Push-Up Challenge: Michelle Obama Vs. Ellen DeGeneres [VIDEO]

this exists


We already know First Lady Michelle Obama puts a high priority on staying fit and healthy but we’ve got a new piece of evidence that shows she’s also pretty competitive about it as well. Watch this clip from The Ellen DeGeneres Show where the comedian and the First Lady go head-to-head to see who can do the most push-ups. I had a good feeling going in who would win.
