Michelle Obama went on Today Thursday morning to promote International Day of the Girl and announce the launch of the Obama Foundation’s Global Girls Alliance to empower girls through education. Still, despite all the girl power on display, she couldn’t avoid fielding questions about her relationship with someone who was once the most powerful man on the planet.
Barack? Nope — though the former first lady did credit their successful marriage to having separate bathrooms. Hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie couldn’t resist asking Obama about her friendship with a different ex-POTUS: George W. Bush, who also happens to be the father of Today correspondent Jenna Bush Hager.
The two were most recently spotted at the funeral service for Sen. John McCain, where footage of Bush passing Obama a cough drop went viral.
