Here we go again with a not so bright moment from the classless Michelle Obama. Let’s not forget..Michelle has had many classless moments. This one tops the cake.
The former first lady made an appearance Tuesday on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon to share what it was like leaving the White House and briefly discussed her rude reaction to the Tiffany’s box moment she experienced with the incoming First Lady at the Trump inauguration.
Fallon held up a photo showing Michelle and husband Barack Obama smiling and waving from the steps of the Air Force One on the day they left office in January 2017 and asked what was going through her mind at the time.
“Bye, Felicia,” Michelle Obama joked, earning a big laugh from the crowd. So classy huh?
Obama then went on to explain why that was a crazy day, recalling her daughters held a sleepover with their friends on the night before they moved out of the White House.
“There was that, and then the Tiffany’s box,” Obama said, making a puzzled expression. “It was just all a lot.”
Obama was referencing the moment at the inauguration where she and Barack greeted President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, and Melania sweetly handed her a blue box from Tiffany’s. The bad-mannered Michelle Obama clearly didn’t know what to do with the box in the moment, as they quickly transitioned to snap a photo.

Amazing how rude these people are. Let’s go back to when Rush Limbaugh reported on this back in Feb of this year
Melania Trump presented this gift to Michelle Obama, who looked like she’d be handed a vial of the flu virus. She barely reached out to accept it and then looked around perplexed as though, “What’s this? What am I supposed to do with this?” What this is is another bit of evidence that I know these people, that you should not doubt me when I explain liberals and how they live and how they behave.
So Melania gives Michelle the box. And Michelle stands there holding it in both hands, kind of like looking around like, “What is this? What do I do with this?” She tries to give it to an aide to take because she wants her hands free. There were some still-shot photos from that video taken, and I’m reading my tech blogs about this Friday night. And they’re making fun of Melania for having the audacity to give Michelle something from Tiffany, and they think Michelle is the greatest in the world because of this expression of disdain on her face.
They happened to catch a still shot from video in which Michelle looks like she’s somewhat frowning, and my left-wing liberal tech bloggers thought that was the greatest thing. They thought Michelle was disrespecting Melania. They thought Melania had been foolish and stupid and uppity to give Michelle a gift. And they thought Michelle handled it with aplomb by showing her disgust.
And I’m thinking, “What has happened to our country?” When you go anywhere, if you go for dinner, you take something, you take a bottle of wine. It’s standard, ordinary procedure when you’re invited. In this case, Melania Trump was trying to extend a little informal gift. And even that became some kind of a sign of disrespect to the Obamas.
I remember this like it was yesterday. I remember the expression on Michelle Obama’s face. It was disgust, it was curiosity, perplexed, she didn’t know what to do with this. Clearly did not want it. Clearly did not appreciate it. Clearly thought that it was weird.
You can read more on this story via NY Daily News:
Obama later revealed that it was a picture frame inside the box, and explained why the gift took her by surprise at the time.
“I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you’re going to do this, they’re going to stand here,” Mrs. Obama said in January on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. “Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, OK.”
The phrase “Bye, Felicia” is a reference to a line in the 1995 movie “Friday” starring Ice Cube and is often used as slang to sarcastically or snidely say goodbye to someone or something.
