President Obama has been opening up a lot lately about his plans in 2017, when his second term and lease at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave comes to an end.
In a sit-down interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, the commander in chief said his youngest daughter Sasha will have a big say on where the family lives after leaving the White House. And during a recent meeting with entertainment moguls at DreamWorks Animation, Obama shared his dream retirement job.
“At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN Sports Center’s Top 10 list,” the President said. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he was surrounded by “several studio executives” when he revealed his ideal post-term position — including Fox’s Jim Gianopulos, Sony’s Amy Pascal and CBS’ Leslie Moonves and Disney CEO Robert Iger, whose empire includes an 80 percent share of the athletic cable channel.
“Everyone had a good giggle,” a source who attended the private chat shared.
