There are quite a lot of memorable moments (for better or worse) from Donald Trump’s inauguration day in 2017, but one in every of probably the most complicated ones was once his and Melania’s gift trade with the Obamas prior to the swearing-in ceremony.

While we’ve shared, memed and probably recreated that Michelle Obama face throughout 2017, we never had a full explanation for why she made it. But in a new preview of her upcoming appearance on Ellen, she finally cleared the air—one year later.

“Well, there’s all this protocol. I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you’re going to do this, they’re going to stand here. Never before do they say you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, ‘Okay,'” Obama said, describing her confusion during the exchange.

The Former FLOTUS recalled now not understanding the place to put the present considering the fact that all of her staff used to be already out of the White House. “What am I supposed to do with this reward?” she remembered thinking. “and everyone cleared out, and nobody may come and take the box. And I’m thinking, ‘Do we take the picture with it?’

“After Which my husband stored the day. See, he grabbed the box and took it again inside of. However everyone cleared out. No personnel, no one. i used to be like, what do you do with the field?”

Oh, and the reward throughout the field? “It was once a ravishing frame,” she revealed.
