FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, joined Snapchat yesterday but her intentions were not to just share silly selfies and puppy filters. Her second snap that was sent was with James Cordon announcing she will appear on Carpool Karaoke with the Late Late Show host.
The airdate of the segment has yet to be released but some teaser footage has been released on her Snapchat. Michelle Obama is by far the best and most involved First Lady the United States and her collection of social media accounts proves it.
The Obamas are the most media aware presidential family the US has had. President Obama was the first sitting president to appear on a late night talk show. He even created his own POTUS twitter handle that will travel with the presidency. Mrs. Obama even has her own FLOTUS twitter handle and instagram account.
It is part of the First Ladies job to be involved in their own projects and Mrs. Obama has taken that job and has gone above and beyond. She has “Let’s Move” which is a program to fight childhood obesity and #Turnipforwhat which is trying to promote healthy eating.
She won’t be posting Snapchat filter selfies but she will use it for her movement. A spokesperson for Mrs. Obama stated that her Snapchat will be filled with pictures from her upcoming trip to Liberia, Morocco and Spain to promote education for girls. Her daughters Malia and Sasha will join her as well as Meryl Streep and Freida Pinto. Mrs. Obama is also a regular person so of course she will post pictures of her garden and her dogs.
The First Lady’s episode is going to kill in the ratings and might even pass Adele’s in youtube views. FLOTUS doesn’t have a music career so it is going to be very interesting her and James Cordon are going to sing and even more interesting on what they are going to talk about.
