Michelle Obama is 'tired' of husband Barack amid Covid-19 quarantine, Internet says 'he couldn't be less relevant'
Social media was inundated with comments mocking the former first lady, with some saying they were 'tired' of the couple altogether
Former FLOTUS Michelle Obama joked on Monday that she was “tired” of her husband, former President Barack Obama, during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown and needed "some other energy." Michelle's comments came during an appearance on NBC’s 'The Kelly Clarkson Show' on Monday.
Host Clarkson said, “When I went to the White House, I asked Dr Biden what is the first thing she would do post-pandemic. So we know you are knitting now. She said, ‘get a martini and fries’. So what are you going to do after knitting?”
Michelle responded, “I need to just remind Jill that they actually do have plenty of fries and martinis at the White House. You don’t need to wait. They got it all there. But I think maybe what she meant is that she wanted to have fries and a martini with some makeup on out in a restaurant somewhere. I’m in that same place, too."
She continued, “The first thing I want to do is get back out in the world. I want to go to a concert. I want to go to Broadway. I want to see a play. I want to be with people. I want to sit in a movie theater. I’m tired of my husband. I have heard everything he has to say, and it’s really fascinating. It really is. But I just need some other energy.”
Clarkson then added, “I get it. I just want to go out with my girlfriends to a dinner, have some wine, have a good time."

Last week, the former FLOTUS chimed in on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's March 7 interview with Oprah Winfrey, saying she wasn't surprised by their shocking claims.
Expressing hope that the British royals could reconcile with the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the 57-year-old weighed in on the CBS interview during an appearance on NBC, which aired on Tuesday morning, March 16. "Race isn't a new construct in this world, for people of color," Michelle told Jenna Bush Hager. "So it wasn't a complete surprise to, sort of, hear her feelings."
She continued, "The thing I hope for, and I think about: this first and foremost is a family, and I pray for forgiveness and healing for them. So they can use this as a teachable moment for us all." Michelle declared that public service is "a bright, sharp, hot spotlight" that most don't understand completely. "The thing I always keep in mind is that none of it is about us, in public service. It's about the people that we serve," she added.
