Michelle Obama was a guest on The Late Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night.

And not once did the host ask to touch his guest’s hair.

Instead, the First Lady came out to raucous applause, initially talking about what it will be like to leave the White House after eight years.

She then was asked about being friends with Beyonce, who Obama simply could not say enough nice things about.

She’s sweet, she’s caring, she’s a great mother, she’s an overall special lady, Obama said of Queen Bey.

From there, focus shifted to a recent spread of Michelle and Barack Obama in Essence, specifically a certain photo that broke the Internet more than any Kim Kardashian nude picture has ever done.

"That’s my Boo," Michelle exclaimed about Barack, helping to show why the world adores her so much.

She proceeded to laugh over how the President is "horrible" when it comes to photo shoots and has to "chill out" and take his time.

The best part of the above clip takes part around the five-minute mark, however, when Colbert asks Michelle to do a impression of Barack.

And she totally abides!

"Malia will start it, because she usually asks the serious question like, ‘Dad, tell us about your day and tell us about that conversation on global warming,’" she explained, adding, doing her best Barack Obama:

“Well, I’m glad you asked that. Let me just answer that in three points…"

It’s pretty darn hilarious.

Obama then returned to her normal voice to admit the following:

"Sasha and I are like, ‘Oh God, no. Don’t get him started.’ Because Sasha and I wanna talk about our favorite song on the ‘Lemonade’ album."

Again… in case you needed another reason to love Michelle Obama.

Elsewhere in the lighthearted interview, the 52-year-old also revealed that the Commander-in-Chief “is really into gossip.”


“Because he doesn’t have a life,” Michelle quipped.

So, in other words, the President of the United States may be reading The Hollywood Gossip right now. (Hi, Barack!)

Later, in the clip posted immediately above, Colbert brought up Melania Trump and how she plagiarized parts of Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech at this year’s RNC.

“Melania Trump was so criticized for using what turned out to be a portion of your speech, but do you have any sympathy [for her] because there are people around her creating things?” the host inquired.

“Yeah, that was tough,” Obama deadpanned.

We somehow think the answer was no. She does not have any sympathy for Melania.

But our favorite part of the entire segment?

When Michelle said her husband is "swagalicious" because he has so much "swag."

And if Colbert doesn’t know what "swag" is… well… he probably doesn’t have any.
