First Lady Surprises White House Tour Guests
Matt | On 20, Jan 2011
In honor of the second anniversary of the inauguration of her husband, First Lady Michelle Obama offered a little surprise to today’s White House tour guests.
For the tour group that showed up this morning, they were greeted by the first lady in person along their tour! This is a pretty rare occurrence, as she has only participated two of these tours in two years. The White House streamed the event live on their website around 10:45 a.m. ET. (We will post the edited video for playback when it becomes available).
So basically, the tour group today hit the proverbial lottery. I know they were shocked to see the First Lady because Secret Service is always quite guarded about the First Family’s location. It was hilarious to see last year’s group (one year ago today) get surprised by Mrs. Obama.
If you’re ever in the Washington, D.C. area and would like to sign up for a White House tour, you can find more information about a visit here. You can join the 1.5 million people that have visited the building since President Obama was sworn into office.
