It’s been a busy news day for presidential spouses.
Current First Lady Melania Trump has been raising eyebrows for her near complete media blackout. Mrs. Trump canceled all public appearances soon after news broke about the alleged 2006 affair President Trump had with porn star Stormy Daniels, just months after Melania gave birth to their son, Barron.
Last night’s State of the Union address was the first time Melania appeared in public in weeks, and even then she made history by taking her own motorcade to the capitol building without the president.
Former first lady Michelle Obama, however, has enjoyed much better press in recent days. She stormed back into the news Wednesday with an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show that had social media buzzing. The episode will air Thursday.
But later in the day, Mrs. Obama reminded us that a true First Lady doesn’t stop inspiring us when she leaves the White House.
Twitter user Audrey Dow tweeted a photo of her 9-year-old daughter, who had dressed up as First Lady Obama for a school assignment.
Today my 9 year old was @MichelleObama for her 3rd grade Open House project. She was inspired by her work to make sure more kids go to college & #ReachHigher . She loves that Mrs Obama is brown & has hair like hers #ISawMyself pic.twitter.com/RYmWumAdHM

“Today my 9 year old was Michelle Obama for her 3rd grade Open House project,” Dow wrote. “She was inspired by her work to make sure more kids go to college & #ReachHigher. She loves that Mrs Obama is brown & has hair like hers #ISawMyself”
Michelle Obama, who never misses an opportunity to reward and inspire young women across the globe, took to Twitter and broke the internet with her replay, and made a young girl’s year in the process.
This just made my day. I may not be a 3rd grade teacher, but this gets an A+ in my book! https://t.co/wBTzbyG8zr

Even without the title, Michelle Obama is still first class.
