KEY POINTS

  • Michelle Obama knows what her daughters are thinking
  • Michelle Obama had different reactions to her daughters going to college
  • Michelle Obama is protective of her daughters

Michelle Obama has a special relationship with her two daughters, Malia, 21, and Sasha, 18.

During her interview with People last year, the ex-FLOTUS revealed that she didn’t weep when she dropped off her eldest daughter at Harvard. Barack Obama’s wife said that being away from her daughters doesn’t make her sad because she has the resources to see them whenever she misses them.

The former first lady also revealed that she regularly texts with her daughters. And she and her eldest child have a special connection.

“I can text [Malia] right this second and know exactly what she’s thinking. I don’t feel like she’s away, I feel like she’s off on her next adventure, so I’m excited about her,” she said.

But it seems that the ex-FLOTUS became a bit more emotional when she dropped off Sasha at Michigan University. During her interview with “Today” earlier this month, Michelle revealed that she, Barack, and Malia all cried in the car after they sent Sasha off.

Meanwhile, Barack’s wife is also very protective of her daughters. In her memoir “Becoming,” she said that she will never forgive President Donald Trump for stirring up the false birther movement in 2011. Michelle said that Malia and Sasha were put at risk because of what Trump did.

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this, I'll never forgive him,” she wrote.

The ex-FLOTUS’s safety and security also continue to be of utmost importance to her family and Secret Security. During last year’s interview, Michelle said she still isn’t allowed to drive her own car.

Last year, a package bomb was discovered in Barack’s mail. The incident is the reason why the Obamas still have security even though they are no longer living in the White House.
