Michelle Obama: NYC fundraiser 'sort of like our date night'

The President and First Lady flirted with each other and talked humorously about their relationship and time in the White House at a Democratic fundraiser in New York City on Tuesday evening.

"It's great to be here with my husband because the truth is we rarely get to travel together anymore. They separate us, it's like you're over there, you're over there, so this is like our date night," said Michelle Obama on stage at the fundraiser.

After the First Lady had left the stage President Obama asked the audience, "What do you think about Michelle Obama?"

"She's not bad," he joked.

"You notice how she's getting cuter? She is remarkable and it is the reason I have remarkable kids. I have improved my gene pool. And it is true this is the closest we get to a date." added Obama.
