Unlike many wives, Michelle Obama understands exactly why her husband plays golf. This is in part because she finds her own passion in skiing, which fulfills a similar niche for many. Skiing helps her get fresh air outside of a white house that is “basically hermetically sealed”.
Michelle opened up during questions at a holiday event at the National Children’s Hospital in D.C. According to the First Lady, skiing is “great exercise. And it’s fun. And it’s a little scary, too. All at the same time.” There isn’t a more true statement about the sport, I tell you!
All famous people will tell you, it’s tough to be famous. The Obamas are on a whole other tier in this respect. According to Michelle, Obama golfs because “it’s one of the few opportunities he has to be outside, walking around like a normal person for long periods of time.”
“But when I’m skiing, that’s, like, one of the few places in the winter where I feel free. Because nobody can take a selfie with you when you’re skiing down a mountain,” stated Michelle Obama.
