Michelle Obama (Sort of) Speaks on Barack's Pot-Smoking Ways

by at . Comments

Leave it to Michelle Obama to take the high road. Pun sort of intended.

While appearing on The Daily Show to promote her newest book, American Grown, the First Lady was asked about President Barack Obama's pot-smoking past.

Stewart likened Obama's youth to "the script of a Cheech and Chong movie." Not surprisingly, the Commander-in-Chief's better half had a classy response.

"He was like many young people," she said, adding that her husband changed his ways in college when "he realized he could do more with his life."

Stewart later tried to a comparison between President Obama and George W. Bush, whose past was also "out there," saying "he really related to that."

"I'm not taking any bait," Obama quickly replied, to Stewart's amusement.

The First Lady is classy and funny, ladies and gentlemen.
