Michelle Obama's message to frightened Americans: 'All we have is hope'


It remained a mystery until the former first lady finally opened up about the gift exchange in her recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show. "The thing I learned in those eight years is that home is where we make", Michelle said. She gets ecstatic every time she sees the former first lady on TV, shyly telling her mom, "She's brown like me!"

Malia Obama, 19, probably isn't too happy with her bedroom space this time around, unlike her younger sister. To love each other, to take care of each other, to show empathy - and you can't do that only when people make you feel good or safe. "She's got like a living room area and a bedroom and she designed it, so he's really hating on her", Obama said. DeGeneres's wife, Portia de Rossi, shares DeGeneres's lifelong admiration of Dian Fossey, who dedicated her life to mountain gorillas and conserving their habitat. "And that's the truth of who we are, so you can't lose sight of that".

DeGeneres talked about how a significant number of people is frightened by the current events unfolding in Washington, D.C. Mrs. Obama told the audience not to let Washington D.C. politicians dictate how they should live their life, but to continue to show empathy and compassion. That's not necessarily who we are. "And the dogs, Bo and Sunny, don't know what a doorbell is so the doorbell rings and they're like 'Um, I never heard that before, '" Obama said.

Turning to the political climate, DeGeneres asked Obama about her take on what is happening in America right now.

Michelle Obama made a rare post-White House appearance Thursday to celebrate Ellen DeGeneres' birthday.

"Sasha actually killed in this house", Obama said. I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you're going to do this, they're going to stand here. She rolled out on a gift electric scooter that had a basket filled with coupons.

And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box.

"Oh yea...the Tiffany's box", Obama responded. "And I'm thinking, do we take the picture with?" she continued. The host points out that Mrs. Obama looked visibly confused.
