Over the weekend, Former President of the United States, Barack Obama received the 2017 Profile in Courage Award during a ceremony at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, Massachusetts. His wife, Michelle, attended the ceremony with him and he was full of praises for her.
Now in typical Obama fashion, the Chicago native has jokingly thanked Michelle Obama for sticking with him now they have left the White House
“I also want to thank Michelle Obama for, after the presidency, sticking with me. Because I think she felt an obligation to the country to stay on, but once her official duties were over, it wasn’t clear. I love my wife and I’m grateful for her. I do believe that it was America’s greatest fortune to have her as First Lady,” Obama said.
The couple, both Chicago natives, met in the late 1980’s at a local law firm called Sidley & Austin. At the age of just 25, Michelle was assigned as a mentor to an associate who was, you guessed it, Mr Obama.
