Michelle Obama SHADES Melania Trump On THAT Awkward Gift
Those who could see through their tears on MY President Trump's inauguration day might remember that the biggest news - besides the fact that the epic, amazing, really great event was attended by twelve billion people - was the sups awkward gift that MY First Slovenian Stripper Melania Trump handed over to Michelle Obama at an inopportune time. FYI I'm obviously just kidding about Melania Trump being a stripper. She's a hooker.
Well now Obama - in her ever-classy way - is finally opening up about the exchange that had America cringing - and she sure isn't coming to Melania's defense! While opening wide up to Ellen, she clarifies that the ostentatious Tiffany box she received must be some Eastern European hooker thing, because the gift was indeed as unexpected and untraditional as audiences assumed. After divulging that her present was a frame, she states:
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. Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like okay… What am I supposed to do with this gift.
And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. And I’m thinking do we take the picture with…? And then my husband saved the day. See he grabbed the box and took it back inside. But everybody cleared out. No staff, no one. I was like what do you do with the box?
To be honest, I felt a little, teeny tiny bit bad for Melania when the first thing she did at the White House was make a faux pas. It was kind of like a scene from Pretty Woman in which Julia Roberts doesn't know how to properly behave outside of a street corner. Actually, it was exactly like that. You can catch the full interview later today on Ellen, but honestly, this clip gives me all the life I need to get through the day!
