The Obamas, who just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary, entered the White House when Malia was 10 and Sasha was 7 years old, becoming the younger person to ever live in the residence.

“The minute we had kids, it was like, ‘Where are you going? And how far?’ and you start measuring. It’s like, ‘how many diapers did you change?’ And ‘Oh, you’re golfing? Oh, you got time to golf!'” she said.

“That’s when all the measuring starts because you got this project, and guess what? Little kids, they’re terrorists. They are. They have demands…and you love them more than anything, but you can’t blame them…so you turn that ire on each other,” Mrs. Obama added.

The Obamas, both alumni of Harvard, met at a law firm in Chicago and married three years later, but it wasn’t love at first sight for Michelle.

“In my experience, you put a suit on any half-intelligent black man and white people tended to go bonkers. I was doubtful he’d earned the hype,” she wrote in her 2018 memoir “Becoming.”
