Michelle Obama Has Fun On 'The Tonight Show'
First Lady Michelle Obama got a big welcome on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday.
She appeared in a comedy sketch with Fallon and Will Ferrell who played girls who don't like anything healthy. The first lady had a spot-on valley girl accent.
Mrs. Obama had performed with Fallon before when she did the now-infamous “Evolution of Dance” skit.
On Thursday night they danced again, all to promote the first lady's Let's Move initiative.
Politico.com writer Hadas Gold says with Jay Leno gone, the late night landscape is changing for political guests.
She told INSIDE EDITION, "A lot of people have said that you can tell there is definitely a chemistry between Jimmy Fallon and Michelle Obama, and that Jimmy Fallon clearly loves the first lady. Jay Leno's audience demographics tended to skew more older, more Midwestern, which is the demographics Republicans really feel most comfortable with. So, losing Jay Leno for Republicans is kind of a big loss. It is the most comfortable seat in front of the camera."
Her appearance is getting raves by many. In The Daily News, they wrote, "Michelle Obama is hilarious on Fallon.”
But others online thought it was beneath the first lady.
One person wrote, "She has lowered the dignity of FLOTUS."
Another wrote, "Michelle in embarrassing sketch on Fallon."
No matter the reaction, you can bet politicians will be trying to get on as late night guests.
Gold said, "It is going to be really interesting to see as we get close to these elections, what happens with politicians on late night."
