News & Notes: Michelle Obama ’85, Gross ’75 appear on The Late Show| Sep 29, 2015
First Lady Michelle Obama ’85 and Julie Raynor Gross ’75 appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night.
In addition to commenting on the challenges of being the first lady, Colbert read a letter written by former first lady Laura Bush that asked for advice for the first gentleman if a female president were elected. Obama said that the first gentleman should just follow his passion and be himself. Colbert joked that her answer was in reference to Bill Clinton, but Obama said that was not her intention.
Obama had been promoting her Let Girls Learn campaign prior to making an appearance on The Late Show. The campaign is a government-wide effort that encourages adolescent girls to complete their education.
