President is really into gossip: Michelle Obama

Los Angeles, Sep 21 (IANS) US First Lady Michelle Obama says her husband and US President Barack Obama is able to get out of work mode when he is with the children, and he is “really into gossip” at the dinner table.

Michelle Obama, who has two daughters, spilled some beans on her husband’s off-duty demeanour when she became a part of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”, reports

In a preview clip from the episode that will air in India on Star World Premiere, Michelle Obama said the president tries to set his work aside and focus on his family when he crosses the threshold into the Executive Residence.

“It’s all about the kids. How were your days, what’s going on, what’s the latest gossip? He’s really into gossip, so you can get him really focused – because he doesn’t have a life,” she said.

Michelle Obama also asked Colbert: “If you got stuck on a desert island with one famous person, who’d you pick?”. And Colbert immediately picked the president.

When he asked her “How about you?”, she said “Beyoncé.”

The episode will air on Star World Premiere HD in India on Thursday.
