Michelle Obama On ‘The Late Show’
With the presidential primary races in full swing, the reality is setting in that the Obamas have just a little over a year left in the White House. Before President Barack Obama‘s time in office is up, the FLOTUS would like to continue working on girls’ education. After leaving Washington, she wants to continue that work.
“It’s the kind of work Barack and I want to do long after we leave the White House,” the First Lady told Colbert.
After leaving the White House, there are also some mundane things that she is looking forward to being able to do.
“I also want to do things like open a window. I want to go to Target,” said the First Lady, explaining, “I can’t open windows. One day as a treat, my lead agent let us have the windows open. It was five minutes out [from Camp David].”
When Colbert asked what advice she might give the next First Lady – or First Gentleman – the FLOTUS said, “I would say, ‘Follow your passion, just be you.'”
Colbert, with innuendo directed at former president Bill Clinton, chimed in, “I think he does.”
