Michelle Obama has been slammed for her classless response on Jimmy Fallon to what her emotions were like as she left the White House on her last day.
Appearing on “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday, Michelle Obama responded to host Jimmy Fallon’s question about what was going through her mind as she and her husband, former President Barack Obama, boarded the plane to leave Washington, D.C. on January 20, 2017.
“Bye, Felicia,” she replied, drawing cheers from the audience and sending Fallon into a fit of laughter.
According to Ice Cube, who coined the phrase when he starred in the 1995 flick Friday and co-wrote its script, “Bye, Felicia” is “the phrase ‘to get anyone out of your face’,” and, as it was used in the Friday scene, is generally intended as a dismissive kiss-off.
“A lot was going on that day, that was a day,” she said. “Right before that, my daughters’ friends decided they needed a sleepover for the last day, I was like ‘are you guys kidding me, we’re leaving, you’ve gotta take all your stuff.’”
“And then there was the Tiffany’s box,” Obama added, making an insulting reference to the gift box that Melania Trump gave her outside of the White House during the transition.
“It was a lot,” she recalled.
