President Barack Obama admitted in an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters on Friday night that his worst character fault is “laziness.”
Asked by Walters to name “the trait you most deplore in yourself,” the president — who was interviewed alongside his wife Michelle — responded, “laziness.”
“You’re lazy?” Walters asked.
“You know it’s interesting, there is a deep down, underneath all the work I do, I think there’s a laziness in me.
“It’s probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii and it’s sunny outside, and sitting on the beach,” Obama said with a smile.
Asked to name the trait he most dislikes in others, Obama said, “The thing actually that I most dislike is cruelty. I can’t stand cruel people.”
