First Lady Michelle Obama revealed on The Today Show Wednesday that she frequents Washington, D.C. area stores and eateries incognito.
“It’s amazing how people don’t recognize you, they don’t expect to see me at Starbucks or Chipotle,’ Mrs. Obama told NBC’s Al Roker.
Despite living in the White House and having a 24-hour security detail, the first lady will often run her own errands. She’s even been out on the town with Bo, the Obama’s Portuguese Water Dog, and she’s treated her two daughters to ice cream at Baskin-Robbins a few times.
The first lady was photographed last month pushing a shopping cart and carrying bags at a Target store outside Washington.
