Michelle Obama: 'I'm the hostess in chief'

Comments ()

Today Show correspondent Jenna Bush Hager interviews Michelle Obama about Christmas in the White House, and the first lady explains her role during the holidays is "hostess-in-chief:"

"This is the most special time to be in the White House. It’s the one time of the year when we really open up the White House. We have thousands and thousands of visitors just streaming through every day. It's beautiful, everything looks great, the smells are magnificent. So it's just special, very special," Obama told Bush Hager, who spent many a Christmas in the White House when her father, George W. Bush, was president.

The White House has estimated that some 90,000 people will have visited during the holidays this year.

"I'm the hostess in chief. We host a number of events here for a whole range of people," the first lady said.

Obama said daughters Malia and Sasha, now 14 and 11, have full lives that require a little less parental involvement, but they still enjoy the holidays at the White House.

"I think they just love the fact that the house is full of people, and friends, and music," Obama said. "You recall, whenever there are receptions downstairs, you hear the music just bubbling up, it's as clear as day."

Well now we know why the big Union’s put Hostess out of business... It was by order of Michelle Obama. She didn’t like her royal title being used by the riff raff

Any article that portrays FWOTUS as a “hostess” needs to be accompanied by the term “unexpected” so the rest of can ^DRINK^!

Wow. I’d forgotten that pic of our Flotus, the “fit, international style icon”.

This woman makes me gag. The media is still trying to get us to believe she’s a fashionista. She dresses like a clown. She should have traded shoes with Mario What’shisname. But she do like her “color pop”!

(First Lady) Michelle Obama Thursday suggested Republicans are engaged in rampant lying as they debate the issues with President Obama.

(snip) Mrs. Obama also charged that voter suppression during the 2012 election was widespread.

As First Lady, Michelle falls way short of that accolade....

Hard to believe we have such a classless looking first lady.

The Automatic Media used to ridicule Mrs. Bush the senior.

It is PAINFULLY obvious the Mrs. Obama fashions are directed at concealment of a poor figure.

because they had affairs which were not reported?

I would think Ron and Nancy were the classy ones.

I recomend reading Reagan’s love letters to Nancy.

Just curious... did anybody watch this interview?

Did Mooch ever say the word “Christmas” or just “holiday season” or some other nonsense?

Clark Gable had class even though he humped almost every actress who played a scene with him.

Class is an aura-a projection of charisma, sophistication and an honest respect for the public in spite of occasional personal moral weaknesses.
