This is one way to earn a "Not cool, Dad..." comment from your daughter: Talk about her new braces while giving a speech.

But President Barack Obama did just that Thursday while delivering remarks in Kansas City at a fundraiser for Senate candidate Robin Carnahan.

"You know, the — I don't have teenagers yet — Malia's just turned 12," said Obama, according to a pool report. "She's my baby. She's going — even though she's 5'9" now, she's still my baby.

Got some news for you, Barry...

Nice going, Dum-BO!
