Michelle Obama

The time is drawing near for President Barack Obama and his family to pack up and move out of the White House.

In an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Tuesday, First lady Michelle Obama said her teenage daughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15, will have a tough time leaving the White House.

"It's really the people," she said. "Think about it: The girls have grown up in the White House. I mean, the staff that's there – we see them every day. These are people who have helped us raise our kids. They've loved us. They've taken care of us. The minute we leave, that's it."

Mrs. Obama said it will be especially hard on the girls who spent their childhood in the White House.

The girls were spoiled and raised with very little structure by the White House staff.

The Obama's oldest daughter, Malia is already rebelling against the reality of returning to civilian life.

A week doesn't go by when Malia isn't in the news for smoking weed, drinking beer, or twerking.

"I'm sure the girls will have a tough time,” said Obama, 52.

"They think they're ready, but when you've grown up in a place ... I mean, imagine: They won't be able to knock on a door and say, 'Can I see my room?' That's not gonna happen.”

Despite her oldest daughter's rebellious streak Mrs. Obama is proud of the young women they've become.

"I'm proud of them they've really managed this so well," she said. "I mean, I just love them to death and the big thing I've always worried about was making sure that they got out of this whole. I'm just proud that they are poised, smart, intelligent young women."

    (CNN)Surrounded in the Arctic tundra. By polar bears.

    That's life for five Russian meteorologists on tiny Troynoy island in Russia, according to state media.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Cont'd ?

    Vassiliy Shevchenko, the head of the Sevgidromet State Monitoring Network that owns the weather station, told Tass news that some 10 polar bears and their cubs have gathered on the island and are dangerously close to the researchers.
    The incident began on August 31, when some polar bears killed two dogs, according to Vadim Plotnikov, the head of the weather station.

    "The girls were spoiled and raised with very little structure by the White House staff." With Michelle as their mother, I highly doubt this, Sandy.

    "A week doesn’t go by when Malia isn’t in the news for smoking weed, drinking beer, or twerking." Actually, it's been a while since we've heard anymore of these trumped up "concerns."

  • Monika Solomon

    As if they'll ever be 'regular' kids. They'll still get their free stuff.

  • NegraGata

    "A week doesn’t go by when Malia isn’t in the news for smoking weed"

    This is false - if you go find the picture, you will see that there is a white lady standing to the side of Malia with dark glasses on. Malia puts her hand to her mouth and for some reason that lady is at the right angle where it looks like Malia is smoking because her glasses are in the frame of the shot. That is why she had on the tee-shirt at the MIA festival, because she knew that what was reported was INACCURATE information.

  • Howard Alum ?

    Did you pay attention in school? Specifically, American Gov't class?????? I guess you forgot that the President has LIMITED power. Did you vote during the midterm elections in 2014????? I guess not, bc if you did, perhaps things in Congress and the House would be different. Please shut up!

  • Howard Alum ?

    ?????? the white polar bear one is funny...thanks

  • CutdBS

    Be Grafeful?!!! Most black kids can barely read and you're talking about be Grafeful? What kind of sl@very plantation talk.... nonsense? lol You can't be serious! They tried to block the Gays and Mexicans agenda but I see he found a way for them.

    They need almost 100 percent of the black vote and you all are getting nothing in return.

  • CutdBS

    Before the election it's Hope and Change. After the election it's Hope and Change for Mexicans and Gays. Blacks you got to keep voting 100% and we'll see what we can do next election! They've been playing that shell game with blacks for 50 years. Get a clue

  • Sonny Johnson

    You know your write up of half truths and exaggeration is exactly the kind of sensationalism you accuse the liberal media of using

  • Howard Alum ?

    I have a clue. You are absolutely right, every presidential candidate, senator, District attorney, councilman and mayor has made promises to change things for the Afro-American community. Some promises are kept and some not so much. Let me ask you, what has your Mayor or Governor done to help the Afro-American community. What has the mayor done to help little kids and young adults find alternative things to do after school, other then go home and watch TV or play in the streets???? Worry about what's taking place on the local level before you get to the national, bc that's where the most effective change takes place. Obama is the President of the United States not black america. So, you get a clue.

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    Sips tea and waits for response.... I'm messy and petty right now.

  • barbeez

    Oh well. Get to packing. Their eight years are up. Thank God. Plan to see wannabe model, Michelle and in love with fame, Barack on all the talk shows, tv shows and wherever else they can drum up applause. Black people love them although we're the only group that didn't benefit from Obama's presidency. Obama chose the Hispanics and gays over American Blacks. Why? He's not black. His father was a pure bred African with multiple wives. He was never in our corner.

  • barbeez

    *rolls eyes* This is going to be the excuse for all of his failures. But he helped the illegal aliens and the gays. Open your eyes.

  • Bayou Classic

    You crazy Sandrita. Them girls so ready to get the entire hell out of that White House! Eight years is long enough.

    Yeah because it was his job to single handedly fix every problem in this country while you sit on your able bodied ass complaining. What the hell have you been doing to help in your community while ur complaining about the leader of the free world fixing every problem in the entire country with two hands. Chile please.

  • QueenSuga

    Thank you!

  • Lisa daniels

    I know what he did and didnt do. I know that I needed healthcare and made sure that I could afford it. He made sure that credit card companies stop preying on college kids. He brought the war to the correct country and hurried up to bring it to and end. He showed the world that blacks could be a leader of a world power and not turn it in to some hood ?. Yeah, I am proud.

  • barbeez

    *long slow applause* Obama did nothing for the Black community. Exactly what did Congress stop him from doing for Blacks. Details, please. He appointed a Hispanic Supreme Court judge who helped give gays the right to marry. He granted amnesty to thousands of illegal immigrants. He helped kill an African leader, Omar Ghadaffi. He wants men to be able to use the same bathrooms as females, endangering our young girls. Michelle has time to get up at four am and workout and make videos with Beyoncé yet she never addressed real issues in the Black community such as teenage pregnancies, domestic violence, unemployment. We as a Black community are no better as a result of the Obama pregnancy.

  • Lisa daniels

    If most black kids can't read that is not the president fault, its them and their lazy ass parents. Foh. Even the slaves taught themselves to read. You dumb, bish.

  • barbeez

    Anyone throwing a shoe at an American president is disrespectful. If it happened to Obama, you'd be yelling racism.

  • barbeez

    And where did Malia get her weed problem from...her daddy. lol

  • Lisa daniels

    I said he dodge it and thats what made it funny. Chill out.

  • barbeez

    Hold on there missy. Hillary has to beat Trump first and then she has to stay healthy enough to make it to the White House.

  • barbeez

    So you paid to get healthcare. Hmmm. That's not free. And what about folks who can't afford it. Sounds like the insurance companies made a profit. The war on terror is still going strong. ISIS??? He showed the world that an African/white man can get a bunch of black folks to support and defend him while he sits back and does nothing for them. And you're proud of that??

    Obama continued Bush's No Child Left Behind. He only tweaked it a little, but it's basically the same. But it's up to the States and the City to enact it. Some cities have renounced the Behind Act.
    It's not the President's role to "fix" schools. Your local property taxes are paying for the schools. Talk to your alderman, march and protest like they did in Chicago. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-dyett-high-school-hunger-strike-ends-20150919-story.html
    Honest to god, do you think the President could running to the rescue of this school?

    There are soooooo many black gays and illegal aliens from over seas. Those policies have helped the trans community in our community finally be able to come out and not hide their identity. Illegal aliens from the continent of Africa is strong too. So many people visas expire and they stay. They are considered illegal. So, that policy has helped them too....so.......

  • TeeTee

    He tried to re-vamp the federal education law - not sure what it was called - but it's what we know today as Title I. Now... what the districts and schools do with it is another story.

  • TeeTee

    Most Black kids can't read? Please show me some numbers. That starts at home.

  • Howard Alum ?

    Here what Barry O has done with the little time he's had:
    JOBS - (Jump-start or business start up). An initiative to help small black businesses gain access to capital investments thanks to Titles: II, II and IV. So starts ups like the "Bae App" exist bc of this policy.

    My brothers keeper- an emphasis on helping Black males stay on track through challenges they face.

    Unemployment for the black community is at 8.3%. That's the lowest it has been since 2007. But you must understand who qualifies as unemployed. There is a difference between unemployed and underemployed.

    And let's not forget Health Care, 40 million people this year alone has signed up for health care, through Obama Care and the policy has been out for some years now. The number keeps growing.

    Everything can't be fixed in 8 years when we have YEARS of set backs that have accumulated. No one before Barry O had our backs, so do you honestly think that the leader of the free world can do it all by his self. He has so much opposition against him in Congress it's sickening. Now, let's see what changes when the next president takes office, then I bet you'll be singing Barry O praises....

  • MadameMixi

    NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND was a joke. They wanted balance in the classroom, for example, with all levels in the same class. My child who was an A student had to be dumbed down for the D student in the same class, for example. That's balance. Throwing all the kids in the same pot, so they will in fact be left behind.

    Growing up, we had all levels of education for all kinds of children, including vocational schools.

    The programs were working and that's why they were discontinued. Too many brown children succeeding.

    Don't fall for the tricks and lies of the enemies. When you attempt to help EVERYONE, you must be taken out. A leader cannot reign supreme if you're right up there with him with rights and privileges. . .

  • TeeTee

    what this shows me is that the schools are failing period. I can tell you the difference between these graduation rates and children being able to read or not is the home environment, whatever it may be. A parent who is active with their children will not allow for such a thing to happen. The school can only do so much, and after a certain age a parent can only do so much.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    " Most black kids can barely read"

    This has more to do with ATTITUDE than opportunity.
    To explain: Indian (for example) families are HUGE on education and as much as we joke about them all being IT professionals, they are generally successful - they are taught that learning is good. Likewise with Asians. Others considered minorities are taught business sense and industriousness - look at many Africans and Mexicans.
    But unfortunately, so many Black americans are taught to "floss", made to feel overly-entitled (dressing in the latest designers at 3 y/o. More focused on looking good in school than learning and IT STARTS AT HOME!
    Public Schools now-a-days are a JOKE on the whole and unless Private or Chartered extra effort is rarely made.
    If so many Black adults stopped teasing the children who show themselves studious and TRULY encourage, rather REQUIRE them to do well in school more opportunities will open up for them as a whole.
    Before you respond or discount this post... Think SERIOUSLY about it...

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    No Child Left Behind was just like Everyone Gets a Trophy in sports - The lazy, initiative lacking children were "brought along" with the harder working ones. The even sadder part is it made the hard working ones have to slow down to "wait for" the slower ones. The ones with real learning disabilities were just brought along as well with no help meaning they never learned how to work through it and were dumped into society after graduation, in effect, handicapped.
