Ellen DeGeneres has all the fun! If she’s not hamming it up with Sofia Vergara then she’s doing push-ups with First Lady Michelle Obama. Last week Ellen went toe to toe with the First Lady in a push-up duel that resulted in what appeared to be a win for Mrs. Obama. But Ellen, who appears to be just a tad competitive, dissected the video on her show using a pointer to illustrate just where the First Lady’s form was off.
Mrs. Obama had stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about her physical fitness routine, among other things, as physical fitness is integral to the First Lady's "Let's Move" campaign.
While the First Lady was explaining her daily fitness routine Ellen threw down a gauntlet asking if Mrs. Obama could do more push-ups than her, sparking a duel of sorts.
Not one to play, Mrs. Obama said she didn’t know because Ellen has all of her “back issues.”
Here is DeGeneres dissecting the push-up contest, alleging she gave up because she didn’t want to “embarrass” the First Lady. She later conceded, that no matter who won, they both did great.
