Awkward Moment As BBC Describe Black Woman As “Not Michelle Obama”

Narrating live coverage can obviously be a bit repetitive and boring but really - do we need to be told who people aren't, especially when it's one of the most famous people on the planet?

Today is a big day for America - Barack Obama left the Oval Office and a new president has just been sworn in. A lot of things are going to change - we're entering a new era where there's a lot of uncertainty. But, at least we know for sure, that woman in the pink and purple dress and tan coat isn't Michelle Obama.
