Obama Describes White House Life as ‘A Very Nice Prison’ (Mediaite)
Former President Barack Obama bluntly likened living in the White House to incarceration during an environmental summit in Milan, Italy on Tuesday.
Former White House chef Sam Kass had wondered, “Everyone wants to know about what you miss about the White House. I’m curious to know about what you don’t miss.”
“The hardest thing about being the President of the United States is it is unique in its isolation,” Obama said. “You live in what’s called ‘the bubble.’ And it is a very nice prison.”
