    Michelle Obama Tried to Escape the White House to Celebrate the Legalization of Gay Marriage

    So you talk about, in the book, also the night that gay marriage passed. And this is a great story. Yeah. One of the interesting things– I bring it up to talk about just how vastly different one day could be in the White House during our administration.
