Michelle Obama to Get Barack Gym Clothes for Christmas
Asked what she is getting her husband for Christmas while visiting a children’s hospital in Washington, D.C., Michelle Obama revealed that he’s getting what he asked for—gym clothes.
Mrs. Obama explained, “He said that’s what he wanted.” Aware that this might be perceived as a ploy to push her fitness campaign, she added, “I’m not forcing my husband to work out... There’s going to be some 'Let’s Move' joke about how I’m strapping him to the treadmill. No, he likes to work out!”
The First Lady was circumspect about what she was getting her two daughters, only saying, "They didn't ask for much this year. They’re going to get stuff. They don’t know what they’re going to get. They’re going to get small things. We don’t do a lot of big gift-giving. They get to ask for three things.”
Malia, 15, has already asked for an upgraded phone, which she received. Her mother commented, “I was like, ‘You messed it up!’ That should have been a Christmas gift.” Mrs. Obama remained silent about her own Christmas wish list.
