First Lady Michelle Obama encouraged American families to enjoy their food over the holiday weekend and not to worry about "how much you eat."Meanwhile, her husband pretends he's deeply religious or something.
Obama, who is spearheading a nationwide campaign against childhood obesity, explained to 20/20 host Barbara Walters that "this is the time" to let go a bit.
"I would urge people to use this time to come together, as families and community, and don't take it for granted. Be kind to each other and laugh a little bit. And don't worry about how much you eat. Just enjoy it," she said.
She later added, "Have pie! Eat the dressing!" when prompted to explain her comment.
Praying and reading the Bible are part of his everyday life, President Obama said in a wide-ranging interview broadcast Friday.I guess since they've been without a church for nearly three years they have to make up for it at home.
Speaking with Barbara Walters, Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama also described how they involve their daughters in daily prayer.
"Michelle and I have not only benefited from our prayer life, but I think the girls have too," the president told Walters. "We say grace before we eat dinner every night. We take turns."
