Michelle Obama Reveals Why She Hated 1st Trip to Kenya

During the interview, host Jimmy Kimmel acknowledged that Obama has repeatedly said that she wasn't running for office, but asked her if anyone "seriously approached and try to convince" her to do so.

The former first lady recounted the venture in her new memoir "Becoming" but told the story to Ellen DeGeneres on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show".

Kimmel and Obama's exchange at the first lady's expense comes after Mira Ricardel, the White House deputy national security adviser, was reportedly forced out of her job earlier this week following a public condemnation from the first lady. Michelle Obama told Kimmel of her daughters. I held her tight and my feeling was, we are moving forward.

"I've never eaten a vegetable", Obama read, even though we know that's not true of the First Lady who launched the Let's Move! health campaign.

Next, Obama revealed that she and Barack inherited more than just the Resolute desk from the Bushes.




Michelle Obama revealed she once snuck out the White House in order to celebrate the U.S. Supreme Court legalizing same-sex marriage. And while her calendar may no longer consist of state dinners and ceremonies, it appears that the former First Lady still has lots of friends in high places. "That's insane to me", Kimmel said.

She also quipped: "I'm not sure which one is Sasha and which one is Malia", adding an ad-lib: "You know?"

"I'm so angry at Barack", she wrote in her journal.

"We rushed down the stairs, and you can see the agent thinking, why are they running?"
