Michelle Obama Discusses Daughters On Live With Kelly & Michael
Yesterday “LIVE with Kelly and Michael”, the show aired its first full, live broadcast from the White House Monday morning.
Hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan headed to the nation’s capital for this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll and sat down with first lady Michelle Obama, who discussed how the annual Easter Egg Roll event is playing an important part in observing her #GimmeFive challenge.
She also joked about Malia and Sasha, 14, being featured in Time magazine’s 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 alongside other teens like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Jaden Smith and Mo’ne Davis. But she didn’t quite agree with their placement or ‘influential status’.
“I don’t know why [they’re on the list] – they’re not influential, they just live here,” she said. “They have done nothing to gain any influence. I don’t think they even realize that they’re influential,” she continued. “I don’t think anybody showed them that article, so don’t mention it!”
Amongst all the jokes, the proud mother could not help but gush about her girls’ work ethic. The young ladies are not only responsible, but are “pretty self-motivated.”
“We’ve always had rules … no screen time during the week, no phones. Now that Malia is older she is pretty much independent because I want her to be prepared for college when I’m not there,” Obama said.
