President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are stopping by “The View” Tuesday (Sept. 25). In the first preview, he talks about presidential race opponent Mitt Romney. In this sneak peek, he talks about coaching his daughter’s basketball team and the troubles in the Middle East.

Elizabeth Hasselbeck: You said Malia is staying up late. I know she’s also into tennis, but are you planning on coaching Sasha again in basketball?

President Obama: The Vipers are going to be, I think, undefeated again this year. That’s where they’re going, The Vipers.

EH: So let me ask you what’s more challenging, coaching up the girls on the court or trying to get everybody in Congress to get on the same page?

President Obama: Oh, no contest. The girls, they play like a team. [audience laughs]. I’m just saying.

Sherri Shepherd: They know team work.

President Obama: Congress could take some lessons from The Vipers…

EH: You should take them to a game.

President Obama: In terms of — they pass the ball, they high five each other, they’re doing great.


Joy Behar: And we’re back with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. Okay, I want to talk about Libya for second, because on 9-11 of this past year, our embassy was attacked there and we lost four people, including the Ambassador, and it was reported that people just went crazy and wild because of this anti-Muslim movie — or anti-Muhammad, I guess, movie — but then I heard Hillary Clinton say that it was an act of terrorism. Is it? What do you say?

President Obama: We’re still doing an investigation. There’s no doubt that the kind of weapons that were used, the on-going assault, that it wasn’t just a mob action. Now we don’t have all the information yet, and so we’re still gathering it, but what’s clear is that around the world there’s still a lot of threats out there.
