The Washington Post’s Pamela Kirkland put together a video report for the occasion, which includes appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama on “The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon” and “Live! with Kelly and Michael.” To host Kelly Ripa, Michelle Obama said, ”I think our agents don’t want us driving with teenagers…Especially the President’s detail, I don’t think they want him in the state when she’s learning how to drive.”

It also includes footage from an ABC News special in which President Barack Obama said, “We’re going to have to figure out the logistics of that, but I promised her, she will in fact, be able to learn how to drive.”
