Maya Soetoro-Ng: My brother Barack Obama – BBC News


Maya Soetoro-Ng, President Barack Obama’s sister, has seen her half-sibling go from a “laid-back” Hawaiian teenager to a two-term president. She tells the BBC the presidency has made her brother “wiser” and a “deeper version of himself”, but expects he won’t miss the intensity of the spotlight of the presidency.

  2. Maya you know what Mr Obama changed the world since he became the 44th president of USA. The world was so happy and proud of him being involved in every countries he's was always there to help the world. As the countries is has no where else to go because of the president that took off the office the world still so sad because of that. I don't really care for the people who disliked your YouTube video because right now they end up with anything since Mr Obama lift the office. We love Obama no matter what at least he did really worked hard in his education to become the president of USA. πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ˜‡πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―

  3. Even her half sister is intelligent, smart and collected. Im not surprised. Great family. Hateful commenters from earlier: are you happy now with the IMBECILE orange moron?

  4. I feel like there's only 1 hater of obama in this comment section and they made multiple accounts to dislike and spread hate. All of them have quite similar text too such as the ,,, or … After every sentence

  5. This is Fake news by the BBC that Obama tends to rest, because he brought a house in DC (well known at this Interview) and is already causing trouble to the current Administration breaching all present of Previous Presidents to quietly live a life out side the Political sphere.
    I would have expected Obama to go to Hawaii or Chicago to get out of DC. He is the first President to remain in DC after leaving office.

  6. This comment section is sad.

    It is perfectly fine to be a Republican but it is unacceptable to be a Radical Republican Extremist.

    Radical Republican Extremists have more hate then common sense.

    Radical Republican Extremists can't argue policy because they don't know or understand Republican positions.

    Radical Republican Extremists are overly emotional people that don't believe in facts.

    Radical Republican Extremists don't understand that their belief in the facts is not required. You can't change the facts.

    The economy is stronger today then when POTUS took office eight years ago.

    Unemployment is lower today then when POTUS took office eight years ago.

    Crime is lower today then when POTUS took office eight years ago.

    Gas Prices are lower today then when POTUS took office eight years ago.

    The uninsured rate is lower today then when POTUS took office eight years ago.

    Worldwide, but not universally, the United States is more respected now then when POTUS took office eight years ago.

    POTUS isn't perfect but he is an excellent President and a decent, dignified, compassionate man. I'm very proud of him. He is one of the reasons why I'm proud to be an American.

  7. Watched this segment last week on BBC World News America.Β  Excellent insight and compelling.Β  IΒ tune into BBC World News on PBS whenever possible.Β  It isΒ among the best international news entities out there!

  8. She thinks he has gotten wiser. Boy, he must have been incredibly stupid back then because he is really really stupid now. Everyone knew Sandy Hook was a false flag. He even had the 'dead girl', Robbie Parkers daughter sitting on his knee in the photo shoot afterwards. For those unsure about Sandy Hook, look up 'We must talk about Sandy Hook'. It was set up by Homeland Security in a closed down school with a bunch of 'actors' and 'crisis actors' to take peoples guns off them. The truth is, if more people had guns, these screwballs would not be able to roam around loading and reloading guns in gun-free zones like schools, night clubs and airports etc.

  9. Obama The Great Divider. When we talk about American's the people should always be referred to we. Not us and them. Thanks Democrats. Thanks Republicans. The two Party system has failed. We need to follow the UK and Europe and have like 30 parties so we can have viable candidates to choose from instead of two to choose from. I would have preferred that we could at least have all the primary choices to choose from.

  10. "Our hearts are broken today" – Obama said. Sir, are your hearts broken too for all innocent kids and moms and daddies and grandparents and brothers and sisters died all around the Middle East by your bombs and drones? Know nothing about it? Well, for start, watch at least Snowden files (or movie) and think, how terrible crimes against humanity commited by NSA and linked agencies he revealed. As well as millions of destroyed innocent lives in Iraq, Lybia, Syria, Yemen and other poor countries. USA governemt should be brought on International Court of War Crimes.

  11. Biggest sham in politics,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,spent alot of time in pakistan,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,encourages muslims in America,,,,his birth certificate has been proven fake,,,,,who exactly is Obama? Certainly a delusion to many left wing morons.
