The Obama family is not enjoying the coronavirus pandemic. During an appearance on the Conan O’Brien show, former First Lady Michelle Obama complained about how she and her daughters have had their issues during the lockdown. Although she loves being able to spend more time with her two daughters, Sasha and Malia, they are not happy at all to be stuck at home with their parents.

While the “early stages” of the stay-at-home arrangement were entertaining for Michelle Obama and her family was “excited to be together,” it didn’t take long for the kids to become weary. Sasha, 22, and Malia, 19, were “itching” to get back into their normal routines shortly after.

“We were all being organized, and we would spend the days apart doing our respective work – the girls were still in classes in the spring – and so we would be working and then doing a little exercise, and then come together in the evenings,” she stated. “We would have these activities. We would have cocktails, and then we would work puzzles and play games.”

The family had a blast playing games and doing various fun activities.

“Barack taught the girls how to play spades. We actually had some organized things. Like we had an art exhibit day, where we all went off and did watercolor paintings, and then we showed it,” she stated.

The good times didn’t last long.

“Now, Conan, this was in the early stages. I think first our kids got a little sick of us, which was fine because we were pretty much sick of them. And so the summer started happening, and then we could be outside a little bit more, and we came to the vineyard, where we still are, and so there’s more room to roam around, and that was good because it helped us break it up.”

Sasha and Malia have not resumed their education as normal, but they are most certainly present virtually.

“And now the kids are back in Zoom land classes. They’re doing it remotely. And they’re no longer thrilled about being with us,” she said.

During the shutdown, Entertainment Tonight aired a report about the Obamas (video below). Thousands of people weighed in, including the following:

“Some people hate the fact the Obama’s are smart, honest, and overall Gooood people.”

“Not surprising that the Obama’s raised intelligent responsible. Charming young women.”

“Those girls are so gorgeous. My favorite presidential family. Educated, beautiful, humble, loving, and patient. Such a beautiful representation of leadership.”

“They are well-spoken, well-mannered, ivy league young women who happened to be gorgeous. I’m so disappointed that most of these comments are solely about how pretty they are, cause yes, that’s what matters.”

“Wow. Not only was she smart, but she really has a very great speaking voice. And I say the same for Sasha. I really believe that a person’s voice has something to do with the content of a human’s brain.”
