After plugging her book, Obama joined in a comedic routine where she read aloud things she was supposedly not allowed to say while in the White House, which include admitting to using Laura Bush's Netflix password and confessing to never eating a vegetable. What, were you expecting her to reveal national security secrets, or something?
President Obama said he wasn't able to join her, and Sasha begged off too, busy watching TV.
First, the lies: Obama proceeded to look straight into the camera and recite increasingly ridiculous statements, provided by the ever-helpful Kimmel.
"Becoming" is well exceeding the pace of previous memoirs by first ladies. I'm like, 'Who are you?' The game that Sasha plays with me is that, when we're with a lot of people, she'll call me, 'Mom. Mom.
Kimmel: "I knew it, I knew it".
Elsewhere on The Ellen Show, while the former First Lady tried to sign copies of her book at Costco, Ellen was being... well Ellen. "I'd ill-advisedly bought new white sneakers to wear on the trip, and within a day, after all the pushing we did, they'd turned reddish brown, stained with the cinnamon-hued dust of Nairobi", she writes. They get so mad every time I mess their names up. The tough, smart, strong, classy and eloquent Michelle Obama is peeled away to reveal a simple wife and mother who like any other women in society was enduring battles that only she could understand. "I think he's all of our freebies", she added, only further suggesting that line is, indeed, true.
