In what amounted to a fawning farewell love letter to the Obamas Monday night, Oprah Winfrey's hour-long sit-down interview with Michelle Obama aired on CBS hailed the outgoing First Lady as a "pop culture icon" who was "considered the coolest First Lady in US history".
Obama's sit-down with Winfrey, which aired Monday night on CBS, featured the first lady speaking on the "angry black woman" stereotype, her feelings on the Trumps and whether she would consider running for office. Obama gave some sound advice to the incoming First Lady when she visited the White House after the election. However, Clinton lost the campaign to Donald Trump, candidate for the Republican party. "You know, we've talked about this, that history moves in cycles", said Obama.
"This past election was challenging for me as a citizen to watch and experience".
Not letting her off the hook, Pirro directly challenged Michele Obama during her program. Obama told a New Hampshire crowd in October that Trump's remarks about grabbing women had shaken her "to the core".
"We will do whatever they need to help them succeed, so that's one of the things I said to Melania", she said. "Mentally, I'd already digested it before I actually read it".
It's not the sort of thing one "cavalierly just sort of ask (s) a family to do again".
The outgoing president made a cameo during the interview to praise his wife's performance as first lady.

The Secretary of the Interior is responsible for the management and conservation of federal land and natural resources. Trump likewise contradicts such land exchanges, however the arrangement made it into the official Republican stage.
"I thought, let me live my life out loud so that people can then see and then judge for themselves", Obama said. Mrs. Obama also opened up about how race and class still impact the country. In a brief cameo, the president praised the first lady's efforts over the last two terms. Asked about her famous motto, "When they go low, we go high", Obama described it as a matter of "modeling to the next generation".
"I got up and I looked at my iPhone", she said. When you run, your kids' lives stop...
We love the way Michelle's striped dress popped for the occasion - it was unexpected yet appropriate, chic, modern, and fun - and, above all else, it was truly memorable, making it a ideal choice for her final interview.
"It's sad because the thing that least defines us as people is the color of our skin", Obama said.
"My desire for this country is that we remain hopeful and that - and that we find a place in our hearts to love each other", she said. She went on to explain that she had sort of mentally prepared herself for the news even before she knew what happened.
