Obama admitted to being all thumbs when it comes to matters of ribbons and bows during a recent dinner with supporters in Washington D.C. Once, he shared at the dinner, he tried to wrangle Malia’s curls into a bun for ballet practice when mom Michelle was out of town.

Malia, then 4 years old, replied, “Yes please, this is a disaster.” See the full video below.
