He's gotten a lot of press since Barack Obama released his latest memoir, A Promised Land. The 44th President spoke to everyone from Desus & Mero from Showtime to 60 minutes from CBS about the book and other personal details about himself and his family.
When Obama joined the Bill Simmons podcast on Thursday (December 17), he announced that his daughter Malia's boyfriend, Rory Farquharson, stayed with the former president and his family for months while under quarantine because of the coronavirus pandemic. He also said that he taught both his daughters and Farquharson how to play the card game spade.
"Maybe Malia and Sasha and Malia's friend, who was with us for a while, teach spades and then a few games of spades. And teach them how to talk properly and throw the cards," Obama said when asked about the funniest times that he had during quarantine.

Obama also shared that Rory grew on him while spending more time together, and said why Rory was allowed to stay with the Obama family while things were locked down.
"There was this whole Visa thing, he got a job and that's how we took him in," Obama said. "And I didn't mean to like him, but he's a good kid."
Apparently Rory raised the grocery bill because of his presence, but Obama didn't seem too bothered.
"The only thing you find is no surprise to you, Bill, because you have a son, young men eat. It's strange to see them consume food. And my food bills are up 30 percent," he said with a laugh .
