'Today' and always: Michelle Obama is my bemused facial expression hero

Posted on

First Lady Michelle Obama joined Matt Lauer on this morning’s Today show to talk about Egypt, her husband’s prospects for reelection and how he kicked his smoking habit (equally important), school lunches, Facebook (“It’s not necessary.”), and best of all: how the President most definitely does not dye his hair. The editors went all CSI: Makeover Madness on Michelle, displaying side-by-side images of Barack with different-looking hair from the same day. SHUDDER. You can see the most riveting crime scene in weeks at the bottom of this post. Anyway, I got a little screengrabby after their 30-minute interview. It happens. After the jump, five reasons Michelle Obama should co-host Today after she leaves the White House. What? Why not?

Sin City 25. This “bish please” facial expression

EVA GREEN4. This one

Jodie Foster George Clooney3. This one!

Hobbit Battle Of The Five Armies2. The fire in Matt Lauer’s eyes as he confesses, “I want Tater Tots.”

OUTSKIRTS 021. Mustard shoes

Exhibit A from CSI: Makeover Madness.

I’m kind of obsessed with that “MATT ONE-ON-ONE WITH FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA” banner. Is “Matt” like an adjective here? Is it anything like matte? Certainly not!

Are you into this or what?
