Michelle Obama: 'No Sympathy' for Spouses of Pres. Candidates

First lady Michelle Obama said she had "no sympathy" for the spouses of presidential candidates.

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert asked if she did, and her response was, "No, not really. You have to be, you know, in it. And if you don't agree, you should have (disagreed) before they ran. The bottom line is, if I didn't agree with what Barack was saying, I would not support his run. So I stand there proudly, and I hope they are, too."

Colbert said he was asking if she had sympathy for what spouses involved in presidential campaigns go through, then he mentioned Donald Trump's wife Melania, whose Republican National Convention speech was said to have copied a speech by Mrs. Obama.

"Yeah, that was tough," Obama said, while the audience laughed.

Colbert then said, "Let's move on," and turned focus to a program that Obama supports to help adolescent girls worldwide get education, called Let Girls Learn.

Obama also joked with Colbert about President Barack Obama's unwillingness to stand still for photo shoots, and did an impression of the president.
