Ellen DeGeneres just came out and asked former First Lady Michelle Obama when she appeared on her show today, what was inside that Tiffany box that Melania Trump awkwardly gave her last January. Obama revealed it was… . .
“a lovely frame.”
But there was some trickiness, because of White House protocol though…
“I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you’re going to do this, they’re going to stand here,” Obama said, while the exchange took place behind her on a big screen. She narrated what was going through her head for the audience: “Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, ‘O.K., what am I supposed to do with this gift?’ And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. And I’m thinking, do we take the picture with it?
And then my husband saved the day. See, he grabbed the box and took it back inside. But everybody cleared out. No staff, no one. I was like, what do you do with the box?”
Now we know why she had THAT LOOK on her face holding the box. No word on what picture was put inside the now notorious frame. I suggest the one inset.
You can seee the entire interview tomorrow on Ellen. Clip below.
