President Obama Has A Sentimental Reason For Declining Speech At Malia's Graduation
President Barack Obama's eldest daughter, Malia, is planning to begin her higher education journey later this year, and with this momentous occasion, the leader of the free world knows the waterworks are imminent.
To shield himself from letting the tears run free in front of attendees and graduates, he declined the opportunity to give a speech at his daughter's graduation ceremony. "I'm going to be wearing dark glasses... and I'm going to cry," he revealed per ABC News. Malia is set to turn the tassel this spring from Sidwell Friends School based in the nation's capital.
There's no word on where the 17-year-old will further her education, but in recent months, she's been spotted on tours of Columbia University and New York University, as well as Brown University in Rhode Island.
In terms of advice that Obama has given Malia, he said. "not to stress too much about having to get into one particular college."
I hear Howard University is nice in the fall, just saying.
