Michelle Miller gushed over Michelle Obama and her seven and a half years as first lady on the 25 July 2016 edition of CBS Evening News. Miller trumpeted Mrs. Obama as "her husband's biggest advocate; a mother fiercely protective of her daughter's privacy; champion for healthy eating and staying fit — using her bare arms to redefine fashion; and her voice to comfort the country." Miler later spotlighted how the first lady's "climb has not always been up a crystal stair," but also played up how "now, with an approval rating of 68 percent — higher than her husband's — you'll see more of her personality."
