The President was obviously upset and tried to banish the fly with his hand. During the incident, Obama talked about health care in one of the White House halls.
“We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals,” said the PETA spokesman, adding that he already sent Obama a device that helps catches flies and then allows their release in the nature. “We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.”
“Throughout life I was a lawyer, professor, senator and now president of the United States. I can say without hesitation that the most difficult job, most rewarding that I had during my life on this earth is to be a father to Sasha and Malia”, said Obama, in front of 300 people gathered in a hall in Washington.
Father’s Day was celebrated Sunday in the United States. Obama, who was raised by his mother and his grandparents, took the opportunity to highlight the importance of being a good father.
After the birth of his older daughter, Malia (who will be 12 years old in early July), “I swear that I will do everything to give my daughter what I never had, a father”, said the president, admitting that the obligations of public life sometimes prevented him of being present in his daughters life as much as he wanted to.
The Presidency didn’t say how Obama, who has a daughter of nine years, Sasha, spent on Sunday. He was to receive Monday at noon more fathers and carers at a barbecue on the lawns of the White House.
The meeting between Shakira and the U.S. President was held after the Colombian singer meetings with a number of personalities in the National Security Council and Domestic Policy Council, during which were discussed issues relating to the development of protection measures provided by the state to children in the first months of life.
According to sources at the White House who wished to remain anonymous because the meeting was not entered on the public agenda of U.S. President, Shakira decided on the spot, after the talks with American leaders, to stop in the Oval Office in order to salute Obama.
Shakira is goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and is one of the great voices fighting for children’s rights worldwide.
