MILAN — “I’m enjoying being in my own house. I’ve been fighting with Michelle to get more closet space,” joked Barack Obama when asked about his life far from the White House. The 44th President gave an insight on his current life during his attendance at the Seeds&Chips Global Food Innovation Summit, held at the Rho Fiera Milano fairgrounds.
Obama said what he misses least of his mandate is the sense of isolation due to security concerns. “You live in what’s called the bubble; it is a very nice prison, so you don’t have the freedom of movement,” he said. Apparently, the feeling is not completely gone, though. “Now I’m only captive to selfies, which is almost as bad,” he added with a laugh.
