Ellen Embarrasses Michelle Obama at Costco

"What aisle is the foot fungus medicine on? Michelle is asking for foot fungus medicine."

Ellen Degeneres caused quite a scene when she took Michelle Obama to a Costco in Burbank for her show on Thursday.

The pair were there to sign copies of Michelle’s new memoir, Becoming, and I do mean they were BOTH there to sign the book.

In the video, Ellen, naturally, does everything she could to trip up the former First Lady-turned-author as she chats with fans and tries to keep the composure and grace she’s so well-known for.

“Michelle! What did you put in here?” Ellen exclaims partway through the session, pulling a flask out of a hollowed out copy of the book.

Michelle also took the time to sit down with Ellen on her show and discuss moments from her memoir, including whose inauguration was bigger, Barack’s or Trump’s.

At one point during the signing, Ellen wheels a display keyboard around the corner singing “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain” and insists Michelle play for the captive audience.

“This is not like a regular piano,” Michelle complains, fumbling with the limited and lightweight keys before returning to the table to sign more autographs.

The crowd of lucky Costco-goers clearly had a great time witnessing the antics and getting to meet Michelle, and were all too ready to join in when Ellen ended the visit by leading everyone in a chant of “I miss the Obamas!”

We believe it.
