The Oprah Conversation: President Barack Obama

*In the latest clip released from “The Oprah Conversation: President Barack Obama,” available to stream for free on Apple TV+ until December 1, Obama talks Oprah Winfrey about the different standards that he and First Lady Michelle Obama were held to and held themselves to while in office.

“Truthfully, Michelle and I, we felt that we should have higher standards in terms of how we behave, and ethics, and fidelity to the truth,” he said.

“Part of it, undoubtably, because we were firsts and felt very much the need to exceed expectations rather than just meet them.”
