First Lady Michelle Obama appeared on the Tonight Show with its new host, Jimmy Fallon, on Thursday night and while there, she promoted her husband’s Obamacare. She also promoted her own initiative, the Let’s Move campaign.
She talked about the younger generation, calling them “knuckleheads” who need health insurance.
“A lot of young people think they’re invincible,” she said, TIME reports. “But they truth is young people are knuckleheads. They’re the ones who are cooking for the first time and slice their finger open. They’re dancing on the bar stool.”
With the help of Fallon and guest Will Ferrell, Obama was able to tout her Let’s Move campaign through a skit that featured the comedians as teenage girls. He brought back the “Ew!” skit from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just for her.
In the skit, FLOTUS emphasized the importance of exercising and eating healthy.
"I do try to exercise every day," she said to Fallon, who plays Sara. Ferrell’s character Stacey called exercise “ew!” and Obama said, "Exercise is not ew! You just have to find an activity that's right for you. For example, I like to dance, play tennis and even do some push-ups.”
When the group later called potato chips “ew!” Obama said, “You know, instead of potato chips, a healthy alternative is kale chips.”
