Auma Obama on calling the president after his election: "I said well done, little brother, well done"

On Wednesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Auma Obama to the program for a candid and revealing sit down interview.

Joining Piers Morgan live in studio, President Obama's half-sister described her feelings the moment her brother rose to the nation's highest office:

"It was a moment of great pride," said Auma. "What for me was even more important and more moving was the fact that so many people from so many different backgrounds within America, the diversity of America culturally, with different language backgrounds, they all were behind him."

Older by roughly three years, Auma revealed details of the phone conversation that took place following Obama's election:

"I said well done, little brother, well done."

"Not much more to say, is there?" remarked the host.

"No, because he's always my brother," said Auma. "And he remains my brother."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the author of the new book "And Then Life Happens: A Sister's Memoir" shared memories from her first meeting with her famous brother, even recalling what he cooked her for dinner.

    Aw, this became an extremely nice post. In thought I would like to devote writing such as this moreover – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but exactly what do I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means find a way to get something completed.
