Michelle Obama Reveals That Yes, President Obama Has Always Been 'Swagalicious'

"Good lord. Watching my husband walk off of Marine One and go to the Oval Office, it’s like, mmm, mmm, mmm."

WASHINGTON -- Even though she's been in the White House for a while, there are still moments when first lady Michelle Obama can't believe what she's experiencing.

Those moments have included watching her daughters and mother meet Pope Francis, having dinner with the Queen of England and watching Prince and Stevie Wonder perform at the White House, she told Oprah Winfrey at the United State of Women summit in Washington on Tuesday during a conversation focused on gender equality.

Another thing the first lady also hasn't gotten over is the president's frequent walk back to the White House from Marine One.

"Good lord.  Watching my husband walk off of Marine One and go to the Oval Office, it’s like, mmm, mmm, mmm," she said. "And you know he’s got that walk, right?"

The exchange prompted Winfrey to ask whether or not President Obama has always had so much swag or whether he's gotten "swaggier."

"No, he was very swagalicious," the first lady said. "Look, I told people this from the very start, when I -- started running -- Barack Obama is exactly who he says he is.  We both are.  That’s what I’ve been trying to tell people.  Ain’t no surprises.  We’re telling you who we are, and no tricks up our sleeves."
