Even though belligerent businessman turned political leader Donald Trump managed to finish with an edge in the electoral college great enough to grant him victory, he remains drastically unpopular.
Having long set a record for the lowest approval rating to be recorded for a president this early in their tenure, Trump’s approval rating stays below about 40 percent consistently.
No matter how many times he wants to lob wild attacks at them, continuing on with his traditions from when he wasn’t in office and Barack Obama was, the Obamas remain more popular than Trump can no doubt ever hope to be.
President Obama finished his time in office with an approval rating of about 57 percent, well above the approval ratings routinely measured for the current president.
Considering this fact, it’s no doubt welcome news for untold numbers that the most recent first lady, Michelle Obama, will soon be appearing for her first television interview since she and her husband left the White House last year.
She’s reportedly going to be appearing on Thursday’s edition of the Ellen DeGeneres Show as a part of the events in honor of the host’s 60th birthday.
This isn’t the first time that Michelle Obama has worked with Ellen on something. Among the less serious things that the two have worked on is a 2016 segment in which the two of them went to a CVS Pharmacy for the aim of helping “prepare the First Lady for life after the White House.”
Michelle’s husband has already made a smattering of public appearances since leaving office, including as the inaugural guest on late night icon David Letterman’s new Netflix show.
