While Obama said he’ll help his former vice president in “any ways” that he can, he said Biden “doesn’t need” his advice. Obama added, laughing, that he’s not planning “to suddenly work on the White House staff or something.”
King then asked Obama, “No Cabinet position for you, Mr. President?”
The topic sparked more laughter from Obama, who said in response, “There are probably some things I would not be doing ‘cause Michelle would leave me.”
"She’d be like, 'What? You’re doin' what?'" he said, referring to former first lady Michelle Obama.
During the interview, the former president also recalled his and his family’s experience leaving the White House in early 2017.
“When the presidency was over, two things happened. One was, objectively, I just had more time,” he said.
"But two," he said before going on to discuss his wife’s experience, "is that she was able to let go of some of the stress of just feeling as if 'I've got to get everything right all the time. I'm being watched all the time.'"
"You know, her releasing her breath that I think she had been holding for close to 10 years at that point," he added.
