President Obama Went Full-Dad at Malia's Graduation

Malia Obama Graduates High School – and Dad Barack Says He's Got Sunglasses to Hide His Tears| politics, Graduation, Barack Obama, Malia Obama, Michelle Obama

Congratulations are due for Malia Obama, who somehow managed to go through high school with the world's most protective parents. (Can you imagine dealing with Secret Service at the same time as teenage drama and SAT prep?) The Washington Post reports that Malia graduated high school Friday.

Of course, Mom and Dad were there, but they tried to blend in like normal parents. "[President Obama] was just a total dad," the mother of a graduating senior told the newspaper. "No fanfare. You didn't know they were there." He had previously told a group in Detroit that he planned on wearing dark glasses to hide his proud-papa tears, and he gave Malia a standing ovation when she walked across the stage. According to CNN, he declined an offer to speak at the graduation because he worried he'd be too emotional. (Aww.)
