Can I pet your dog? Mrs. Obama:
Oh, absolutely. He’s
probably bored. He’s like what are you doing? Visitor:
We’re here from — (indiscernible) in Georgetown. Mrs. Obama:
Oh, yeah, a bunch of others
from — come on in, sweetheart. Visitor:
He’s pretty well behaved. Mrs. Obama:
Yeah, he has a very
good temperment. Visitor:
Did you guys have a
trainer or do you work with him a bit? Mrs. Obama:
We did, when he was
younger we did, but now everybody’s
kind of like, you know, everybody does a little
bit of something. But he’s just got a great
temperment and he’s used to a lot of people. Visitor:
Yeah, he’s used to it.
Thanks for doing this. Mrs. Obama:
There will be 300 kids in the
room and he’ll be doing that. What’s your name, gorgeous? Visitor:
McKinley. Mrs. Obama:
You are beautiful. Visitor:
Thank you. Mrs. Obama:
Can I have a hug. Oh — You’re
gorgeous. How old are you? Visitor:
Eight. Mrs. Obama:
Eight. Who did you come with? Visitor:
Very nice to meet you. Mrs. Obama:
Thank you for bringing her. Visitor:
Oh, this is fantastic. We’re on a dad
and daughter trip. Mrs. Obama:
Oh, nice. You have him all
to yourself? Oh, my gosh. Where are you guys
going to have lunch? Visitor:
The Capitol. We’re going to meet
Senator Roberts. Mrs. Obama:
Oh, wow. Wow, awesome. Cool. Visitor:
From Kansas. Mrs. Obama:
Does she know who
Senator Roberts is? Visitor:
Sure. (laughter) Mrs. Obama:
But there will be
ice cream, I bet. Visitor:
Thank you, thank you very much. Mrs. Obama:
Thank you. How are you? Nice to see you,
where are you from? Visitor:
I’m from California. Mrs. Obama:
Wonderful. It’s great to have
you here. You guys come on in. Come on in. Mrs. Obama:
Absolutely. Give him a pet.
It’s so good to see you. Visitor:
First of all I want
to say belated happy birthday. Mrs. Obama:
Oh, thank you. Visitor:
Thank you so much for your
“Let’s Move” program. Mrs. Obama:
Oh, we’re making some progress. Visitor:
I am so glad,
you look so beautiful, because I was afraid you were
going to ask us to dance. Mrs. Obama:
See, you never know. That’s one thing we could do,
come down here and have people do some push-ups. That would really make you move. Visitor:
Thank you so much. Mrs. Obama:
Thank you. Thank you so much
for being here. You guys are my last visitors. Visitor:
Yes. Mrs. Obama:
What’s going on? You guys are from the
school, you came in late. Visitor:
Yes. And I coordinated, I’m the
person who put it all together, she got left out. Mrs. Obama:
Oh, my gosh. Oops. Yeah,
you can pet him. But first I’ve got to
get my hug, then you can. See Bo all you want.
It’s nice to see you all. Visitor:
You are so pretty. Thank you. Mrs. Obama:
I love those boots. I have never seen
sparkly Uggs before. Those are gorgeous. Thank you, it’s
great to have you. Visitor:
Nice to meet you. Mrs. Obama:
Oh, well you guys, thank you for coming to visit. Visitor:
Thank you for being here. Mrs. Obama:
It’s my pleasure. My pleasure.
Do well in school. Visitor:
Yeah. Mrs. Obama:
Eat your vegetables.
Listen to your teachers. Visitor:
Please. Mrs. Obama:
Stay out of trouble. Read. Visitor:
Please. Mrs. Obama:
Listen to your parents. Visitor:
Thank you. Mrs. Obama:
Sure.
