Michelle Obama to Letterman: I'll Help You Raise Your Child

By    |   Thursday, 30 Apr 2015 09:20 PM

In an appearance airing Thursday night, first lady Michelle Obama offered to help David Letterman through his retirement when he steps down as host of CBS' "The Late Show" in May.

Letterman noted that he will be leaving in a few weeks while Obama will be giving up her position at the White House in less than two years when President Barack Obama's second term ends.

Letterman had previously joked that Michelle Obama might be seeking the Oval Office herself, and told her while she was being interviewed, "It’s something to consider."

Obama suggested instead that the two should hang out together.

"We could do things – I would help you raise your children … I can help you through those dark times," she said.

Letterman has one son, Harry, who is 11.

Letterman called the offer "both delightful and pathetic," saying the media would likely report: "Did you hear what the president’s wife is doing now?"

"You seem so challenged," Obama responded. "It's a scary thing for you. I could walk you through it. I could take you down that road, that Grumpy Cat road. I could get you out on the other side. You're gonna be fine, Dave."

Before her segment was over, Obama surprised Letterman with a performance by the Marine Corps Band, Deadline Hollywood reported.
