In a live appearance to promote her new Netflix series Waffles + Mochi, Jimmy Kimmel posed a question to Michelle Obama that he reportedly asked several years ago.
Jimmy remembered, “A couple of years ago, I interviewed you in Tacoma, Washington, in front of a big group of people. You were on your book tour. We had a great talk, it was a lot of fun, and everyone was very excited to see you.”
“I asked you a question that night, and I actually asked your husband this question as well, and he kicked it back to you,” the show host, Jimmy Kimmel, continued.
Jimmy questioned, “I asked you that on the night that SEAL Team Six took out Osama Bin Laden at your husband’s order. Did you and your husband make love that night to celebrate?”
Michelle not only refused to answer the question, but she also said she was “still pleading the fifth.”
The former First Lady said, “You know, I have to tell your audience that for some very sick reason, you are very obsessed with this portion of that major historical event.”
She then made fun of Jimmy, saying, “You’re still that little boy in your bedroom, under the cover with the flashlight, going, ‘I hope nobody sees me.”
Last November, during Jimmy Kimmel Live’s interview with Barack Obama, the former president was asked the same question. But he too eschewed answering it.
Barack answered, “I suspect that she was asleep. The truth of the matter is, most of the time, by the time I was done working, she’d be snoozing.”
He continued, “Michelle goes to bed about 9 o’clock.”
