First Lady Michelle Obama kept it too real with the cast of “The Real” when asked about what her husband was like in high school.
The hosts asked FLOTUS who got better grades in school between her and President Barack Obama, and the First Lady held nothing back when she answered.
“He didn’t take school seriously in high school,” she said. “He barely got his work done. He was a bum. And it took him a second cause he, you know, he had to grow up a little bit.”
Michelle went on to detail how the President went to college right after high school, but it still took him some time before he got serious about his future. The First Lady told how it wasn’t until Barack’s second year in college when he transferred to Columbia University that she said he decided “I gotta make something of myself. I gotta get it together.”
She then offered a few inspirational words, “It is never too late. The president of the United States screwed around in high school and he still got his act together. He did OK.”
We love The First Lady’s realness in this interview. Watch her response below.
