Michelle Obama slams Barack over joke about gymnastics routine with Simon Biles

Former First Lady Michelle Obama slammed former President Barack Obama in a response to his joke over doing a gymnastics routine with Olympic great Simon Biles.

“He can’t touch his toes!” the former first lady teased in response.

The story

“I want you to know that I was going to do, like, a floor routine on the way out with Simone. But we decided it was a little too crowded,” the former president told his audience, who laughed at the humor.

His wife’s response added to the moment, bringing even more laughter from the listeners.

A great moment for USA sports

“One of the reasons our country is so proud of this year’s Team USA is 2016 belonged to America’s women Olympians,” he also said.

“As the father of two young women, for them to have that example of health, and drive, and competition, and persistence, and strength – it makes me really proud,” he added.

The gymnasts were among the last Olympic athletes the Obamas hosted at the White House in a year marked by many notable athletic achievements.

The memory of Team USA’s gymnastics team comes as the team marks six years since the key win, offering a moment that will live on for years to come.

It also comes two years ahead of the next Olympic Games where the U.S. hopes to once again bring home gold as the location moves to Paris.
