The day after Disney’s Muppets premiered their new movie — Muppets Most Wanted — in LA, they were in DC for another special screening…with the First Lady!
First Lady Michelle Obama and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey were joined by Kermit the Frog to deliver remarks during a VIP showing at the White House for a group of military children and their families arranged by the Joining Forces Initiative.
Mrs. Obama called the youth “heroes” for their strength and bravery in living the military life: balancing schoolwork, family life and growing up with address changes and other upsets.
Kermit added a salute and some support in his own humorous way: “I may not be a Marine, but I am marine life.”
