First Lady Michelle Obama probably hasn’t spent much time in CVS these past seven-and-a-half years. That all changed Wednesday on “Ellen.”
Host Ellen DeGeneres dragged the Commander-in-Chief’s wife to the local convenience store in an effort to help the Obamas adjust to post-White House life. Based on the FLOTUS’ confusion about Coinstar, the departing First Family is going to need all the assistance they can get. Michelle was even more baffled by boxed wine — and just wait until they reach self-checkout.
Fortunately, the two got the Zinfandel tapped and flowing, thanks to the help of some real shoppers. None of that seemed particularly legal, though store manager Jose appeared delighted throughout the shoot.
Soon, a bored DeGeneres became a giant thorn in Obama’s side, which pretty much lasted for the duration of the experience. Ellen even eventually terrified a baby — she probably didn’t earn a fan for “Finding Dory 2.”
“You are really not a good person to shop with,” Obama told DeGeneres, adding later: “You know, you’re really annoying — it’s like taking a three-year-old to the store.”
The Secret Service accompanied the two troublemakers, of course, though it’s a bit unclear if the guys scored a Snickers bar for the effort.
