Tuesday night saw President Barack Obama’s farewell speech from Chicago. Wednesday night marked First Lady Michelle Obama’s final appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (as FLOTUS, anyway). Shit is getting real.
Fallon devoted all of last night’s show to Obama, as well he should. After all, this is the woman who did the Dougie and gamely participated in an “Ew!” skit. She’s earned some respect.

Fallon also recruited comedians Jerry Seinfeld and Dave Chappelle for a round of “Catchphrase.” Seinfeld hilariously wore a tuxedo for the occasion, because, as we all know, dude is incapable of being on an NBC talk show without making a fashion statement.
