Here’s Michelle Obama on Last Night’s ‘Parks and Recreation’
Thursday night’s Parks and Recreation season finale included a very special cameo from the First Lady herself, Michelle Obama. Obama, of course, played herself, bumping into Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope while she’s in Chicago interviewing for a new job with the National Parks Service.
This is not the first time a real life politician has flustered Leslie Knope on Parks. Joe Biden, Newt Gingrich, John McCain, Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe have all guest starred on the show before. And it’s not FLOTUS’ only television appearance this season, MObama will also appear on an episode of Nashville airing May 7.
While the schtick with these political cameos is always sort of the same, it never really gets old seeing Leslie’s face light up meeting her heroes. Now if only we can get Leslie’s number one, Hillary Clinton on next season.
