Michelle Obama reveals what was in that Tiffany box from Melania Trump

Michelle Obama reveals what was in that Tiffany box from Melania Trump

Michelle Obama has finally revealed what was in that blue Tiffany's box that Melania Trump gave her on Inauguration Day a year ago.

Obama went on to reveal that the Trumps gave them a "lovely frame" before explaining why she was so confused. "I was like, 'What do you do with the box?'" "What am I supposed to do with this gift?'" Obama explained.

Former President Barack Obama transferred executive power to Donald Trump on January 20, 2017, but that wasn't the only memorable exchange that took place that day.

One perhaps vividly remembers that expression on Michelle's face as she was handed the present - that mixture of surprise and embarrassment when she was frantically casting glances around looking for staffers to take the box from her. But everybody cleared out.

In a preview of Obama's appearance on the daytime talk show, DeGeneres questions the ivy league grad about the comical moment that left Michelle with a hilariously confusing facial expression. "He grabbed the box and took it back inside".

On the morning of the inauguration, Donald Trump quickly got out of his auto at the White House to greet Michelle and Barack Obama, leaving his wife trailing behind holding a blue gift box.

"And then my husband saved the day", Obama told Ellen as they played a video of the entire awkward exchange. The mystery of the Tiffany box is solved. But everybody cleared out - no staff, no one.

In an interview set to air Thursday, Obama told the host that the problem wasn't that the gift was unwelcome. "I was like what do you do with the box?"
