Michelle Obama: Last days as first lady surprisingly emotional - VIDEO

Michelle Obama said preparations to leave the White House after eight years have been surprisingly emotional.


“It is nuts, I feel like crying right now and I didn’t think it was going to be that emotional,” the first lady said on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday evening.

“It has been super emotional for all of us in ways that we didn’t expect.”

Fallon flipped through some White House memories, showing Obama some of the most well-known photos of her and the president.

“The most iconic ear profile shot in the land,” she quipped as she looked at a photo of President Obama standing next to the Easter bunny.

She and Fallon also did the show`s "Thank You Notes" segment. Michelle Obama penned a thank-you note to her husband, writing, "Thank you Barack, for proving you’re not a lame duck, but my very own silver fox."

Fallon joked about her health initiatives, writing, "Since you like running so much, how about running for president?"

Obama said she and Barack are working to make the transition to the Trump administration as smooth as possible.

"Democracy is not about party," she said, recalling how courteous the Bushes were in their transition. "We`re all trying to get stuff done, and we’ve seen that decency and were trying to emulate that decency, so were going to be supportive to the Trump administration as much as we can."

But she did say she hopes President-elect Donald Trump will keep some of her initiatives, especially on school lunches, in place.

"I hope [the school lunch program] does not get touched because that makes sense, so we have to keep doing things that make sense for our future," she said.

Obama and Fallon also played a game of "Catchphrase" — joined by comedians Dave Chapelle and Jerry Seinfeld.

And they sang along to legendary musician Stevie Wonder`s performance on the show.
