Michelle Obama Twerks With the “Girls,” and More Historical Firsts!


Yes, Jimmy Fallon’s big “get” with Lady M was aired last night. The New York Daily News described it thusly:

“Michelle Obama is hilarious, gorgeous alongside Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell on 'Tonight Show'”

The WaPo said:

They’ve already mom-danced and potato-sack-raced, so the logical step for Michelle Obama and Jimmy Fallon was to… squeal like teenage girls?

Sure. Because how else do you make the FLOTUS accessible to the highly desirable 18- 34 demographic that we need to pitch Obamacare to?  The skit was a guys-in-drag makeover of the old SNL classic Wayne’s World, except, not funny. Either that or I don’t know how to appeal to the desirable demographic, which I suppose is a possibility.

Anyway, the skit, including Will Ferrell, was set up as a Valley Girl sleepover and was titled “Ew!”  That pretty much sums it up. I’d say “watch it” butt I can’t, in good conscience, advise that.

It included a dance party, with plenty of twerking:

After the hilarious skit, Lady M chatted it up with Jimmy, about the White House and “stuff” including the Wee Wons, who she said want nothing to do with us (the Obamas).” She said that they just want to be left alone so they can “be normal.”

They sound just like the rest of us.

For the interview, in case you were unable to tune in for whatever reason, we wore palazzo pants, a sleeveless (because it is February) scooped-and-draped neck top anchored to our pants with our favorite radial tire boob belt.

Then we talked about the importance of signing up for Obamacare, duh, and No Child’s Fat Behind. Other than that, the only thing we learned from last night’s appearance is that MO’s first job was in a book bindery. It was a job she found to be so “ew!” that it “sent her ‘schtrait to college’.” If I understood her correctly, she managed to perform the brain numbing work in the bindery for 2 whole weeks in order to develop an appreciation for the little people who do this kind of work every day of their lives, like her Dad.

During that time she also concluded that, instead of being one of the little people, she wanted to attend Princeton and Harvard Law School in order to get her Juris Doctorate so that one day she could “voluntarily surrender” her law license in order to follow her real bliss.

And the rest, as they say, is history. I’m sure Martha Washington, and Johnny Carson, would be proud.
