Michelle Obama on Coronavirus Quarantine: ‘I’m Tired of My Husband’ — Need Some ‘Other Energy’

Former first lady Michelle Obama joked Monday on NBC’s “The Kelly Clarkson Show” that she was “tired” of her husband, former President Barack Obama, during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Clarkson said, “When I went to the White House, I asked Dr. Biden what is the first thing she would do post-pandemic. So we know you are knitting now. She said, ‘get a martini and fries.’ So what are you going to do after knitting?”

Obama said, “I need to just remind Jill that they actually do have plenty of fries and martinis at the White House. You don’t need to wait. They got it all there. But I think maybe what she meant is that she wanted to have fries and a martini with some makeup on out in a restaurant somewhere. I’m in that same place, too.”

She continued, “The first thing I want to do is get back out in the world. I want to go to a concert. I want to go to Broadway. I want to see a play. I want to be with people. I want to sit in a movie theater. I’m tired of my husband. I have heard everything he has to say, and it’s really fascinating. It really is. But I just need some other energy.”

Clarkson said, “I get it. I just want to go out with my girlfriends to a dinner, have some wine, have a good time.”
