Michelle Obama and Gabrielle Douglas On ‘The Tonight Show’

Michelle and Gabby (and Stupid Jay Leno)


Our beautiful FLOTUS Michelle Obama made another appearance on ‘The Tonight Show,’ this time discussing that famous kiss-can incident with President Obama at a basketball game. She explained that she didn’t “turn him down,” but was a little freaked out seeing herself on the jumbotron,

This is the background. We had just — the girls [daughters Malia and Sasha] and I went somewhere else. We met him at the game. And I had just walked in and sat down, and I just saw my face on the Jumbotron. And I’m still a little embarrassed. So I just — I didn’t see the kiss cam part. … So I didn’t know we were supposed to kiss.”

As for politics, Michelle said that glad that her husband’s health reform bill, the Affordable Care Act, was deemed constitutional and welcomed Congressman Paul Ryan to the presidential race. “I hope that he and his family embrace the opportunity, which I know they will, to get out there and meet people in this country.”

Although obviously very busy, she stuck around to talk with Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas.  Douglas talked about her her pre-Olympics life having to move all the way to Iowa to train and the McDonald’s diet that kept her so strong throughout the competitions.

Mostly, Douglas is happy with the way her life has changed since she and Team USA kicked butt at the Olympics.

I think it’s very different and when I mean different it’s in a better way,” she said. “I mean I never thought I would be doing the show with the First Lady or even you, Jay!”

Oh, Gabby.

The Obamas Get Caught On The Kiss-Cam



President Obama took a little time off from the campaign trail to catch a pre-Olympic basketball exhibition game between the U.S. men’s team and Brazil. He sat front row with wife Michelle and their oldest daughter Malia, and was caught off guard when he appeared on the jumbotron’s kiss-cam. Instead of actually kissing, they just hugged and were met with boos from the crowd.


The second time around, they were encouraged by Malia to kiss and the Prez went for it. This time they got cheers and there were a couple of chants of “four more years!” I love the faces on the Secret Service Agents behind them. I’m sure they’ve seen that all before. Like any other kid, Malia looked a little embarrassed when her parents started dancing in their seats. They humiliate their kids in public, just like other parents too.

Now, THAT is sweet.

I think it’s safe to say we’re a little jealous of Michelle here.
