In your bestseller book Convert, Michelle Obama could reveal more about her time in the campaign campaign and in the White House than would be convenient while she had taken the First Lady title. And on Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel, put this new honesty to the exam, throwing some hard-hitters as: "What famous non-relatives you write more?" (Oprah and Gayle recently) and "Did Bo knew it was the white House Can?" (Yes). The interview also revealed that, despite "rent" and free services, the presidential family pays their own food. While Obama feels that this is just for the taxpayer, it's a bit strange to think, especially considering that the First Lady does not receive a salary. Charismatic as usual, Obama responded to Kimmel's questions and also his reasons for her and her family to return and save everyone. But she also heard some emotional honesty in the light conversation, explaining that as a member of the presidential family, he received zero time to process what happened every day. Therefore, writing Convert It was a valuable opportunity for her to finally do it:
"In the last decade there was no time to really think what happened. I write about how the week would begin, something amazing that would happen and, at the end of the week, I forgot another amazing thing … We were just flooded. So, leaving the White House you need That time to swing and say what happened? What was this? And this book allowed me to do that and really understand that those eight years meant to me personally and how they fit in the context of the rest of my life. "
Kimmel then made Obama recite some more acceptable ridiculous phrases to say now that he is not the First Lady. When I was joking that the Obamas used Netflix's password for Laura Bush during her eight-year term at the White House, she left her side ("Séntoo, Laura"), she felt almost quaint. You can see why many people are obsessed with Michelle's friendship with George Bush, since the closest thing to current Lady First came to her predecessors is paraphrasing her speeches.
