First Lady Michelle Obama attended the opening of the new Whitney Museum on Thursday and announced she was “in love” with it. Unfortunately, her appearance also attracted the area’s thirsty randos, such as New York City mayor Bill de Blasio.

You know something important is happening when first lady Michelle Obama is there,” he said at the opening, adding that he was “star-struck” by her presence, according to the New York Post. He then fake-whispered, “Pssst, Michelle, notice me! NOTICE ME!!!”
