While on the Today show announcing the launch of her new Obama Foundation initiative Global Girls Alliance, Mrs. Obama shared new details about her life after the White House with former President Barack Obama.

Speaking on the "Today Show" on Thursday, Obama said she didn't realize the moment had been caught on camera, but described her relationship with the former president from the other side of the political aisle.

Appearing Thursday on the TODAY show to announce a new initiative aimed to bolster girls, she was asked about her relationship to Bush after video went viral of him giving her a cough drop during the September 1 funeral of the late Arizona Republican Sen. "So, he is my partner in crime at every major thing where all the formers gather".

The first ladies have met in the past, most memorably before President Trump's inauguration, when Mrs. Trump presented Mrs. Obama with a gift that was later revealed to be a "lovely frame." "He's a wonderful man, he's a amusing man".

She said that at the funeral, she noticed Bush receiving a cough drop from his wife, so she asked him to get her one too. "He's a amusing man".

The former first lady's memoir, "Becoming", comes out November 13.

The relationship between the two has been highlighted as a flawless example of putting country before politics because she's a Democrat and he is a Republican. The alliance will feature social fundraising to help them.

She says, "When you educate a girl, you educate a family, a community, a country". She says she's "so proud" of Sasha and Malia Obama.
