Michelle Obama Joining Forces

MObama is officially on Stephen Colbert’s bump status!

First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by The Colbert Report last night to talk about her Joining Forces initiative, which recently celebrated its first anniversary.

Mz. Obama explained:

"Jill Biden and I started this initiative to make sure that this country, which is a grateful nation, that we make sure that we do whatever we can to honor the service of our veterans, our troops and their families.”

Colbert asked the First Lady if there was any way citizens could help the troops privately, which brought Michelle to her next point.

Michelle answered:

"Absolutely. Our motto is everyone can do something. So this isn't big government. Government has a role to play, but it can't do everything."

So true! Everyone can make a difference and we’re always happy to see people supporting our troops, whichever way they go about it!

Colbert lightened up the mood later on in the interview, asking Michelle about her guest role on Nickelodeon’s iCarly and which show she liked better!

The First Lady joked:

"That's a tough one. iCarly is about 16 and she's real deep.”

LOLz!

Colbert tried to get a dance party going on the show, like Michelle did on iCarly, but she said she’d save her dance moves for next time!

We hope she remembers to bring her dancin' shoes!!

    The Obama's ONLY support the military around election time. Sorry, cow… NOT buying it.

    Because two zeroes are better than one.

    Our soldiers are paid for their services, and their wives make choices to marry into the military. Our soldiers aren't saints, and shouldn't be deified. They are employees of the American taxpayers. Do they do brave things? Yes. Should we appreciate them? Yes. But they're paid for what they do, and those folks make the choices they make to serve. I understand that what happened to the guys who were in Vietnam was really bad, but we've swung the pendulum way too far the other way. WTF is it with everyone in this country unable to find reasonable middle ground these days? As for Michelle Obama, she leaves me cold. I do not admire her, I do not respect her, and she needs to fade into the background.

    @Jen - Then it's unfortunate that your brother has a liar for a sister. The record ie the facts show that military families has been an issue that Michelle Obama has supported since she became First Lady and spoke about before her husband was president. Try being grateful about that if you love your brother hater, it's more than Laura Bush or any other First Lady has done for military families.

    Looks like cottage cheese thighs to me
    So much for her healthy lifestyle she tries to force on others, when she is not too busy going off on vacations on our dime, taking a staff of ? (she has 28 full time staff members)
    Be nice to have a real First Lady again

    How did American mothers do it for the last 250 years without you?

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! The only reason why this foundation was started is to try to get votes from the military. Obama has NEVER supported the military, & the military KNOWS it. I'm a military wife so I've seen it. She hasn't had a choice to say she supports the military, even prior to her husband becoming president. It's not like Obama thought one day "oh hey, I think I'll run for president", it's been planned. What a joke.
