Barack Obama opens about Biden’s transition and jokes about “fearing” his daughter Sasha in “Kimmel”

Los Angeles-Former President Barack Obama Participated in “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday, talking about the transition of President-elect Joe Biden, talking behind his viral three-point shoot, and he having his daughter Sasha. He joked how he was “afraid”.

Obama did not hesitate to enjoy the current President Donald Trump, who has not yet acknowledged the 2020 elections to his former Vice President. He joked to Jimmy Kimmel, “The White House’s communications system used to be better.” If Trump didn’t leave by January, he said, “I can always send a Navy seal there and take him out.”

Obama also promoted his new 768-page memoir, The Promised Land. It sold about 890,000 copies in the US and Canada in the first 24 hours.

The former president said he wants readers to understand how he made decisions surrounding major political issues during the eight years in the presidential office, especially the financial crisis of 2008 and the Iran nuclear deal.

He also talked about the more personal moments of the book, such as navigating the balance between a good leader and a good father. Obama told Kimmel that his role as a father turned him into a better president.

He shared an anecdote about how his daughter Melia gave him another name, “Johnny McJohn John,” after being attacked by a crowd at a public zoo.

“They explain the plan to Michelle,” says Michelle, “Hong, the only way Dad disguises is if he has surgery to fix his ears,” he said.

Obama admitted that his daughters hadn’t read the book.

“You are by no means a prophet of your own land. Their attitude is,’We must do better than read your boring rants and acclaim,'” Obama said. “They promise to do so someday.”

Kimmel quoted a previous interview with former First Lady Michelle Obama and asked Obama if she was afraid of her daughter Sasha.

“Yes, and the reason is that Sasha is a mini Michelle and I’m afraid of Michelle,” Obama joked.

He said he resembled Melia and called the pair a family “peacekeeper.”
