Michelle Obama sat down with Ellen DeGeneres, in her first TV interview since leaving the White House to talk about several different topics. DeGeneres asked about the inauguration gift exchange and what was in the Tiffany & Co. box.

Michelle said, “It was a lovely frame.” According to People, Michelle also talked about why she was so caught off guard.

They replayed the video of Donald Trump and Melania Trump getting out the car with the gift. DeGeneres was confused of why he didn’t help his wife up the stairs and then they laughed about Michelle being confused of what to do with the gift. Michelle said, “Well, there’s all this protocol. I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you’re going to do this, they’re going to stand here. Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like okay.”

Michelle was supposed to be taking a picture, but didn’t know where to place the fancy present. She said, “What am I supposed to do with this gift? And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. And I’m thinking do we take the picture with. And then my husband saved the day – see he grabbed the box and took it back inside. But everybody cleared out. No staff, no one. I was like what do you do with the box?” You can catch the full interview, February 1st.
