Remember when the White House was a place of refined manners, professional behavior decorum? Yeah… me neither. I was only born in the fifties. But if we’re going to keep using the highest office in the land as a clown car, why not put on the red rubber nose, big floppy shoes and just go for it! Clearly the staff had that in mind when they cooked up the idea of having the First Lady invite late night comic Jimmy Fallon over to the Blue Room to engage in some comic athletic competitions to commemorate the one year anniversary of the FLOTUS’s “Let’s Move” initiative.
The normally dignified Blue Room at the White House became a late-night show comedy set last month when first lady Michelle Obama engaged in a friendly game of tug of war with host Jimmy Fallon, according to a photo released by the White House today.
The scene, part of a taping for Fallon’s show, is meant to promote Mrs. Obama’s commitment to physical activity — and good humor — on the second anniversary of her “Let’s Move!” initiative aimed at fighting childhood obesity.
