It’s no secret that former First Lady Michelle Obama is pretty well-loved, so much so that her beloved Smithsonian National Portrait has to be moved because of huge demand.

According to CNNAmy Sherald’s painting of Mrs. Obama was recently relocated to a different part of the museum.

“We’re always changing things up here. Due to the high volume of visitors, we’ve relocated Michelle Obama’s portrait to the 3rd floor in our 20th-Century Americans galleries for a more spacious viewing experience,” the National Portrait Gallery tweeted earlier this month.

Since her and former President Obama’s portraits were unveiled, the museum has been packed with patrons, with a whopping 176,700 people in February 2018. CNN noted that is the biggest month at the Smithsonian in the past three years.

These numbers don’t surprise given how much Michelle’s stunning portrait means to us, especially young Black girls. Just last month, we reported about a photo of a two-year-old girl staring at the painting that went viral. Michelle herself made sure she got a chance to meet Parker Curry face to face.

      You stupid. Jealousy rearing its ugly head again, and that would be you. Yo just mad cause you know the only place they gonna put a pic of #45’s mail order dummy MT, will be on the wall inside a nasty ass bathroom of a trash dump along with her phone number. Befitting place for a porn star married to a p*ssy grabber.
