MICHELLE OBAMA: I FREQUENTLY SNEAK OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE
“I do that more frequently than people realize. And It’s amazing how people don’t recognize you,” she said. “They don’t expect to see me at Starbucks or at Chipotle. I actually took Bo to Petco and the cashier asked me, “Oh what kind of dog is that?’ I said, ‘A Portuguese water dog.’ He didn’t recognize us, because he didn’t expect that we would be in Petco.’
Mrs. O. admitted, “My secret’s out, but we try to sneak out as much as possible. It helps to keep our kids lives’ normal.”
So the cashier at Target didn’t even look twice at the credit card?
“He recognized me,” she said, but added that it’s amazing how “plenty of people” simply don’t because they can’t believe it.
“I’ve been in Baskin and Robbins a number of times. You know how the kids aren’t really paying attention. They’re looking right through me.”
Host Al Roker then asked if she made sneak trips to Costco to buy toilet paper. “Um, we pretty much have our supplies stocked,” said the First Lady.
