Michelle Obama Will Do a Dead-on Impression of Barack, but Would Rather Be Stranded on an Island with Beyoncé

In a bid to make us miss them even more/develop late-onset abandonment issues (DON'T LEAVE US PLS), the Obamas have been turning up the charm to 15. On the latest stop of the First Lady's farewell tour, Tuesday's Late Show with Stephen Colbert, she delivered a triple whammy of good humor, some light roasting of her husband, and Beyoncé.

One, this quote about the future. "It's definitely bittersweet," she said. "Everything is the last and I find myself choking up. We've raised our kids in the White House. We live in a house where people care about us and love us. It's going to be hard to walk away from that."

Next, her interpretation of what the president sounds like when Malia asks him about global warming at dinner, while she and Sasha are like "Can we talk about 'Hold Up' instead?"

And finally, Pirate Joe Biden. More Beyoncé. And "improve access to education for the 62 million girls worldwide who are not in school."
