Trevor Noah called out former First Lady Michelle Obama on a special episode of “The Daily Show” on Friday. According to Noah, Obama had a complete inability to make the perfect poker face.
“For me the person who most captured the feeling of the day was First Lady Michelle Obama,” Noah said. “It was all over her face.”
Noah showed Obama receiving a Tiffany’s box that Melania Trump brought her and the awkward expression where she didn’t know what to do with it.
“She clearly did not want” it, “Noah joked. “And look at Obama! Look at him! He’s like, ‘Uhhh, just put it anywhere, I’m moving. Just put it anywhere.'”
Noah also revealed the unfortunate gift that was inside of it. “It was just a tiny note from Melania that said, ‘HELP!'”
Noah explained that the whole day showed Mrs. Obama as the “barometer of America’s feelings.” Over and over, Noah showed expressions from Mrs. Obama that he explained represented a perfect “Oh, hell no,” face.
“That face is every emotion rolled into one,” Noah said. “That’s like, ‘Bye, Felicia,’ ‘Boi-bye,’ ‘I’d like to speak to your manager,’ ‘I’m so done,’ all rolled into one.”

Hong Kong marks Tiananmen crackdown as anthem insults and vigil banned
Hong Kong marked China's deadly Tiananmen crackdown on Thursday, with candle-light ceremonies planned across the city after authorities banned a mass vigil at a time of seething anger over a planned new security law.
The commemorations fell on another febrile day of political tension in the semi-autonomous city as lawmakers approved a Beijing-backed bill criminalizing insults to China's national anthem.
Pro-democracy politicians refused to cast their ballots with one throwing a foul-smelling liquid on the floor in a bid to halt proceedings and others shouting slogans as the votes were cast.
Fury as New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees criticizes NFL kneeling protests
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees sparked a furious backlash as he refused to support renewed NFL kneeling protests on Wednesday, saying to do so would be "disrespecting" the United States flag.
As a wave of demonstrations against police brutality and racism sweeps across the US, many athletes have voiced support for former NFL star Colin Kaepernick, who ignited controversy in 2016 by kneeling during the US national anthem.
Former San Francisco 49ers star Kaepernick, who said he was trying to draw attention to racial injustice, was later frozen out of the league and has been unemployed since being released in 2017.
