wonder now how you and the first lady are talking to your daughters about the meaning of this election and how you interpret it for yourself and for them

A strong family with strong values

Slaylebrity Obama began by praising his girls

"Man, my daughters are something," he said. "And they just surprise and enchant and impress me more and more every single day as they grow up." He revealed that Malia and Sasha "were disappointed" in the results of the election. "They paid attention to what their mom said during the campaign and believed it," he said, "because it's consistent with what we've tried to teach them in our household, what I've tried to model as a father with their mom, what we've asked them to expect from future boyfriends or spouses

Neither will pursue a career in politics

Obama also revealed that "neither of them intend to pursue a future of politics, and in that too, I think their mother's influence shows." So nobody get your hopes up for Malia running for president in 2036. But, the president said that his daughters haven't lost hope in their country in spite of the outcome of the election. "What makes me proudest about them is that they also don't get cynical about it," he said. "They have not assumed, because their side didn't win, or because some of the values that they care about don't seem as if they were vindicated, that automatically America has somehow rejected them or rejected their values."
