First Lady Michelle Obama joined Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell, who were both dressed in drag, for a sketch last night on the Tonight Show.

Michelle Obama uses the comedy skit to talk up exercising--and they also talk about the Olympics. Then they discuss unhealthy foods, and she makes Fallon and Ferrell eat kale chips instead of potato chips, which they all act like they enjoy eating.

"With Fallon in as the host of the faux teeny bopper show 'Ew!,' he was joined by a pigtailed Will Ferrell and the first lady," TPM explains.
