Obama not a fan of the Kardashians
US President Barack Obama's children Malia and Sasha Obama apparently love watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and their father Barack Obama doesn't like it.
First Lady Michelle Obama reveals that the girls -- ages 13 and 10 -- have taken to watching the E! show on weekends, the only time they are allowed to watch shows not related to school work.

When asked if any television shows are completely off-limits for the first daughters, Michelle Obama said, "Barack really thinks (Keeping Up With The Kardashians) -- when they watch that stuff -- he doesn't like that as much. But I sort of feel like if we're talking about it... I'm more concerned with how they take it in. 'What did you learn when you watched that?' If they're learning the right lessons, like, 'That was crazy,' then I'm like, 'Okay.'"
Michelle Obama shared her strategies for keeping her family down to earth while living in the White House.
The key for her is family dinner. "It's really the interaction that we have as a family that makes it feel like a home," she said. "It's sitting down at the dinner table and Barack's day is really the last thing anyone really cares about."
Michelle Obama furthered that Malia and Sasha do not like their father's addiction to the BlackBerry.
She said, they will say, "We're having dinner, put that down," when Obama checks his BlackBerry at the dinner table.
Meanwhile, yesterday while campaigning at Bluestone High School in Skipwith, Virginia, Obama was asked by a student if he knew pop singer Justin Bieber.
"Yes", said Obama, who also said that Bieber wasn't tall. The president then added, "He's a very nice young man."
