Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock all your life, you know that Barbara Walters is all fluff and no substance. So nobody expects her to ask tough questions, but we don’t expect her to make us all cringe. And that’s what the 83 year old journalist did when she asked the president and first lady how they keep the love fire burning.
It was an extremely awkward moment, not just because of the great grandmotherly energy that Walters brings, but also because it felt borderline inappropriate.
“We’ve been married now 20 years, and like every marriage, I think you have your ups and your downs,” the president said after an short laugh. “But if you work through the tough times, the respect and love that you feel deepens.”
