AZCentral: Mrs. Michelle Obama shows off her dance moves again Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
And Jill Biden joins her in their road trip to talk about military families.
Ellen asked about how she and daughters Malia and Sasha handle the criticism that comes with life in the White House. “It’s part of a job and that’s the good thing about the campaign. It really gets you prepared for all the hard knocks that come along with making really tough decisions,” said Mrs. O. “Fortunately the girls are pretty young. They’re not watching the news. They’re pretty much watching Disney and all that good stuff. They’re fairly shielded but when they have questions we talk about it honestly. … Fortunately they have friends who don’t make it an issue. I think it’s been better than I would have expected.”
She added that she chooses not to take in the negative comments. “There are always two worlds in politics. There is the stuff you hear on TV and it’s what you feel when you go out into the country. But people are kind. They are kind to us when we go into communities. I think people know that my husband’s intent is good and that we are making good progress. That’s what we feel. That’s the energy that we get back. You can chose to take in the negative or you take in the good stuff.”
