David Letterman

With the former president appearing as the first guest on David Letterman's upcoming Netflix series, "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction", he is featured in a new clip, released Wednesday. " "Then Sasha pulls me up, which surprises me because she always mocks my dancing but I have dad moves". The subject? Former President Barack Obama recalling the time Prince asked his daughter Sasha to dance on stage during a private performance. "And Prince asked Sasha [Obama's daughter] to come up and dance - and she's an excellent dancer", he said, in conversation with Letterman.

Barack Obama has "dad moves", and he knows it. Obama guesting on Letterman's first episode will make it his first official talk show appearance since he stepped down from presidency. "I have 'dad moves.' And I think the key is what we call 'staying in the pocket, '" he says, making the audience laugh. "You gotta stay in the pocket, because I think everybody here knows dads who get out of the pocket". This will be Obama's first talk show appearance since he left office.

Subsequent guests on the monthly series include Jay-Z, Tina Fey, and George Clooney.
