Mrs. Obama will be visiting “Late Night” to kick off a national tour celebrating the third anniversary of Let’s Move!, her initiative to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation.

    Is it 2016 yet??? Lord these people love being on TV.

    @Bob,

    Agreed. Don’t they have actual work to do?

  • Boo Boo Bear

    She is the First Lady, and a darn good one. Unlike the last first lady, people actully want to see and hear what she has to say.

  • RG-X

    For crying out loud – what is she promoting now? You’re in the White House now do something else besides talk shows!

  • Brad

    Woot! Woot!

    @Boo Boo Bear,

    Laura Bush was highly respected as well.

    (I come here to discuss why Mrs. Obama is going on Fallon’s show rather than Letterman’s, which is also in NY, and I find her being bashed. How lame do you have to be to bash the first lady on a TV ratings site? Don’t these haters have “any actual work to do?” )

    Now back to our regularly scheduled program: I don’t think Fallon has earned the right to have Mrs. Obama on his show. He lacks gravitas and skill as a political interviewer. I think she should go on Letterman’s show instead and forego giving Fallon any credibility as more than a lightweight.
