‘Gentlemen, take tips’: Obama reveals how he romanced Michelle on first date in toe-curling interview (but it’s only a stunt to raise cash for his re-election campaign)
Dating can be a nerve-wracking occasion for any new couple, but it seems the President of the United States managed to impress the First Lady from the first date.
Barack Obama took Michelle for lunch at the Art Institute of Chicago in Michigan, before a leisurely stroll to the movies to watch a 1989 Spike Lee film which had just been released.
The Obamas gave an interview recalling the first time they went out for dinner as a promotion for a competition the president’s campaign is running, offering winners the chance to dine with him and his wife.
The 1minute 40 video clip posted online begins with Michelle Obama recalling: ‘It was a cool date, we spent the whole day together, he was showing me all facets of his character. We went to the Art Institute.’
At which point Barack Obama, wearing a white shirt and striped tie, nods enthusiastically, points his finger at the camera and says: ‘Art – guys out there, it impresses people.’
