Michelle Obama on ‘The Colbert Report’

SHARE Michelle Obama on ‘The Colbert Report’

Barack Obama declined to appear on Stephen Colbert’s news-parody show “The Colbert Report,” taping in Philadelphia this week (its first remote outing), but his wife, Michelle Obama, faced Colbert’s singular wit last night.

Colbert began the interview by “grilling” her about her “silver spoon” upbringing on Chicago’s South Side. He even serenades her at one point. Eventually he asked: “Why would you want to be first lady? Youd never get any sleep because I understand the phone keeps ringing at 3 a.m.”

Hillary Clinton is scheduled on the show tomorrow night.
