The 44th President spoke to everyone about the book as well as more personal information about himself and his family on different shows and podcast across the US.

On Thursday, December 17, while talking on the Bill Simmons Podcast, Obama announced that his daughter Malia's boyfriend Rory Farquharson lived with his family for months at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

While at first, the former POTUS said he did not want to like Rory but he turned out to be a nice person and the two men clicked in no time.

'There was this whole visa thing, he had a job set up, and so we took him in. And I did not want to like him, but he is a good kid," Obama said on the podcast.

The former president had some nice anecdotes about quarantining together, including teaching card games to Rory and his daughters, Malia and Sasha.

'Maybe teaching Malia and Sasha, and Malia’s boyfriend who was with us for a while, spades and then having some spades games,' Obama said when asked about a fun quarantine moment.

"And teaching them how to properly trash talk and slam the cards down," he added.

But he also discovered that Malia's boyfriend's nutritional habits were much different from what he had grown used to dealing with on a daily basis.

Overall Obama seemed to look at the quarantine through an optimistic eye remembering the unexpected time he was able to spend with his daughters.

'It is a blessing because all the teenage stuff is kind of gone now. They are just back and they love you again and they wanna spend time with you again," Obama said.

Malia Obama and Farquharson met while attending Harvard back in 2017 when Malia was a college freshman and they attended a tailgate party together for the infamous Harvard-Yale rivalry game that fall.

They then spent the 2019 Christmas holidays together in London.

The 22-year-old Rory is the son of an accountant and the chief executive of an investment company.
