WASHINGTON D.C.: President Barack Obama said he is in love, though he was not speaking about Michelle—but he swears she understands. “I’ve said it publicly: I love Meryl Streep. I love her. Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There’s nothing either of them can do about it,” he said at the Presidential Medal of Freedom awards on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). Obama endowed 18 people, including Streep, musician Stevie Wonder, Chilean-American author Isabel Allende, journalist Tom Brokaw and composer Stephen Sondheim, with the award, the highest civil honor in the United States.
