With the inauguration set for Jan. 20, first lady Michelle Obama took some memorable last pictures and videos of one of her last days in the White House before she and her family move out (video below).
On Jan. 18, she walked through its halls with her dogs, Sunny and Bo, sharing a video of her stroll on Twitter, the Daily Mail reports.
“Taking it in on one last walk through the People’s House,” reads the tweet, ABC News reports.
She and her pets ended up at the Executive Residence where she cozied up to her husband to enjoy the view from the Truman Balcony for one of the last times.
She shared a photograph of the moment on social media to thank her fans for their dedication throughout the years. She wrote as a caption: “Being your First Lady has been the honor of a lifetime. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
The Obamas will leave the White House on Jan. 20 as President-elect Donald Trump and his family become the new residents.
The soon-to-be-former first family are moving to the upscale Washington, D.C., neighborhood of Kalorama while daughter Sasha finishes high school.
As movers prepare their new home, both the president and the first lady are enjoying their last moments in the house they’ve lived in for eight years.
President Barack Obama issued a caution to the incoming president during his final press conference in the White House briefing room.
He said he would speak out if he felt “our core values” were “at stake,” and would step in if Trump started “rounding up” children to be deported.
“If I saw systematic discrimination [is] being ratified in some fashion. I put in that category explicit or functional obstacles to people being able to vote, to exercise their franchise,” he said.
“And for me, at least, I would put in that category efforts to round up kids who have grown up here and for all practical purposes are American kids, and send them someplace else, when they love this country, they are our kids’ friends and their classmates and are now entering into community colleges or in some cases serving in our military.”
He added, “The notion that we would just arbitrarily, or because of politics, punish those kids, when they didn’t do anything wrong themselves, I think would be something that would merit me speaking out.”
“It doesn’t mean that I would get on the ballot anywhere,” he noted.
Michelle Obama got emotional as she delivered her farewell speech to the country on Jan. 11: “Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life and I hope I’ve made you proud.”
Meanwhile, movers were seen hauling the Obamas’ personal effects and furniture into their new Kalorama property on Jan. 18.
Michelle Obama has not taken seriously the frequent suggestions she run for office but has not yet announced specific plans for the future, despite signaling she will be continuing her work with education and young people.
President Obama, in turn, said on Jan. 18 that he intends to “be quiet” for a while.
