Michelle Obama SHADES Melania Trump On THAT Awkward Gift

Michelle Obama: “Forget what they're saying in Washington”

Catch the whole interview with the former First Lady on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday, Feb. 1.

In the year since Obama moved out of the White House and into a home less than two miles away, the former first lady has led a relatively low-key life in Washington.

Before leaving the White House on January 31, 2017, Obama sat down with Oprah Winfrey for her final interview as First Lady.

DeGeneres talked about how a significant number of people is frightened by the current events unfolding in Washington, D.C. Mrs. Obama told the audience not to let Washington D.C. politicians dictate how they should live their life, but to continue to show empathy and compassion. That's not necessarily who we are.

Michelle Obama is a stickler for protocol - at least that's her excuse for appearing to give Melania Trump the cold shoulder on Inauguration Day. Like the rest of the world who saw that moment, however, she did wonder about Trump's present. "We can't lost sight of that", she said.

Michelle Obama has offered a message of hope to Americans anxious by a dark political climate, making an appeal to common decency. "I mean, this is like a state visit so they tell you you're gonna do this, you're gonna stand here", Michelle said. I, you know, I got myself all gussied up to come here. She was unsure what to do with it - until her husband took the gift inside the White House.

When a proud mother shared a picture of her daughter dressed as Michelle Obama at school, she probably never expected to hear from the woman herself. He doesn't have enough closet space...sorry! The young girl, named Alexandria, was inspired by Mrs Obama and even created a project around her.

And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. By wearing some relatively smaller labels on a global stage, she was able to amplify designers' profiles to an worldwide level, fostering subsequent success and notoriety for emerging designers that would outlast her time in office. She included boxed wine, metamucil, a push up kit and a Barack Obama chia pet "to remember the good times".
