As President Obama ends his 8 years in office, he's hinted that he'll be working to rebuild the Democratic party, bringing more millennials into the fold as activists and candidates. But at a White House event for outgoing U.S. ambassadors, he jokingly shared his aspirations to get a job creating playlists for Spotify.
At a White House reception this week, U.S. Swedish ambassador Mark Brzezinski and wife, podcast host and writer Natalia Brzezinski, shared a priceless private moment with outgoing President Obama.
"I loved visiting you in Stockholm, it was my favorite trip. I plan to go back there really soon... I'm still waiting for my job at Spotify... Cuz' I know y'all loved my playlist."
"I am still swooning," declared Mrs. Brzezinski on Instagram. And as my own wife is fond of saying, "we may never have a president or first lady as cool or with a great (musical) taste as the Obama's."
Tonight President Obama invited all of the Ambassadors he personally chose to an intimate reception at the White House. I finally got the chance to thank him for the life-changing appointment to Sweden. He said word for word: "I loved visiting you in Stockholm, it was my favorite trip. I plan to go back there really soon." I told him I have the perfect opportunity for him to come visit and he told me "to send him the details on Brilliant Minds." He also declared-- "I'm still waiting for my job at Spotify... Cuz' I know y'all loved my playlist." I am still swooning. 😂😂😍🌟🌟 @barackobama @whitehouse ❤️. @symposiumsthlm So proud of Mark for serving this historic President with all his heart!! 🙏🏻🇺🇸
During his two terms the President posted several popular Spotify playlists including the one for Summer.
