'We're free!” Those were the words spoken by Michelle Obama as she left the White House for the last time. Little did she realize that those two little words were perhaps the sweetest sounds ever uttered by a Former First Lady, to those of us who endured her presence within the White House for 8-long years.

No doubt Michelle’s quip was meant to suggest that she was no longer tasked with the awesome duties and responsibilities of being First Lady, however, those two beautiful words also meant that the Obama Presidency had finally come to an end and that America would finally have a chief executive who actually cared about the American people.

According to Richard Branson's new autobiography, the former First Lady made the “we're free” comment in January just before those crucial days of President-elect Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, and President Obama’s completion of his term in office.

Moreover, once the reins of power was transferred to the new administration, the Obama’s quickly took advantage of their new status and billionaire Richard Branson's generosity and traveled to the British Virgin Islands as his guest, for an all-expense paid ten-day holiday on the Caribbean island.

It was reported that when the former president along with the former first lady greeted Branson on the Caribbean island, Michelle quipped again 'We're free,' and told his staff to call her and her husband by their first names rather than their formal titles.

After leaving the White House, Michelle Obama began speaking out about living in the “fishbowl” during a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, last month.

She likened it to “being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind.” She explained it took awhile to get used to her new way of life, exclaiming; “You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don't know where your forks are.”
