OBAMA’S TEARS AND TEES

DRUM - - Starbuzz -

FOR­MER US pres­i­dent BARACK OBAMA (56) con­firmed he was tear­ing up and was over­come by emo­tion when he and MICHELLE (53), took el­dest daugh­ter MALIA (19) to her new res­i­dence at Har­vard Univer­sity in Au­gust. “For those of us who have daugh­ters, it just hap­pens fast. I dropped off Malia at col­lege, and I was say­ing to Joe and Jill [Bi­den] that it was a lit­tle bit like open-heart surgery,” he said at the Beau Bi­den Foun­da­tion‘s golf and ten­nis in­vi­ta­tional re­cently, adding that he “was proud that I did not cry in front of her . . . It was rough!”. Barack, along with two other for­mer pres­i­dents, GE­ORGE W BUSH and BILL CLIN­TON, re­cently at­tended the Pres­i­dents Cup golf tour­na­ment to watch the first tee shots. The ex-pres­i­dents were in high spir­its, chat­ting to­gether and shak­ing lots of hands.
