Michelle Obama will only be serving as our country's first lady for seven more days, and some people are handling the reality of her departure pretty hard. Jimmy Fallon invited civilians to express their gratitude for everything the FLOTUS has done by inviting them to record messages for her, but they soon got the surprise of their lives when Mrs. Obama emerged from behind a curtain to greet her overwhelmed fans in the flesh. There were hugs, there were tears, and although you can't hear it on the video, I'm willing to bet at least one person whispered "DON'T GO" into her ear.

Is no one going to address how awkward it is to stand there and talk to a portrait of Michelle Obama? Oh well.

After meeting the first lady, Jimmy Fallon also popped out from behind the curtain, but no one seemed quite as excited to see him as they did Mrs. O. Maybe that is because they know they are in for four years of him tousling Trump's hair.
