Taking a cue from First Lady Michelle Obama, President Obama finally made his first visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In an interview that will air today, Feb. 12, the President joined DeGeneres to discuss why Washington is so depressing, how he deals with the challenges of the office, and why he and Michelle no longer argue. (Answer: He’s decided she’s always right.)
Alas, there was no dancing, but there was music, and a fun appearance from a little girl whose presidential knowledge had earned her a spot on the couch next to a real-life president. She didn’t let the opportunity go to waste, answering questions and asking a few cute ones of her own.
But the highlight came after Ellen played the President a Valentine’s Day video message from the First Lady: “Roses are Red; Violets are Blue; You are the President; and I am your boo.” Having already perched himself Between Two Ferns, the President took his place between two conveniently-ready rose bouquets to present Michelle with a lovely response, backed by some nice mood music: “Somebody call the Situation Room, because things are about to get hot,” and “I Obama-care about you more than you even know.”
