In an interview on BET last night with Bow Wow and Keshia Chante, First Lady Michelle Obama talked up her husband, President Barack Obama. "I always say my husband has got swag," said Mrs. Obama. "He’s got a little swag." The audience applauded.

Mrs. Obama also said that the president of the United States "sings all the time." She continued, "Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing."

She also praised her husband. "[H]e has got a good voice."

Here's video, via the Washington Free Beacon:

Here's a transcript of that exchange:

MRS. OBAMA: Question number two: On a scale of 1 to 10, how awesome was it when the President started singing “Let’s Stay Together” -- Al Green? That was pretty awesome. I mean, he’s got a pretty good voice.

Q He does.

MRS. OBAMA: I always say my husband has got swag. He’s got a little swag. (Applause.)

Q He definitely does.

MRS. OBAMA: It was really sweet. But he sings all the time. Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing. He is always willing to sing. He’s like, you want me to sing now, want me to sing something for you? But he has got a good voice. That was very sweet.
