Her husband is in the final days of his bid for re-election, and Michelle Obama showed up at “ Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night (October 25) to give him a boost.

The First Lady of the United States of America shared that her daughters Sasha and Malia gave President Obama some great advice before giving a recent address.

Michelle said the girls begged him to try not to look bored. “That was the instruction before he gave his speech at the DNC. We’re backstage and they’re playing around and they’re laughing and they’re giggling and he said, ‘Just act like you’re listening to me!’”

“The whole time, I’m clapping and looking over at them and I’m like, ‘Smile. Smile.’ and they’re like, ‘Oh, OK,’” she added.

Mrs. Obama also urged folks to vote early if possible- “You don’t know what’s going to happen on Election Day. Babysitters, you might be sick, car breaks down.”

As for her opinion on President Obama’s pursuits, Michelle shared, “You know, even when Barack talked about entering politics, I was very hesitant. But then I thought about the kind of person that I would want to lead the country, and I felt that to deny him that right would be selfish. So we’re in it.”
