Pres. Obama's brother-in-law describes their first basketball game: "He was quietly confident"

Pres. Barack Obama's brother-in-law Craig Robinson is a guest on tonight's "Piers Morgan Tonight." He talks about their first meeting. "You could tell right away he had the same values that our family did, but raised completely different," Robinson told Piers Morgan.

He also talks when they first played basketball together: "He was completely unselfish on the court. He was quietly confident." Watch the full interview tonight at 9pmET/PT (along with "Glee" star Chris Colfer).

    Hi' Piers, You are doing a great job and I allways watch your interviews. I am originally from Manchester in the Uk and used to tour in variety shows for 10 yrs.with a crazy musical comedy act named Morton Fraser's Harmonica Gang. One of our members made it big time named Dave King. This was probably before your time. I am now 88 and still performing for many senior organizations. I am not planning to try out for "Americas got Talent" as they don't want the good old music from the 40's and50's so I am keeping the seniors happy with the tunes they are familiar with. In the event you may want to see this old "Blowhart" playing the harmonica logf on to Henry Samuels Harmonica You Tube. Keep up the good work in the best of health. All the best. Henry Samuels.

    Seems to me like Craig Robinson deserved a little more of his own backstory. I felt badly for him as he seemed to be somewhat used simply for who his sister and brother in law are. Maybe could have given him the first ten minutes to tell us more about who HE is.

    I am wondering why someone on CNN hasn't done a 'comment' on President Obama's schedule? Does he ever take time off, ie, weekends at Camp David? Retreat to a private place, like the Bushes did, or Nixon did> Just wondering ........especialy after Michelle B. of the GOP was questioning the president frivolously playing table tennis...........

      ...... Or Laura Ingraham criticizing him for drinking a glass of Guinness in Ireland (I say this despite the tornado damage in Missouri).
