On Thursday morning’s “Ellen,” Michelle Obama gave her very first live interview since she left the White House a year ago.
And in just the first few minutes on air, Michelle couldn’t help but tell a BIG lie about herself and Melania Trump…and “The Gift.”
If you recall, on the day of Donald J. Trump’s inuguaration, Melania Trump graciously presented a present to Mr. Obama — from Tiffany’s in New York City.
It was a lovely gesture. But you wouldn’t have known it from Michelle — who didn’t seem pleased at all. In fact she acted like she had been handed a bag of dog poop…
No gratitude. No thanks. Just a horrified Michelle trying to get rid of it.
Well Mrs. Obama finally had an “explanation” for her infamous reaction, and told Ellen quite the story…
As CNN reported:
Former first lady Michelle Obama relived an awkward Inauguration Day gift exchange during her first television interview since leaving the White House.
“Well, there’s all this protocol,” Obama told Ellen, describing what happened when the new first lady, Melania Trump, unexpectedly handed her a Tiffany’s box at the front steps of the White House on Inauguration Day last year.
The former first lady said the gift was a “lovely frame.”
“I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you’re going to do this, they’re going to stand here. Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like OK. … What am I supposed to do with this gift?” Obama said.
“No one would come and take the box,” she said, “And I’m thinking, ‘Do we take the picture with (it)?’ “
“Never before?” “Awkward?” Melania broke “protocol”? Oh really….?
Well there’s just one problem with that. It DID happen before, in January 2009 when — you guessed it — MICHELLE OBAMA herself handed a gift to outgoing First Lady Laura Bush.
Here’s how that exchange looked:
That’s funny…it didn’t look awkward at all to me. Laura wasn’t shocked, didn’t react with “bitchy resting face” like Michelle, or look hurriedly around to ditch it.
Mrs. Bush, who had already hugged and politely kissed Mrs. Obama, did so again after receiving the gift and thanking her for it. Laura then managed to hold on to the gift while greeting Mr. Obama.
So much for Michelle’s claim that this had never been done before, or that Melania had somehow broken “protocol” and perhaps even insulted Mrs. O.
She told a complete LIE to Ellen and millions of Americans — in her very first appearance since becoming ex-First Lady.
Now that I have done basic research that the Mainstream Media was too lazy to do — and busted one of their leftist icons — do you think they will bother to tell you about it?
The liberal media will NEVER report Moochelle’s LIE…PLEASE SHARE THIS everywhere to expose the TRUTH…
