Michelle Obama Dishes on Awkward Melania Trump Gift Exchange on Inauguration Day

Melania Trump gives Michelle Obama a Tiffany box

Obama went on to reveal that the Trumps gave them a "lovely frame" before explaining why she was so confused.

In a preview of tomorrow's episode, the lawyer and author opened up to DeGeneres about the contents of the mystery Tiffany & Co. box that Melania Trump gifted her on inauguration day.

She appeared on the show on the first of a two-day celebration of DeGeneres' 60th birthday, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Remember when Donald Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States? "What am I supposed to do with this gift?'" Obama explained to DeGeneres.

One perhaps vividly remembers that expression on Michelle's face as she was handed the present - that mixture of surprise and embarrassment when she was frantically casting glances around looking for staffers to take the box from her.

Under normal circumstances, Michelle said the Obamas had "all this protocol" to deal with gifts from heads of state and visitors to the White House.

The former first lady told Ellen however that the exchange was just as awkward as it looked. I'm thinking, do we take the picture with [it]?

'And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box.

News footage of the Trumps' White House arrival from January 2017 shows President Barack Obama directing traffic for the photo op, instructing the Trumps where to stand. Clearly not expecting a present, Michelle frantically looked around for a place to put the box - both a handsome and painful sight.

He can be heard saying: "We will take care of the protocol". It was the flawless storm-and one that left Michelle Obama flummoxed, faced with the possibility she might have to carry around a bright blue box the whole day.
