Watch Awkward Dad President Obama Sing Malia “Happy Birthday”
OK, it’s pretty adorable
Malia Obama got a birthday serenade to remember when her dad, President Barack Obama, decided to weave “Happy Birthday” into this year’s Fourth of July address at the White House. Apparently, Malia’s birthday coincides with America’s birthday, and since this year marked the big 1-8, the prez wasn’t about to miss an opportunity to publicly embarrass his daughter. So, after toasting the country and our troops, he took a moment to toast his daughter in front of thousands. Fast-forward to the four-minute mark to see the birthday tribute begin--and try to picture Malia burying her head with embarrassment when her dad’s voice cracks a bit on the first note.
