President Obama went to the beach with Sasha and Malia today, while the first lady tracked Santa’s progress across the Heavens. From the pool report.
While POTUS and daughters enjoyed a day at the beach, First Lady Michelle Obama stayed behind to answer calls about Santa’s whereabouts.
The first lady took part in the “NORAD Tracks Santa” program, answering calls from children trying to find out the location of the Jolly Old Elf on Christmas Eve.
Starting around 5 p.m. EST (noon Hawaii time), NORAD coordinated incoming phone calls and directed them to Mrs. Obama, who introduced herself to the callers. When asked for Santa’s location, she consulted the NORAD Santa Route Schedule and gave that information to the child callers, the White House said.
The first lady answered calls for about 40 minutes.
