Michelle Obama is arguably the coolest first lady that our nation has ever had. She is both emotionally positive and intellectually stimulating. When looking back at her accomplishments, it’s easy to see why she is loved by so many people of all shapes and sizes.
The main reason why millions of people all over the world love her could be because of her infectious smile and the radiance that exudes from it. She is a lady who truly knows how to empower people and inspire greatness in everyone.
Join us as we take a look at 20 of Michelle’s most memorable moments in the White House.
Let’s Move Fitness Challenge
One of Michelle Obama’s most memorable moments was her initiative called the Let’s Move Fitness Challenge. She stated with absolutely no uncertainty that the Let’s Move Fitness Challenge was something that was very near and dear to her heart. This campaign was a way for her to bring about positive changes to the way our nation feels about health and nutrition.
Joining Forces Campaign
Michelle Obama teamed up with Jill Biden, the wife of our Vice-President, to promote the “Joining Forces” campaign, which called for all Americans to rally around the troops and support them with not only expressions of gratitude, but also with opportunities for employment. This campaign was something practical as well as symbolic.
Appearance on iCarly
Our amazing First Lady appeared on the television show “iCarly,” in order to support the troops. She also got to show off her dance moves and acting abilities while she connected with the children of our nation. Once again, she proved to all of us just how cool she really is, and yet remains poised and professional at the very same time.
In order to promote her Let’s Move Initiative, Michelle Obama appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” where she and Jimmy danced together in a sketch entitled “The Evolution of Mom Dancing.” The pair performed such dances like “The Tush and Shush” “The You Go Girl,” and the “Barack Obama.”
Jumping Rope with Kelly
Our awesome first lady made an appearance on “Live With Kelly” and demonstrated how great she is at jumping rope. This spectacular appearance also featured the Cary Family YMCA SuperSkippers, a group of competitive jump ropers. Michelle demonstrated her abilities immediately after the show’s host had messed up and failed to jump rope properly.
Dancing with Ellen
When Michelle appeared on television with Ellen Degeneres, the two of them performed a choreographed dance routine to the tune of Bruno Mars’ hit “Uptown Funk.” Six other dancers appeared with them as the crowd roared in approval. She is a natural entertainer filled with grace and elegance. Watching her perform is always an enjoyable experience.
Slam Dunking with LeBron James
During an interview with several NBA stars, including Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, Michelle was given the opportunity to slam dunk the ball. This event was held in order to promote the Let’s Move Initiative. The dunk occurred right after Dwyane testified about how much he loved to eat his veggies. LeBron held up a miniature hoop so the FLOTUS could slam dunk a smaller-than-normal sized basketball.
Top Ten with David Letterman
While Michelle is an awesome dancer and a great actress, she is also an adept spokeswoman who is completely at home in front of a camera. She appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and read the Top Ten List. David and his audience were quite impressed with her natural ability to entertain people in almost any situation she may find herself in.
Appearance with Oprah
In this interview with Oprah, Michelle talked about her plans after her term as First Lady. Oprah listened closely as Michelle described her desire to do normal things like regular people do. One of these things was to go shopping at Target. It appears that she might be ready to wind down her public appearances for at least a little while and take a break from the limelight. We can only hope that she decides to come back eventually, in order to provide us with even more inspiration.
Michelle and Missy
After giving James Corden, the host of a late night television show, a tour of the White House, Michelle was joined by Missy Elliott. The three of them then performed an in-car karaoke version of “Get Your Freak On” as they danced in their seats and sang at the top of their lungs. This memorable moment featured Missy checking out James as he demonstrated his ability to rap.
During her final commencement speech, Michelle Obama criticized some of the things that Donald Trump said during his presidential campaign. It appears that she does not agree with his stance on Mexican immigrants and was not afraid to voice her opinion on the matter. This appearance proved that she is more than a pretty face that can sing, dance, and entertain us. She also has the willpower and courage to express her political views.
Appearance on NCIS
Michelle also appeared in a cameo role in “NCIS,” one of the biggest shows on television. This was done as part of the Joining Forces Initiative. Executive Producer Gary Glasberg said that the entire experience was “a dream come true.” The extras that performed in the scene were actual military wives. The First Lady has been a constant supporter of U.S. troops during her husband’s entire tenure as POTUS.
Dancing with a 106-Year-Old Lady
When a 106-year-old lady visited the White House, she got a special treat. She got to dance with Michelle Obama. Her husband watched and laughed at the spectacle. Hopefully, we will all be able to dance in front of the president when we are that old. It is moments like this that truly make us realize just how precious every second is.
Watching Baseball and Looking Good in Cuba
President Obama was the first POTUS to visit Cuba in several decades due to improvements in the relationship between the U.S. and the communist nation. But before they got down to official business, they enjoyed many pleasurable things during their visit. One of these excursions included watching a baseball game with leader Raul Castro, the brother of Fidel.
Acting like any normal couple would, the Obamas shared a kiss with the nation on the KissCam. It’s nice to see the president and his wife acting like a regular couple in love. This is especially true when you consider that this man has control of the most powerful military in the world. With a wife like Michelle, you can be sure that Barack will always act appropriately, even if he is stressed and under pressure.
Books Before Boys
Michelle obviously believes in the benefits involved with things like educational empowerment. In an event called “The Power of an Educated Girl,” she told a room full of young ladies to put “books before boys.” This is powerful advice that will inspire a new generation to make the most of their lives so that they will not fall into the typical traps that often so many other young people fall into.
Presenting an Academy Award
The fans of the Academy Awards were in for a special treat when our First Lady presented the award for best picture to Argo. The presentation was done in the White House and was broadcast to the main event on a large screen. The crowd thoroughly enjoyed this magic moment, and the cast and crew of the film were honored by her appearance.
Michelle dances with a turnip while singing a parody of the tune, “Turn down for what.” She changed the lyrics to “turnip for what.” This was, of course, part of her Let’s Move campaign that focuses on promoting healthy eating. It appears that Mrs. Obama never turns down an opportunity to have a great time while promoting a worthy cause.
Pushups with Ellen
So apparently with all of that healthy food and exercise Michelle gets, she is in great shape. Here is a picture of her and Ellen in a push up contest. It would seem appropriate to say that when it comes to fitness and nutrition, our beloved First Lady didn’t just fall off of the turnip truck.
They Just Live Here
When her two daughters were named the “Most Influential Teens” by Time magazine, Michelle responded, “I don’t know why. They have done nothing to gain any influence. They just live here.” It would appear that our first lady does not hesitate to speak her mind. Even if that means being honest about the fact that her daughters have done nothing to make themselves noteworthy.
