First Lady Michelle Obama received some applause of her own during last night’s State of the Union for her efforts to curb childhood obesity in one of the fattest countries on Earth.
As President Obama discussed his plans for health insurance, he paused to acknowledge the First Lady’s agenda, gesturing to her and saying:
“I want to acknowledge our First Lady, Michelle Obama, who this year is creating a national movement to tackle the epidemic of childhood obesity and make our kids healthier. Thank you.”
The crowd rose to its feet for a standing ovation. Remaining seated, the First Lady gestured with both hands and mouthed, “sit down.”
Pausing before he continued, Mr. Obama then said, “She gets embarrassed,” prompting chuckles. It was a very cute moment between the first couple.
