President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama grace the cover of this week’s PEOPLE magazine. This is possibly the last time the magazine will interview the couple before they leave the White House. In this exclusive cover story, the first lady breaks her silence on Donald Trump‘s presidential win and reveals why she didn’t stay up to see the results. Mrs Obama also explained what the family’s final weeks in the White House have meant to her daughters and her close friendship with Vice President Joe Biden’s wife Jill.
While many Americans stayed up late awaiting the outcome of the presidential election, Michelle Obama was fast asleep.
The first lady revealed in the interview that she didn’t stay awake to watch the election results last month.
‘I went to bed. I don’t like to watch the political discourse; I never have. I barely did with him,’ Mrs Obama said about her husband, sending the president into a fit of laughter.
