Vacationer-in-Chief or Moocher-in-Chief would be more apt descriptions.
Today Show correspondent Jenna Bush Hager interviews Michelle Obama about Christmas in the White House, and the first lady explains her role during the holidays is “hostess-in-chief:”
“This is the most special time to be in the White House. It’s the one time of the year when we really open up the White House. We have thousands and thousands of visitors just streaming through every day. It’s beautiful, everything looks great, the smells are magnificent. So it’s just special, very special,” Obama told Bush Hager, who spent many a Christmas in the White House when her father, George W. Bush, was president.
The White House has estimated that some 90,000 people will have visited during the holidays this year.
“I’m the hostess in chief. We host a number of events here for a whole range of people,” the first lady said.
