Michelle Obama went on Jimmy Fallon’s show and bashed Melania and President Trump and possibly the White House itself.
It was a confusing performance but there was no mistaken the digs Michelle took at Melania… for the cardinal sin of her bringing her a gift when they visited before the inauguration?
But it was Melania Trump who got the last laugh after an old video surfaced showing Michelle doing the same damn thing and if it was good enough for Michelle it sure as heck is good for Melania. What a hypocrite.
If you notice in the video below that Laura Bush handled the awkward situation with class and elegance while Michelle… complained.
From The Daily Caller: Eventually it emerged on The Ellen Degeneres Show that it was a “lovely frame,” but Obama also added she felt uncomfortable during the exchange because it wasn’t protocol for the moment.
“Well, there’s all this protocol. 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,” Obama recalled. “Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, ‘Okay, what am I supposed to do with this gift?”
“I was like, what do you do with the box?” the former first lady added.
But after Obama brought up the viral gift exchange again on Tuesday with Fallon, CNN White House reporter Kate Bennett pointed out Obama did the same thing at the same event in 2009, when she and her husband greeted former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush on the steps of the White House.
“It was sort of a rude thing to say, I thought; Melania Trump was just trying to be nice; she didn’t need to make fun of her for it. But whatever,” Bennett wrote in her newsletter.
From The Daily Mail: Michelle Obama poked fun at the Trumps last night when Jimmy Fallon asked what she was thinking when she left Capitol Hill on her last day as the First Lady.
Fallon showed her a picture of her and Barack boarding Air Force One after Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.

‘Bye Felicia,’ Obama blurted out, drawing rapturous applause and whooping from the audience of NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Also on the show, she pulled a face when discussing the moment Melania Trump awkwardly gave her a gift at the inauguration.
Melania had given her a Tiffany’s box containing a ‘lovely frame’ – which she received in front of the cameras, pulling a face indicating it had caught her off guard.
After a few seconds of not knowing what to do with the gift, Barack took it from her and gave it to a member of staff.
Describing her final moments as the First Lady, Obama said: ‘A lot was going on that day.
‘Right before that my daughters’ friends decided they needed a sleepover for the last day. I was like: “are you guys kidding me?” ‘
‘And then there was the Tiffany’s box,’ she said, referring to the gift that Melania Trump gave her, causing momentary awkwardness as she wasn’t sure what to do with it. ‘It was a lot.’
‘So, there was that and then there was the Tiffany’s box. ‘It was just a lot.’
