Michelle Obama snuck out the White House to celebrate marriage equality

"The whole eight years we were in the White House, we used Laura Bush's Netflix password", she said to massive laughs from the audience.

The former first lady recounted the venture in her new memoir "Becoming" but told the story to Ellen DeGeneres on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show".

When the U.S. Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land federally, thousands flocked to the rainbow-lit White House to celebrate the news.

"You're not first lady anymore and as far as I'm concerned you can cut loose and really say anything now, right?"

"We had wonderful people in our administration", the former first lady said, knocking the current administration.

Before wrapping up the interview, Kimmel handed Obama several outlandish statements he insisted she could read out loud because she's no longer the first lady. And my staff was calling me, everybody was celebrating, people were crying, and I thought, I want to be in that. What, were you expecting her to reveal national security secrets, or something? Instead, the Obamas' eldest daughter Malia chose to join.

She also quipped: "I'm not sure which one is Sasha and which one is Malia", adding an ad-lib: "You know?"

"It took 15 minutes to get outside".

"You know how we feel?" But we just took it in.

She wrote that in 1992 when her husband, President Barack Obama, brought her to the country, the tour was frustrating from the onset, therefore making the rest of it a nightmare. I held her tight, and my feeling was, we are moving forward.
