It was a picture frame!
Possibly even the picture frame pictured above!
(I’m not sure exactly which Tiffany frame Melania brought, but I like this one with a bow, so I’m going with it.)
So, there you have it, folks!
That’s one Inauguration Day mystery you no longer have to worry about.
Some people apparently guessed it was a picture frame all along!
But isn’t it nice to have the vindication?
You can watch Michelle Obama's Ellen appearance here:
She breaks down the entire interaction.
She also talked about what her life has been like post-White House.
Although I’m happy to have an end to this particular mystery, I can’t help but have one more question:
What picture did the Obamas put in the frame?
