Obama on Not Delivering 2017 Commencement: I Needed to Spend Some Time with Michelle If I Wanted to Stay Married

‘I also wanted to spend some quality time with my daughters who were suddenly young women on their way out the door’

EXCERPT:

OBAMA: "The truth is, after eight years in the White House I needed to spend some time one-on-one with Michelle if I wanted to stay married. (Laughter) And she says hello, by the way. I also wanted to spend some quality time with my daughters who were suddenly young women on their way out the door. And I should add, by the way, now that I have a daughter in college, I can tell all of the students here, your parents suffer. (Laughter) They cry privately. It is brutal. So please call. (Laughter) Send a text." (Applause)
