President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle appeared on Tuesday's episode of The View for their first joint appearance. They sat down with hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd, and Elizabeth Hasselbeck to talk about politics, their relationship, and their two daughters.

The charming couple doted on each other with FOTUS noting that her husband is "very loving, very giving … very funny," but that she was funnier. She also added that, "I’m probably one of the few people who can really make him mad—any number of ways." The President quickly replied, "By being thoroughly unreasonable."

The First Couple's 20th anniversary falls on Wednesday, Oct. 3, but because it's the night of the first presidential debate, they will celebrate it that following Saturday instead.

President Obama also noted that his wife "would be terrific" in public office, "but temperamentally I don’t think" she'd be well suited for the position. She agreed by adding, "I'm not that patient."

What she is looking forward to though is taking a nice long break after her husband's presidential term is over and possibly recreating their honeymoon vacation by driving along the California coast. The President has also given some thought to life after the Oval Office and mentioned that he would like to mentor kids.

The two were so charming throughout the show that even Hasselbeck, a Republican, was forced to admit that, "I wholeheartedly do really like you both."
