WATCH: Michelle Obama In Defense Of Kale Chips On Late Show With David Letterman

Michelle Obama stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman last night while some other thing was going on in Florida to talk about the hard-hitting topics she faces every day in the White House. Like kale chips. She was educating David on her Let’s Move Campaign, and filling him in on what went down at the Kids’ State Dinner (did you know we’re supposed to call them School Lunch Room Chefs now? Don’t tell Michael Symon…), when David revealed that he initially thought kale chips were a joke.

“It looks like something you’d fish out of the bottom of your lawn mower,” he said.

Michelle got stern, of course, and told him not to knock them. But he conceded, after trying them, “By God they were tasty. Hats off to Kale Chips!”
