Mother’s Day is important to a lot of people, and President Barack Obama is no exception. Our nation’s leader said thanks to “every single mother out there” with a video released Sunday and added that his own wife, Michelle is the “best mom [he knows].”
As to be expected, he started off the clip by mentioning his late mom, Stanley Ann Dunham, a single parent who gave birth to him at age 18: “My mother was the single most important influence in my life. I saw her struggles as a single mom. She taught me the values of hard work and responsibility, but also compassion and empathy.”
Upon sharing some words about his “stoic” grandmother, Obama said of his spouse, “Michelle’s the best mom I know…She combines the ability to make the kids feel completely loved with a real sense of being able to provide the kids limits. She’s very good at it. The proof is in those girls, who are magic…I’ve gotta give her most of the credit.” Not that’s the kind of husband I want someday!
