Hey, isn’t that … “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert waiting in line like everyone else to admire former first lady Michelle Obama’s official portrait at the National Portrait Gallery on Saturday?
Since going on display late last month, portraits of both Michelle Obama and her husband, former president Barack Obama, have drawn record crowds to the museum. Fans of the former first couple have waited for hours to snap a selfie in front of the two portraits. This weekend, Colbert was one of them.
There was a small commotion near Michelle Obama’s portrait on Saturday afternoon when museum-goers spotted the comedian with a woman who appeared to be his wife, Evelyn McGee-Colbert (we last saw them in town in 2014 at the state dinner in honor of France). “Was that Stephen Colbert?” our source overheard several people ask as the late-night host, going Every Man in a baseball cap, moved through the crowd. Yes, yes, it was.
One fan even approached the comedian for a selfie, but, we’re told, Colbert politely declined.
