Former President Barack Obama said in an interview with CBS News that first aired Sunday he would help President-elect Joe Biden in “any ways” he could as he transitions to his new role in the White House.

But, the former president told CBS’ Gayle King that a position in the president-elect’s cabinet wasn’t likely.

“There are probably some things I would not be doing ’cause Michelle would leave me,” the former president joked.

Former President Barack Obama said in an interview that aired Sunday with CBS News that he wasn’t likely to show up in President-elect Joe Biden’s cabinet but offered to help the incoming president in “any ways” he could.

When CBS This Morning anchor Gayle King asked if the former president had an interest in joining his former vice president’s administration in an official capacity, Obama laughed.

“There are probably some things I would not be doing, ’cause Michelle would leave me,” Obama said. “She’d be like, ‘What? You’re doin’ what?'”

While Obama did extend an offer to help the president-elect in “any ways” he was able, he said that Biden did not need his advice. As Business Insider previously reported, there are a number of notable people who could show up in the cabinet of the 46th president.
