Literally, All Michelle Obama Wants Post FLOTUS Life Is A Little Fresh Air
First Lady Michelle Obama breaks down the things she can't wait to experience once she and her husband leave the White House.
It seems like it doesn’t take much to make Michelle Obama happy, as she discussed a short personal bucket list for after her husband Barack’s presidential term ends in a little over a year. The First Lady stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday night (Sept. 28), where she discussed she’s craving life’s little pleasures when she returns to a “normal” life post- White House.
"I want to do little things like, you know, open a window," she said to the host, eliciting laughter from the crowd. “The window opens if I press it in the car, but everybody’s like ‘Oh my God! What was that!?’ One day as a treat, my lead agent let me have the windows open on the way to Camp David. It was like five minutes out and he was like, ‘Windows open! Enjoy it!'” She also noted that she wants to be able to go to stores like Target and drive around.
In addition to her wishlist, she also came to the show to discuss the new program, #62MillionGirls, which is under her Let Girls Live initiative. The new leg of the program aims to help fund education for the 62 million young girls worldwide who are unable to attend school. Obama and Colbert also discussed the Global Citizens Festival, held on Saturday Sept. 26 in Central Park, where she announced the campaign in greater detail.
“It’s about reigniting that hunger for education here,” she told Colbert’s audience. “There are girls around the world who would die for the opportunities that our kids here in our country have.”
Mrs. Obama said that she will continue working on the program once she leaves the White House. But we assume she’ll drive to Target first, with the windows all the way down. Watch the full video here.
