Michelle Obama on Republican National Convention: No, I did not watch
When you’re the First Lady of the United States, even if you go on a late night talk show to talk about sleep-away camp, parenting tips and Kale chips because you want everyone to have access to information about being healthy, there is always a possibility that politics are going to creep into the conversation, somehow. If the elections are less than 3 months away, it’s almost guaranteed.
David Letterman did not miss the opportunity to talk to Michelle Obama about the Republican National Convention. It turns out that the First Lady did not watch but that does not mean that the rest of the country shouldn’t.
When asked if she was following the RNC, she said,
“You know, no. I—well, first…Well, no, let me start by saying I, as the wife of the guy they’re running against, I tend not to watch it, but I think it’s important for everyone to watch these conventions because this is the time you get to know the party, you understand the platform, you understand the candidates.”
Mrs Obama went on to say,
“You know, this is technically where the campaign begins, so I think it’s very important for everyone to watch as much of both conventions as possible to make their decisions. I didn’t watch it, but…”
A lot can be said about Michelle Obama and truthful has to be among those things.
