What was Michelle Obama thinking after Trump's inauguration? 'Bye, Felicia'

What was Michelle Obama thinking after Trump's inauguration? 'Bye, Felicia'

Michelle Obama is now out promoting her book "Becoming", a memoir partly about her time as first lady.

Back on the very first night of her "Becoming" book tour last month, Michelle Obama revealed what was going through her head when she and husband Barack Obama were boarding what had been Air Force One until noon on January 20, 2017.

"Bye, Felicia!" Obama quipped, causing both Fallon and the audience to burst into laughter. "That was a day". "And right before that, my daughters" friends decided they needed a sleepover for the last day. I was like, 'Are you guys kidding me? "'We're leaving. You gotta take all your stuff, pick it up". The blankets, the bears.' They're all crying, I'm like 'Get out. "That was a day", Obama said.

After cameras captured Melania Trump's handing Michelle Obama the gift, it was revealed that inside the box was a picture frame.

"I was like, what do you do with the box?" the former first lady added.

Michelle Obama Floors Jimmy Fallon With 2 Words on Leaving White House to Trump: ‘Bye, Felicia!’

Fallon asked Obama about a photo of her with President Barack Obama on Donald Trump's inauguration day, waiving from Air Force One. Obama drew similar reactions earlier this month when she accidentally swore in front of a sold-out crowd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn while criticizing Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg's controversial "lean in" mantra.

It's a statement used to express utter dismissiveness - a sort of "get out of my face" comment.

The late-night talk show host asked Obama if she was optimistic about the future of the United States.

"There are a lot of young people who look at me and Barack [.] and think: 'oh, I want that #relationshipgoals.' But I want young people to know that marriage is work, even the best". "We owe young people that optimism, that hope, because what's the alternative?".

But, Michelle Obama does not want to be your #goals.
