Obama's Tattoo Plan: President Unveils Strategy to Thwart Sasha and Malia

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Like countless other dads, President Barack Obama is concerned about the fact that one day, his little girls may entertain the idea of getting a tattoo.

His plan to thwart Sasha and Malia may take the cake, though.

On Today Wednesday morning, Obama shared with Savannah Guthrie how he and the First Lady plan to respond if either girl decides to go that route ...

“What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you’re going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place,'" he said.

"And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo. Our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.”

Not sure about his tax plans ... but that's an awesome idea.

One Malia will hopefully call his bluff on with a Romney tat.

The Commander-in-Chief also discussed a recent interview in which Michelle Obama called herself a single mom, a gaffe that made some headlines.

“As somebody who has stumbled over my lines many times, I tend to cut my wife or anybody some slack when it comes to just a slip to the tongue,” he said.

But he also understands the sentiment: “You know, there’s no doubt that there have been times where Michelle probably felt like a single mom.”

Fortunately, she's not an actual single mom, as politics aside, the Obamas seem to have a relatively normal and healthy marriage and family life.

Which begs the obvious question, THGers:

What family tattoo should they get?
