Michelle Obama famously said “When they go low we go high.”
Watch whole interview with Fallon
But on Tuesday night she went lower than low as she took shots at both President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump,
Michelle Obama poked fun at the Trumps last night when Jimmy Fallon asked what she was thinking when she left Capitol Hill on her last day as the First Lady.
Fallon showed her a picture of her and Barack boarding Air Force One after Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.
He said: ‘This is you, this is after the Trump inauguration just waving from Air Force One. Can you just walk me through what…
‘Bye Felicia,’ Obama blurted out, drawing rapturous applause and whooping from the audience of NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The phrase is used to say goodbye to someone you dislike or don’t care about.
Also on the show, she pulled a face when discussing the moment Melania Trump awkwardly gave her a gift at the inauguration.
Melania had given her a Tiffany’s box containing a ‘lovely frame’ – which she received in front of the cameras, pulling a face indicating it had caught her off guard.
After a few seconds of not knowing what to do with the gift, Barack took it from her and gave it to a member of staff.
Describing her final moments as the First Lady, Obama said: ‘A lot was going on that day.
‘Right before that my daughters’ friends decided they needed a sleepover for the last day. I was like: “are you guys kidding me?” ‘
She said she told them: ‘We’re leaving, you’ve got to take all your stuff, pick up the blankets and the bears,’ adding, ‘and they were all crying and I was just like “get out, we’ve got to go”.’
Referring to Melania’s gift, she added: ‘So, there was that and then there was the Tiffany’s box. ‘It was just a lot.’
The Daily Mail’s Piers Morgan did not appreciate it and teed off on her.
Just when I thought there was one person in public life that soared effortlessly and admirably above the incessantly ugly partisan trash-talk that pervades every second of American airspace these days, Mrs Obama has let me down.
And frankly, she has let herself down too.
Appearing on last night’s Jimmy Fallon show, Michelle inexplicably decided to plunge the bitchy knife firmly into the back of her successor as First Lady, Melania Trump…
The phrase ‘Bye Felicia’ is an intensely derogatory one.
It was first coined by rapper Ice Cube’s character Craig in the 1995 cult stoner comedy movie, Friday.
A local girl named Felicia who annoys the neighborhood with her constant begging, and shameless attempts to live off others, annoys Craig.
When she asks if she can borrow his car, and a marijuana joint, he point blank refuses, then looks away and says simply ‘Bye, Felicia’ in a dismissive tone.
The phrase is now widely used, especially on social media, as an ice cold ‘kiss off’ for unpleasant people who you want to avoid.
