Obama Daughters Ruin Christmas Vacation


December 29, 2014 10:00am PST

The Obamas are currently on a 17-day vacation in Hawaii, but with their daughters both teenagers now, the trip hasn’t gone so smoothly for Michelle and Barack.

Experts say that Sasha, 16, and Malia, 13, have reached the age when many teens lose interest in spending time with their parents. On rare occasions, Michelle and Barack have opened up about the difficulties they’ve had with their daughter’s growing up.

“I used to use my kids as an excuse to see all the Disney movies,” Michelle Obama recently lamented, “and now I beg them and they won’t go.”

On December 19, the girls landed in Hawaii with their parents, and looked less than enthusiastic to be there.


The images are reminiscent of the famous pictures of the girls rolling their eyes behind their father as he pardoned the Thanksgiving turkey.

sama2Since arriving in Hawaii, Barack Obama has spent as much time as he can away from his daughters. The president has reportedly played golf nearly every day, even on Christmas Eve. Perhaps he’s trying to escape a house full of angry teenage girls…

While we will probably never know what goes on behind closed doors in the Obama house, it is safe to say that Sasha and Malia are starting to rebel in some capacity.
