Stephen Colbert Invites First Lady Michelle Obama To Hang Out In His Blanket Fort

"Do you think fruits and vegetables have feelings?"

First Lady Michelle Obama was a guest on Tuesday night's Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote her Let Girls Learn initiative. Mrs. Obama has proven time and again what a cool first lady she is, so Colbert had no problem convincing her to join him in his blanket fort, where he goes to revisit the innocence of childhood.

While Colbert chooses to snack on classic sleepover junk food, Mrs. Obama enjoys some fresh vegetables as part of her ongoing campaign for healthy living

"Do you think fruits and vegetables have feelings?" Colbert wonders.

"Gosh, I hope not," she responds. "I eat way too many of them."

The conversation goes on to include the requisite Donald Trump burn, as well as some musings on the Presidential Physical Fitness Test. ("Why does he care how many sit-ups I can do?")

In the end, they both share the same wish: "Improve access to education for the 62 million girls worldwide who are not in school." Mrs. Obama calls "jinx" first.

Mrs. Obama also sat down with Colbert for a more grown-up interview in which she showed off her impression of President Obama at the dinner table and shared what it's like to be Beyoncé's Beyoncé.
