Every since the Benghazi incident, many have been asking, "Where was the president on the night of the attack?" While that question has still gone unanswered, Michelle Obama has offered a little more insight into what the president does enjoy doing in his private time: sing in the bathroom.

During an interview with BET on Tuesday night, Michelle was asked about the president's impromptu singing of Al Green a while back. According to her, that's just the tip of the iceberg.

"I always say my husband has got swag. He’s got a little swag," she said to applause. "But he sings all the time. Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing. He is always willing to sing. He’s like, 'you want me to sing now, want me to sing something for you?' But he has got a good voice."

The hosts agreed he's "definitely" got swag.

Here's the transcript of the exchange via the Washington Free Beacon:

MRS. OBAMA: Question number two: On a scale of 1 to 10, how awesome was it when the President started singing “Let’s Stay Together” — Al Green? That was pretty awesome. I mean, he’s got a pretty good voice.

KESHIA CHANTE: He does.

MRS. OBAMA: I always say my husband has got swag. He’s got a little swag. (Applause.)

BOW WOW: He definitely does.

MRS. OBAMA: It was really sweet. But he sings all the time. Oh, yes, he’s in the bathroom all the time just singing. He is always willing to sing. He’s like, you want me to sing now, want me to sing something for you? But he has got a good voice. That was very sweet.

And in case you've forgotten, here's Obama singing the Al Green hit "Let's Stay Together":
