The East Wing has not announced it, but First Lady Michelle Obama will head to Paris next week, after accompanying President Obama to Normandy to mark the 65th anniversary of the June 6, 1944 landing of Allied troops on French shores.
Mrs. Obama’s press office only disclosed that the First Lady would be in Normandy on Saturday. “She’ll have no public events beyond Normandy,” I was told on Tuesday afternoon.
But it turned out there was a high-level leaker in the White House — President Obama — who dropped the news in an interview with a French television outlet that Mrs. Obama’s visit to France is likely to be more extended.
Another source told me daughters Malia and Sasha will also be in Paris. Lynn Sweet
