Michelle Obama Talks White House Chores, Says Bo 'Is The Most Popular Obama' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The First Family -- they're just like us! After sharing an anecdote about Malia's party clothes on "The View," Michelle Obama sat down with Gayle King to talk White House chores. The First Lady says she tells the girls, "They will not live in the White House forever. And if they're 17, 18 and can't make a bed, they will be pretty pathetic." As for the laundry, Malia will have to start doing some soon (FLOTUS' orders) and First Granny Marian Robinson apparently still does her own.

Then, there was the matter of Bo. Michelle remarked, "He is the most popular Obama. He's my dog, oh yes." Gayle tactfully asked if the girls have "pooty duty," to which Michelle responded,
"They've had pooty duty before, but actually Bo, like, goes in a private place. He's really good about that." Okay, then. Relatedly, the president once admitted that he, in fact, scoops Bo's...presents.

Michelle added, "[Sasha and Malia] have to take [Bo] out after dinner. They have to take him out during the weekends when they're not in school. Malia's in charge of Bo in the evenings so she has to do his last walk rain or shine, homework or no homework."
