The president spent his weekend playing golf at Andrews Air Force Base on Saturday and then overnight at Camp David in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains. This wasn’t first time his first-born daughter, 16 now (and born on the Fourth of July) had struck out for the territory.
“Malia barely reached up to her father’s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm.
“In a commencement address to high school graduates in Worcester, Massachusetts, Obama said he’s practicing for what’s coming in two years. “So I’m trying to get used to not choking up and crying and embarrassing her. So this is sort of my trial run here.”’
After a birthday weekend round of golf with longtime pals, Pres Obama departed @AndrewsAirForce to Camp David for overnight stay.
