On January 20, America said out with the Trumps and in with Joe Biden’s much cooler family—one with style, dance moves, and zero interest in holding positions in the president’s administration. To be honest, all it took was a tuxedo, some pastel coats, and a pair of sneakers for first daughter Ashley Biden and her nieces, Natalie, Maisy, Finnegan, and Naomi Biden, to steal the show at the inauguration.
Despite not receiving any sort of welcome from their predecessors, the Biden women are looking back for guidance on how to handle life in the spotlight, just not from Donald Jr., Tiffany, Eric, or Ivanka Trump. In a new interview with Today, the Bidens revealed they’ll be taking some cues from Sasha and Malia Obama.
“[We’ve] had the privilege of being able to see two of our friends navigate eight years of what was really difficult and they did so so beautifully and they came out so grounded and humble and they’re so smart and driven,” 21-year-old Finnegan said in the pre-inaugural interview with former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager. “So I think we can only take advice from them.”
Of course, things could get awkward when the former first daughters return to their old home, Finnegan notes. “They’ve been so nice and offering advice to us and support,” she continued. “So it’ll be weird, though, when they come to the White House to hang out.” You know, because those were Sasha and Malia’s bedrooms first.
The Obama and Biden families are so interlocked that Maisy recalls the time President Barack Obama served as the coach of her and the Obama girls’ basketball team—a temporary position he was eventually forced to give up. “There were a lot of teams that were like, ‘This is unfair. You can’t have the president be your coach,” the 20-year-old revealed. “But, I mean, we won. So maybe it wasn’t fair.”
