“I wanted to bring voice to women who know what that feels like. You’re just putting up with some man’s voice saying some stuff that is inappropriate and out of line, and they think it’s a joke. It has a lasting impact. … You have the power to vote against it.” Obama said.
Obama’s second stop was also a success. The former FLOTUS made an exclusive appearance on The Ellen Show where Ellen, being the comedian that she is, took her on a Costco run! The two stopped at Costco to promote her bestselling book: “Becoming,” which is now a best-seller! The duo surprised Costco customers with a book signing in which Ellen played fun at Michelle while she mingled with the crowd.

Mrs. Obama didn’t stop there! While in Los Angeles, she also payed a surprise visit and read to preschoolers at the Skid Row Education Center, Para Los Niños. She read books to the kids and allowed them to take home three of them from a selection of titles stacked on a classroom table.
“How many people like to read? I like to read. You know, I just wrote a book, and I brought you guys some books because I love books, and I wanted to make sure you guys got a lot of books,” she told the children.
Michelle Obama’s out here educating and winning!
