Michelle Obama and Ellen DeGeneres doing a book signing at Costco on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Nov. 15, 2018.

In support of her new memoir Becoming, Michelle Obama visited a Costco store with Ellen DeGeneres for an impromptu book signing.

As always, DeGeneres had a few tricks up her sleeve, starting up her antics by placing her own signature in Obama's book. She then upped the ante by ripping out pages of the book, placing the shreds of paper in tiny cups and offering it as a "sample" for potential shoppers. 

DeGeneres concluded the skit by suggestively offering the former First Lady multiple boxes of hemorrhoid cream and singing a poorly-played keyboard song about her memoir.
