In his first interview since the election, President Obama admitted to ABC News’ Barbara Walters that he wanted “men with guns” around his daughters as they begin dating.
Obama’s daughter Sasha is 11, and Malia, with her first cell phone at 14, is beginning to get phone calls from boys.
“We joke sometimes about how Malia’s getting to the age now, and boys start calling and, you know, sort of, I always talk about how one of the main incentives for running again was continuing Secret Service protection to have men with guns around at all times…,” said Obama.
While the interview aired on Nightline on Dec. 26, it was apparently recorded prior to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Since that time, Obama has called for policy changes pertaining to gun laws and more gun control measures.
Walters promoted the show’s interview with a focus on the Obamas’ marriage, and while paraphrasing the president’s comment about the girls, left out the reference to ‘men with guns’.
