As the President of the United States, Barack Obama has a lot of perks.

A spanking gorgeous personal plane is just the start and his daughters Sasha and Malia can personally meet Pope Francis.

There’s one thing the leader of the free world can’t do though, and that’s set his daughters with a meeting with Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

As per ESPNFC.com, Obama was at the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative Town Hall in Buenos Aires and he revealed his two daughters asked him if they could see the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

“I also wanted to bring my daughters here so they could see the beauty and the vibrancy of this city,” Obama said. “They’ve already met one famous Argentinean—His Holiness Pope Francis. Now they want to meet [Lionel] Messi, but I could not arrange that.”

Being the most powerful person on earth has a lot of privileges but even the POTUS have to wait for the “Atomic Flea.”
