The most attention-starved first lady in recent history made yet another talk show appearance this week, sitting down with “Live with Kelly and Michael” co-host Michael Strahan on the White House lawn.
Before the conversation started, the segment began on an awkward note as Michelle joined in the audience’s applause upon her introduction.
“You don’t have to clap for yourself,” Strahan explained.
From there, however, the interview quickly redirected to the Obamas’ Easter celebration the previous day. She explained the family went to church, describing the event as a rare occurrence – especially for a family about whom candidate Barack declared faith was a central theme.
“We definitely try to go to church every Easter if we can,” she said. Other Sundays, however, are apparently less about God and more about recovering from the latest taxpayer-funded vacation.
Michelle said “we really try to use Sunday as a family downtime where we can kind of breathe and catch up and maybe take a little nap every now and then if we’re not working.”
While Christians across the nation look forward to weekend services as a way to worship with their church family and receive a relevant message of faith, the Obamas are apparently more apt to dream about God than visit His house.
“We could be loungin’ and nappin’,” she elaborated.
After the family’s trip to church for Easter service, Michelle explained they enjoyed a family dinner that would undoubtedly be banned from any public school adhering to her nutritional mandates.
“We sat around really full because we ate too much,” the anti-obesity activist recalled. “It was successful; we were full.”
The interview also touched on the Obamas’ parenting style.
“We like any parents, we love to embarrass them,” she said of their two daughters. Each parent has their own way of embarrassing the kids, she added.
“If they’re, like, looking a little, you know, uninvolved in an event,” she said, “I’ll just lean over and be like, ‘If you don’t smile, I’m gonna start dancin’.”
