London, Mar 21 (ANI): Michelle Obama has revealed that she goes on "covert" shopping trips in an attempt to escape the confines of the White House and mingle with the American people. The First Lady said she was able to go for "little jaunts out" despite facing protests from her Secret Service bodyguards. During a trip to a supermarket last year a small woman approached her in the detergent aisle and reportedly asked the 48-year-old, who is nearly six feet tall, to reach up and grab a product from a high shelf. The shopper, apparently oblivious that she was speaking to the President's wife, said merely: "Well, you didn't have to make it look so easy." "That was my interaction," the Telegraph quoted her as telling on the 'Late Show With David Letterman'. "I felt so good, she had no idea who I was," she said.he shopping trip - in which Michelle had disguised herself with sunglasses and a baseball cap - came under fire from Republicans who branded it a publicity stunt.
