First lady Michelle Obama will give one of her final interviews in office this week, sitting down with television megastar Oprah Winfrey for a discussion on her life in the White House.

According to Variety, Obama will "speak to the first lady in the first family's private residence about life at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and her eight years as first lady of the United States, the legacy she'll leave behind and her plans for the future."

In preview clips from the interview, Obama addressed the biggest elephant in the room: the man who will succeed Barack Obama, GOP President-elect Donald Trump.

"I think that we feel the difference now," the first lady says. "See, now we're feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary. It's a necessary concept."
