WASHINGTON D.C. — Former President of the United States, Barack Obama, made a surprise appearance at Michelle Obama’s book tour in Washington.
He showed up with a bouquet of flowers during the former First Lady’s promotional event for her memoir, “Becoming,” in the nation’s capital on Saturday night.
“This is like – you know when Jay-Z comes out during the Beyonce concert? … Like, Crazy in Love?” he said, referring to instances when the rapper appears at his wife’s concerts during performances of her famous song. “It’s the same thing. It’s just a little sample to enhance the concert.”
