Michelle Obama has revealed during a candid conversation that her husband, Barack Obama wore the same tuxedo for all eight years of his presidency during state dinners.
She said this during her appearance at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California on Tuesday.
She noted how she was photographed and scrutinized year in and year out for the dresses and accessories she sported for state dinners as they were highly publicized events. But she said the former president easily got away with wearing the same outfit every year to state dinners.
‘This is the unfair thing — you talk about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers — no matter what we do, he puts on that same tux,’ she said.
‘Now, people take pictures of the shoes I wear, the bracelets, the necklace — they didn’t comment that for eight years he wore the same tux, same shoes.’
She continued, ‘And he was proud of it too. He’s like, ‘Mmm, I’m ready. I’m ready in 10 minutes. How long did it take you?’ I’m like, ‘Get out of here.’ ‘
