Letterman asked the First Lady if she has been following coverage of the Republican Convention in Tampa:

David Letterman: “The Republican Convention’s concluding. They had some trouble with the weather. Did you see any of the convention?”

Mrs. Michelle Obama: “You know, no. I – well, first…Well, no, let me start by saying I, as the wife of the guy they’re running against, I tend not to watch it, but I think it’s important for everyone to watch these conventions because this is the time you get to know the party, you understand the platform, you understand the candidates.

David Letterman later asked Mrs. Michelle Obama about whether she and the President, Barack Obama, discuss other politicians gaffes when they are at home:

David Letterman: “I don’t mean to put you on the spot here.”

Mrs. Obama (laughs): “Yes, you do. Yes, you do.”

David Letterman: “I’m just trying to make friends. When you have a guy, and I don’t want to embarrass anybody.”

Mrs. Obama: “A guy like my husband?”

David Letterman: “No, like Todd Akin…And, for whatever reason, he says something that he wishes he hadn’t said, and there’s some embarrassment and is it a big deal? Is it not a big deal? I don’t know, dumb guys are allowed to say dumb things?”

Mrs. Michelle Obama (jokes): “That’s how guys are.”

David Letterman (laughs): “That’s right. Does your husband (Barack Obama) ever come home and say to you, ‘Hey, did you see what Todd Akin said?’ …And then you keep moving – does that happen or not happen? A little bit? Not at all?”

Mrs. Obama: “There are moments when there are interesting things that happen, and we discuss them. There are times.”

David Letterman (laughs): “All right, good enough.”
