Michelle Obama said that one of her primary goals for her eight years as the first lady was to avoid falling over and becoming a meme, according to a new story published by The Mail Online.
Speaking in London on December 3, Mrs. Obama said that the possibility of falling over at a public appearance was always on her mind.
"Of course your head is spinning because first of all, I'm trying not to fall, which is a major thing that I think about in public," she noted.
"If you're thinking about my thoughts when I come out on stage it's 'don't fall,'" she quipped.
She then revealed that the ever-present popularity of social media led her to always focus on one thing throughout her term as first lady of the United States of America.
"One of my primary goals for the eight years was to never become a meme," Mrs. Obama quipped during her tour to promote her new book Becoming.
The Daily Mail Online also explained that when meeting heads of state or other notable world figures, the former first lady also worried about doing something that would embarrass the country.
Obama was fearful of falling over when she first met Queen Elizabeth.
