Michelle Obama, Jill Biden to visit ‘The View’

First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will appear on Monday’s “The View” to talk about a campaign to provide more national support for military families. It will be Jill Biden’s first visit to “The View.”

It’s not the first time the first lady has gone on daytime TV to discuss the subject.

Days after President Obama announced new government-wide initiatives to support military families - including programs aimed at preventing homelessness among veterans and suicide - in his State of the Union Address, Michelle Obama took the message to the Reigning Queen of Daytime TV, Oprah Winfrey, who dedicated an entire day of her syndicated talk show to the subject.

“We’re going to ask the country to get ourselves together and be a part of reconnecting these families to the broader community,” Michelle Obama told Oprah and her millions of followers, including a studio audience that leapt to its feet (some began hugging one another) when the first lady came on stage.

Update: OWN announced Friday that Michelle Obama and Jill Biden will also stop by “The Gayle King Show” on Tuesday.
