We can’t drink enough water and Gatorade to replenish all the tears we’ve cried this week. First it was President Obama’s Farewell Speech on Tuesday, and then First Lady Michelle Obama‘s fun, but emotional appearance on The Tonight Show Staring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night on January 11.
In what was her last appearance as FLOTUS on a late night TV show, Michelle chatted with Fallon about the President’s last speech, President-Elect Trump‘s transition, and how emotional she has been over the past couple weeks as the First Family prepares to pack their bags and leave the White House next Friday, January 20.
“It’s been surprisingly emotional for all of us in ways we didn’t expect,” she said. She also explained that Sasha was absent during President Obama’s speech because she had an exam. She told her she could “say her goodbyes later.”
FLOTUS helped Fallon write a few funny thank you notes — one that mentioned the infamous photo of the Prez wearing mom jeans at a baseball game.
The show also had its emotional moments. A few fans got an unexpected surprised by the First Lady while they explained her impact on their lives during the past 8 years. And yes, we had to reach for a few tissues to muffle our ugly cry.
We also saw Michelle Obama’s competitive side while playing Password with comedians Dave Chappelle and Jerry Seinfeld. As you can see, Team FLOTUS – Fallon won!
But it just kept getting better! The show ended with the legendary Stevie Wonder serenading the First Lady with a revised version of his classic hit, My Cherie Amour.
It looked like a fun night, but we will definitely be sad to see the Obamas leave the White House next week.
TELL US: Truth time. Did Michelle Obama have an impact on your life as The First Lady?
