First Lady Michelle Obama visited “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday, following her husband’s late night stint on “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday.
Obama talked mostly about her daughters, Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, telling Kimmel that the biggest challenge with the girls is encouraging then to remain engaged during their father’s speeches. She said all the president cares about is that they “look” like they’re listing.
Reuters First Lady, Michelle Obama talked about her daughters, Halloween, and the possibility of losing the election with Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday.
“That was the instruction before he gave his speech at the DNC,” she said. “We’re backstage and they’re playing around and they’re laughing and they’re giggling and he said, ‘Just act like you’re listening to me!’”
Obama, who has been criticized for disciplining her children in public says she raises her Sasha and Malia the way her mother raised her, according to the New York Daily News. She added, “You have to smile a little bit more when you’re the First Lady.”
“But generally, they behave themselves really well,” she said of the girls.
