Playing Michelle Obama Shares Barack Impression, Dishes on Their Sexy 'Essence' Photo Shoot on 'Late Show'

Michelle Obama sat down for a fun, light-hearted interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Tuesday, where she dished on presidential photo shoots, Melania Trump, and first family dinner conversation.

One of the highlights of the sit-down chat, which shied away from politics, was when Colbert asked the first lady about her stunning, romantic photo shoot with her husband, President Barack Obama, for Essence magazine.

While the first couple looked very loving in their pics, Michelle revealed that the actual moment being captured on film was decidedly less lovey dovey.

"Barack is horrible in photo shoots, and I hate doing photo shoots with him, so I'm sure right there I was saying, 'Would you just be patient? Don't rush the photographer,'" Michelle said, laughing. "I was trying to convince him to just chill out and relax. So [the photographer] caught that discussion."

While they didn't talk too much about the current presidential race, Colbert asked Michelle if she had any "sympathy" for political spouses who have to "stand by" their partners while they run for president, even if they don’t agree with some of their political stances.

"No, not really," she replied. "You have to be in it. And if you don't agree, you should have [said so] before they ran. Bottom line is, if I didn't agree with what Barack was saying, I would not support his run. So I stand there proudly and I hope they are too. So no sympathy!"

Colbert said he felt a little sympathy for Melania Trump, after she was embroiled in a plagiarism scandal at the Republican National Convention, where portions of her speech were reportedly lifted from a speech Michelle had delivered years earlier.

"Yeah, that was tough," Michelle responded, dryly.

The First Lady, who tied the knot with Barack in 1992, later revealed that she and their two daughters, Sasha and Malia, have developed spot-on impressions of the president after years of listening to him give long-winded answers at the family dinner table.

"Malia will start it, because she usually asked the serious question like, 'Dad, tell us about your day and tell us about that conversation on global warming,'" Michelle recounted.

"Well, I’m glad you asked that,” Michelle said, imitating Barack. “Let me just answer that in three points."

"Sasha and I are like, 'Oh god, no. Don't get him started,'" she explained. "Because Sasha and I wanna talk about our favorite song on the Lemonade album."
