Michelle Obama stopped by Ellen for a little real talk.
When asked what she’ll miss most about the White House, she didn’t hesitate and had an answer immediately.
“It’s really the people,” said Obama. “The girls have grown up in the White House. The staff that’s there, we see them every day. These are people who have helped us raise our kids. They’ve loved us. They’ve taken care of us. And the minute we leave, that’s it. It’s really the people we’ll miss most.”
Michelle also thinks that she and Barack’s daughters, Sasha and Malia, will have the hardest time with the move. In the meantime, she’s focused on “creating some memories” while they’re still there.
“They think they’re ready, but when you’ve grown up in a place, I mean, imagine,” Obama said. “They won’t be able to knock on a door and say, ’Can I see my room?’ You know, that’s not gonna happen. So we’re trying to have them step back and really appreciate the walk on the South Lawn, sitting on the Truman Balcony.”
And, of course, since it was Ellen, the FLOTUS danced.
The President—who also famously danced on Ellen—has some competition.
