Catch the whole interview with the former First Lady on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday, Feb. 1.
Former first lady Michelle Obama offered a passionate appeal for empathy during her first televised interview since leaving the White House a year ago.
Before leaving the White House on January 31, 2017, Obama sat down with Oprah Winfrey for her final interview as First Lady. "Forget what they're saying in Washington". "And that's the truth of who we are, so you can't lose sight of that".
People should be encouraged "to do the things we do every day, to love each other, to take care of each other, to show empathy", Ms Obama said. DeGeneres's wife, Portia de Rossi, shares DeGeneres's lifelong admiration of Dian Fossey, who dedicated her life to mountain gorillas and conserving their habitat.

"Even if people didn't agree with me or my husband, they were kind, they were hardworking, they were trying to do the right things every day", she said. "We are this mosh pit of society and sometimes there's a rub".

She might be out of the White House, but that doesn't mean Sasha Obama doesn't have a luxurious bedroom.
"Never before do you get this gift, so I'm sort of like, 'O.K., what am I supposed to do with this gift?'" Obama said. He doesn't have enough closet space - sorry - he's got the smallest room for his office, and Sasha actually killed in this house.
Her youngest daughter Sasha, meanwhile, scored a multi-room suite.
Upon greeting the Trumps outside the White House during the presidential transition, Melania handed the outgoing first lady a blue Tiffany's box. However, Mrs. Obama did not realize what happened because she was focused on the gift.
And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. "And I'm thinking, do we take the picture with?" she continued.
