Cult of the Presidency: First Lady Asks America to Wish Barack Obama a Happy Father's Day


Your daily sweet leaping Jesus comes from First Lady Michelle Obama, who sent an email this morning asking Americans to wish President Barack Obama a happy father's day:

Friend —

From coaching basketball to knowing how many Jonas brothers there are, Barack is a pretty cool dad.

But more importantly, Barack is a wonderful father and partner. No matter what's on his plate, he puts the kids first, and they know how much he loves them.

This Father's Day, I want Barack to know how much we love and appreciate him, so I hope you'll join me in wishing him a happy Father's Day:

Thanks for all your hard work, and happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there.

– Michelle

There is only one problem with this, and it is that BARACK OBAMA IS NOT MY DADDY.
