Posh prison with perks for First Lady Michelle Obama?

Apparently so for the First Lady, whose comment came during her discussion with former First Lady Laura Bush at the African First Ladies Summit in Tanzania during an interview moderated by journalist Cokie Roberts. 

The Wall Street Journal reports that First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday described living in the White House as like being in a “really nice prison.”

Roberts noted that Martha Washington even agreed and felt like a state prisoner.

Obama said, “There are some prison elements to it,” she joked. “But it’s a really nice prison.”

Former first lady Laura Bush reminded the crowd that First Ladies had a chef.

“You can’t complain,” Michelle Obama admitted. “But there is definitely elements that are confining.”
