On Thursday President Barack Obama  and first lady Michelle Obama welcomed a group of activists and politicos to the White House for its Black History Month reception. 

The president joked about how he could tell it was Black History Month after someone from the crowd yelled, "Hey, Michelle!"

"We know it is Black History Month when you hear somebody say, 'Heyyy, Michelle! Girl, you look so good!' " Obama said.

And of course, Michelle had to let everyone know that she thought the president looked good, too!
