Ellen DeGeneres pays tribute to the Obama family!

Ellen DeGeneres is one of Barack Obama’s biggest fans.So, on his last day as President of the United States, she wanted to look back at 10 years of interviews with the commander-in-chief and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama. “I want to personally thank him for changing my life. I am a legally married woman because of him, and so is my wife,” she said, referring to actress Portia De Rossi, whom she married in August 2008. “His courage and compassion created equality for everyone. He moved us forward and made more happen in the past eight years than I ever dreamed possible. I love him. I love Michelle.”

Ellen then showed a highlight reel of the couple’s best moments on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Barack made his first appearance on Oct. 29, 2007, where he demonstrated his slick dance moves. Michelle later showed her husband up when she made her first appearance on Sept. 8, 2008. “Your husband’s a good dancer,” Ellen admitted, “but you are a better dancer than him.””I know!” Michelle laughed. “That’s what I’ve been telling him.”

Other highlights included Ellen and Michelle’s push-up contest in 2012, as well as their CVS shopping spree in 2016. And who could forget Barack’s Valentine’s Day message to Michelle? In the same episode, he fielded questions from 6-year-old presidential expert Macey Hensley.

It’s no secret the Obamas admire Ellen as much as she admires them.
