Congressman Shock's "conversation" with the First Lady


Schock will be a guest on NPR's "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!," airing August 15th and 16th, where he revealed that he complimented First Lady Michelle Obama on her "buff" arms, and she returned the praise.

Read the excerpt below:

PETER SAGAL, HOST, WAIT, WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!: Because of that photograph, you were asked once, we found this - whether you felt in your professional congressional opinion - whether you or President Obama had the better bod. And you said you didn't know. Have you had a chance to check it out?

REP. AARON SCHOCK: [LAUGHTER]

SAGAL: Because we know what guys are like - I'm a guy. You're out there, you're hanging out at some congressional thing. We're checking each other out. We're seeing who's brining it. So, what do you think?

REP. SCHOCK: Well, I'm sorry to disappoint - the opportunity has not presented itself. However, I will say that at the White House picnic that I was invited to, Michelle was there, First Lady Michelle Obama, with a sleeveless shirt on, and she was looking pretty buff.

SAGAL: Really?

REP. SCHOCK: Yeah. I actually complimented her on her arms. She's got it together.

SAGAL: You did? You actually went up to Michelle Obama and you said, 'Hey, nice guns?' What did you do?

REP. SCHOCK: I did.

SAGAL: Come one. No, stop. What did you say to the First Lady of the United States? I want to hear it.

REP. SCHOCK: Ah... [LAUGHTER]. We were along the rope line at the White House, I had some guests there that I brought with that wanted their picture taken with her. And so I said hello to her, and we, you know, I chitchatted and I said, 'You're looking good.' And she just kind of laughed at me. And I said, 'Seriously,' I said, 'Those are some arms.' And she said, well, she made a nice compliment about myself, and then she moved on, so.

SAGAL: No, stop! No, sir. No, sir. You're not going to get away with it. What did she say to you? 'She made a nice compliment about myself.' What did she say?

REP. SCHOCK: Something to the effect of, 'You're not too bad yourself.'

SAGAL: Ah ha! Ah ha. And then you guys went into a pose-off, right, like at the end of a body-building competition?

AMY DICKINSON, PANELIST, WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!: You know, I bet that never happened with Mamie Eisenhower. You know? It just never did.

SAGAL: I got to say, elected to Congress at age 27, big deal. Gotten some props from Michelle, that's something sir. Congratulations.

REP. SCHOCK: You know, I think Joe Biden overheard and got a little jealous, too.

SAGAL: I'm sure. Because I've noticed Joe's been on the elliptical ever since he met Michelle.

Hmmph, kinda fresh don't ya think? Good represntn Congressman Shock, you go boy! (Oh, was that a little fresh?)
