First Lady Michelle Obama handled herself well in the face of the worst attack yet by Birthers, this time coming face to face with Sesame Street’s Big Bird.

Big Bird, remember, was hatched.

Thanks to Conan O’Brien for sharing this remarkable footage with us.

Here’s a transcription:

Conan O’Brien: First lady Michelle Obama just made an appearance on "Sesame Street." It was all going very well. But then Big Bird showed up and things got a little uncomfortable.

Big Bird: Well, look who’s here to push her husband’s socialist health care agenda.

Michele Obama: Well, Big Bird …

Big Bird: Or maybe you’re here to finally show us your husband’s United States birth certificate.

Michele Obama: No, Big Bird, I’m not.

Big Bird: That’s ’cause you can’t.

Enjoy the video.
