You know, being the president of the United States, the bona fide leader of the free world, must be pretty tough. That’s not just because of all the speeches, the handshakes and the babies that need kissing. Nah; the real reason being the president is such a difficult job is because of all those secrets you have to keep. I’m not sure I’d be able to keep a lid on it – I’d perjure myself the second I settled my backside into the Oval Office’s swivel-chair and opened my mouth to talk to the press.
Think about all the stuff you have to keep hush-hush in the name of national security and international stability: the nuclear codes, CIA operations overseas, and most importantly of all, the location of all those alien bodies and spacecraft parts that the Men in Black have got stashed away in Area 51.
That must be why, even though you have to relinquish an awesome amount of power after two four-year terms, it must be something of a relief to not have to be the president any more. You can finally just live as regular guy, and not have to worry about spilling some seriously important beans every time you get drunk and talk to someone at a dinner party.
After stepping down from the presidency earlier this year, and handing the reigns over to Republican leader Donald Trump, Barack Obama seems to be enjoying some much-needed downtime with his spouse Michelle and their kids. However, it now looks like he might have let his hair down too much: it seems like Obama has accidentally leaked the sex of Beyonce and Jay Z’s twins to the public. Hey, it’s not the nuclear codes, but it’s the next-most explosive thing!
After rapper Jay-Z had the great and historic honour of becoming the first recording hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, former president Obama recorded a short speech in which he praised and mockingly roasted Jay for his impressive achievement.
However, attentive viewers who watch the video closely noticed that Obama explicitly mentioned the word “daughters” in the speech, which has only added fuel to the heated speculation about Queen B’s pregnancy. Obama stated, “Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s gonna have me beat once those two twins show up.” Hmmm … I have to say, that sounds pretty damn telling to me! I think Obama’s just given the game away early!
Predictably, Beyonce’s many fans went berserk trying to work out exactly what Obama was insinuating when he made this comment, and many took to Twitter to exchange theories about the validity of the word “daughters.” One commenter wrote “Did Obama out Beyoncé as having twin girls? Otherwise, his comment about Jay beating him in terms of number of daughters doesn’t make sense.”
Obama already has two daughters of his own, Malia and Sasha Obama, while Jay Z already has one, Blue Ivy. However, in light of Obama’s words, it seems clear that at least one other is on the way.
