Michelle Obama Finally Revealed What Melania Trump's Mysterious Inauguration Gift Was

Michelle Obama Finally Revealed What Melania Trump's Mysterious Inauguration Gift Was

"There is all this protocol", Obama says in a clip from Thursday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show".

Michelle Obama's inquiring look, as well as Donald Trump's perfectly "gentlemanlike" gesture - that of leaving behind Melania as he rushed up the White House steps to greet the outgoing First Couple -were certainly the subject of talks on Twitter last January.

The 54-year-old visited "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to celebrate Ellen's 60th-birthday celebration.

On the morning of the inauguration, Trump stepped out of his auto and greeted the Obamas-leaving wife Melania to make her way up the steps herself. "He grabbed the box and took it back inside".

On the other hand, current First Lady Melania Trump has kept a low profile with little media presence since President Trump took office.


For another, Michelle Obama seemed perplexed about what to do with the big Tiffany box after Melania handed it to her.

She continued, "What am I supposed to do with this gift?"

On the morning of the inauguration, Donald Trump quickly got out of his auto at the White House to greet Michelle and Barack Obama, leaving his wife trailing behind holding a blue gift box. I'm thinking, do we take the picture with [it]?

In true Presidential fashion, it was her husband who ended up providing a solution to the gift problem. Clearly not expecting a present, Michelle frantically looked around for a place to put the box - both a attractive and painful sight. "I'll take care of the protocol here", Barack can be heard saying in the footage. It was the ideal storm-and one that left Michelle Obama flummoxed, faced with the possibility she might have to carry around a bright blue box the whole day.
