Michelle Obama Says Barack Wore the Same Tux for 8 Years!

Here’s something you probably never realized about former President Barack Obama – he wore the same tuxedo for all of his appearances during his eight years in office!

Michelle Obama opened up about her husband’s simple outfit choice while talking about the pressure for her to wear different things during every appearance.

“That’s the unfair thing,” Michelle said said at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference this week (via Us Weekly). “No matter what we do, he puts on that same tux.”

“Now, people take pictures of the shoes I wear, the bracelets, the necklace,” she said. “They didn’t comment [on] that for eight years, he wore that same tux, same shoes.”

“He was proud of it too,” Michelle added. “He was like, ‘Mm! I’m ready. I’m ready in 10 minutes. Mmm — how long did it take you?’”

Barack & Michelle Obama Purchase Washington D.C. Home

Barack and Michelle Obama have officially purchased their Washington D.C. rental home!

The former president and first lady were temporarily renting a home following their move from the White House earlier this year but have now made things official.

“Given that President and Mrs. Obama will be in Washington for at least another two and a half years, it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property,” spokesperson Kevin Lewis said in a statement to People.

Barack and Michelle will be staying the capitol until their 15-year-old daughter Sasha finishes high school at Sidwell Friends School in 2019.

Their new home is 8,200-square-feet and features eight bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms, which reportedly cost $8.1 million.

Barack Obama Visits Prince Harry at Kensington Palace

Former President Barack Obama meets up with Prince Harry while visiting Kensington Palace on Saturday (May 27) in London, England.

“They discussed a range of shared interests including support for veterans, mental health, conservation, empowering young people and the work of their respective foundations,” the palace said in a statement.

Obama also offered his condolences to the victims of the Manchester attack earlier this week.

“As the father of two daughters, I am heartbroken by the extraordinary tragedy that has occurred in Manchester,” Obama said in a video message the other day during a visit to Berlin. “To all the families who have been affected, to all those who are still recovering, to those who have lost loved ones, it’s unimaginable to think about the cruelty and the violence that the city of Manchester has suffered.”

Barack Obama Gives First Speech Since Leaving Office At Seeds&Chips Summit - Watch Here!

Former President Barack Obama gave his first speech outside the United States since leaving office!

Barack, 55, talked briefly about climate change and the challenges it presented to feeding the world’s growing population at the Seeds&Chips Global Food Innovation Summit on Tuesday (May 9) in Milan, Italy.

“When we think about issues like food security or climate change, ultimately politicians can help guide policy, but the energy to bring about change is going to come from what people do every day,” Barack said. “It’s going to come from parents who are concerned about the impact climate change may have on their child, from business people who say how can we use less energy or waste less resources in making our products. It’s millions of decisions made individually that have the ability to make changes.”

“Obviously, the current administration has differences with my administration in terms of energy policy, and that’s part of what happens in democracy,” Barack added. “There will be a useful debate in America, but I think the good news is that, in part because of what we did over the last eight years, the private sector has already made a decision that the future is in clean energy.”
