First Lady Michelle Obama says that, while preparing to depart the White House residency after eight years, she is feeling surprisingly emotional.
During a Wednesday night interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, the first lady said, “It is nuts. I feel like crying right now and I didn’t think it was going to be that emotional.”
She added, “It has been super emotional for all of us in ways that we didn’t expect.”
Mrs. Obama said she and Barack are working to make the transition to the Trump administration as smooth as possible.
“Democracy is not about party,” she stated, while recounting how courteous the Bushes were when the Obamas moved into the White House.
The first lady went on to say, “We’re all trying to get stuff done, and we’ve seen that decency and were trying to emulate that decency, so we’re going to be supportive to the Trump administration as much as we can.”
Mrs. Obama did voice a concern about how the new administration will handle her school lunch initiative.
“I hope [the school lunch program] does not get touched because that makes sense, so we have to keep doing things that make sense for our future,” she said.
