First Lady Michelle Obama is as “hip” to the culture as any of us. Her presence on social media has been felt for the last few years through interviews, hilarious comedy sketches, speeches, and even rap songs. FLOTUS is the cool mom we all wish we had.
Recently sitting down with The Verge, Mrs. Obama speaks on her rise to social media fame, how she became so engulfed in it, and why she thinks it’s so important.
“This platform is so unique,” the First Lady says of the White House and her use of social media. “We will never have it again. So we will spend these twelve months on every issue making sure we’re driving to the very end. We figure we want to drop the mic on some of this stuff.”
The interview was shot in a 360 degree angle, so it’s recommended to watch it on the YouTube app on a mobile device for the full experience. Either way, the video is below and we encourage you to read the full story at The Verge.
