*Leave it to Oprah Winfrey to get Michelle Obama talking about what makes her say “mmm, mmm, mmm” about her husband, President Barack Obama.
During her interview with Winfrey at the United State of Women summit in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, FLOTUS was asked specifically if there are ever days that she thinks, “Mmm, mmm, mmm – look at me in the White House.”
“Good lord,” answered Mrs. Obama. “Watching my husband walk off of Marine One and go to the Oval Office, it’s like, mmm, mmm, mmm. And you know he’s got that walk, right?”
“Did he always have that swag,” Winfrey asked. “Or has he gotten swaggier?”
“No, he was very swagalicious,” the first lady said. “Look, I told people this from the very start…Barack Obama is exactly who he says he is. We both are. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell people. Ain’t no surprises. We’re telling you who we are, and no tricks up our sleeves.”
Noting specific perks that come with White House living, Obama said, “There are a lot of those moments. Prince and Stevie Wonder singing in the East Room, just – may he rest in peace. I mean, those rare gifts of entertainment, the kind of music we have been able to bring into the White House. Sitting with the Pope, watching my mother and my daughters talk to the Pope.”
Winfrey and Obama also discussed bullying, feminism and achieving goals.
