During a press conference at The White House to promote healthy eating and exercise for American kids, Michelle Obama invited surprise guests Elmo and Rosita from Sesame Street. As usual, Michelle looks absolutely in great shape, and not scared to show off her toned arms, lol... and the muppets are just adorable! More pics and the transcript below...
