President Obama Gives Heartfelt Father's Day Speech About Father He Barely Knew


President Barack Obama gave a touching Father's Day message, in which he discussed the demanding role of a father in a child's life along with the dad he never knew.

The president told viewers that there can be no substitute for the "love and support, and most importantly — the presence of a parent in a child's life."

Barack Obama didn't meet his own father, Barack Obama senior, until he was ten years old. He was killed in a car accident in 1982.

He highlighted how being a good parent "isn't easy," but he strives to set an example for fathers everywhere by maintaining a strong marriage despite the incredible pressure of his job.
