Asked about first lady Michelle Obama’s incognito trip to Target Thursday, President Obama joked today that he doesn’t envy her secretive shopping. “I don’t even want to shop. All I want to do is take a walk,” he told Philadelphia radio host Michael Smerconish.
The day after the first lady was spotted by photographers shopping at the discount retailer in Alexandria, Va., the president said the she always reminds him that “nothing I do is undercover.”
“She always jokes about my motorcade. She gets embarrassed when she goes out with me because there’s an ambulance and a caboose and a dogsled. It trails for about a mile behind me,” he quipped.
The president said he was glad his wife “can sneak off” because “one thing she loves to do is go shopping at Target.”
