If there’s one lesson that nighttime talk show hosts need to learn – and let’s be real, there are a few – it’s that you cannot hope to get the better of Michelle Obama. The Former First Lady recently made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she was subjected to a rather intrusive question about her sex life with her husband and former President of the United States, Barack Obama.
During the interview, Kimmel brought up a question he has previously posed to both Obama and her husband on separate occasions. “A couple of years ago, I interviewed you in Tacoma, Washington, in front of a big group of people, you were on your book tour. We had a great talk, it was a lot of fun, and everyone was very excited to see you. And I asked you a question that night – and I actually asked your husband this question as well, and he kicked it back to you,” Kimmel began.
“I asked you that on the night that SEAL Team Six took out Osama Bin Laden at your husband’s order – did you and your husband make love that night to celebrate?”
Obama, ever the quick-quipped queen and consummate professional, didn’t miss a beat in shutting down the cringe-worthy question. “You know, I have to tell your audience that — for some very sick reason — you are very obsessed with this portion of that major historical event,” she said, before turning the entire thing back on Kimmel. “No-one else, no-one, in the history of all of the conversations I’ve had, has ever drilled down on this particular point like you, Jimmy Kimmel, so I turn that back on you.”
Despite Kimmel’s gross and inappropriate probing, Obama continued the interview, joking that he was “still that little boy in your bedroom, under the cover with the flashlight, going, ‘I hope nobody sees me.'”
All hail our reigning queen of class, Michelle Obama.
