Michelle Obama, Stephen Colbert play blanket fort

Posted on


As Stephen Colbert put it on Tuesday night, the greatness of Michelle Obama is that she is so beloved despite being most famous for telling people to eat their vegetables. But this maturity doesn’t mean she can’t cut loose from time to time and inhabit her inner child. So on Tuesday’s The Late Show, Colbert invited her into a blanket fort with him. Together, they did their best impression of kids on a sleepover, including the deep questions.

“If you got stuck on a desert island with one famous person, who’d you pick?” Obama asked.

“Oh, I’d pick the president,” Colbert said. “How about you?”

“Beyoncé,” Obama replied.
