"First of all, them as teenagers, having secret service guys follow them when they were going out on dates, I think has probably shut down their interest in public service," he quipped to James Corden last year. "They still have PTSD from guys talking into their wrist microphones and glasses as they try to go to a music concert."

That being said, Michelle insisted the ladies were never spoiled despite their family's status.

"I mean, they wouldn't always be in that bubble of the White House, so they had to learn to make their beds. They had to learn to drive. They had to learn how to be compassionate, independent, responsible people so that they entered the world as responsible, compassionate, capable people," the mom-of-two previously explained. "And I think they are amazing young women because of that."
