Conan O'Brien may be "one of the funniest men on the planet," according to FLOTUS Michelle Obama, but can he train like a member of the United States military? Well, not exactly, and if he wants to start he'll have to get down the very basic, very impossible (to many of us) 50 pushup test.
O'Brien aired his highly publicized Mission Conan episode last night. The episode was footage from his and Obama's trip over in Qatar to visit troops at the Al Udeid Air Base.
While giving some background on the mission, which was largely to promote the White House and Michelle Obama's Joining Forces initiative – one that prides itself on working with military families and veterans in order to better help shine a light on those who serve, particularly in the job, education and health care sectors – Obama discussed the importance of remembering those who serve our country.

"As you can see, once you connect you don't want to let go," Obama explained to O'Brien. "It just fills you up and I think every American would have that experience."
Upon talking further about the military, specifically that Obama is often around servicemen and women—people who are physically fit—O'Brien asked the FLOTUS how he stacks up against them. She then paused, and admitted, "Great." Though something seemed off.
Which is when O'Brien tried to do 50 pushups and, well, it just wasn't happening.
