Before retreating to his own private Father’s Day weekend, President Barack Obama wished Americans a happy one.
Dad to daughters Sasha and Malia, Obama lamented that his own father was an absentee and says he’s still working to be a better father.
“Being a good parent â€“ whether youâ€™re gay or straight; a foster parent or a grandparent â€“ isnâ€™t easy,” Obama said in his weekly address. “It demands your constant attention, frequent sacrifice, and a healthy dose of patience. And nobodyâ€™s perfect.”
