President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama say that humor, love and respect have kept their marriage together.
“We’ve been married now 20 years, and like every marriage, I think, you have your ups and you have your downs,” the president said in an interview with Barbara Walters. “But if you’ve worked through the tough times, the respect and love that you feel deepens.”
“And then there’s a lot of laughter,” Michelle Obama added.
The president said that everyone thinks his wife is the funny one, but, he said, “I’m funnier than people think.”
“I am,” he insisted.
The interview with Walters was taped December 11 and had been scheduled to air earlier this month but was pushed back after the Newtown shootings. It is now set to air Wednesday during ABC News’ “Nightline.”
Walters also asked the couple about the photo of them hugging that became the most shared picture of all time on Twitter.
It was taken on the campaign trail in Iowa.
“I hadn’t seen him in a while,” Michelle Obama explained. “You know, when you’re campaigning, they have, we’re two ships passing in the night, and the first time I saw him was when I walked on stage to greet him. And that’s my honey giving me a hug.”
“I like giving you hugs,” the president added.
