Michelle Obama is taking imaginary friends to a whole new level. She has over 2 million of them.
Imaginary friends and imaginary companions are a psychological and social phenomenon where a friendship or other interpersonal relationship takes place in the imagination rather than external physical reality. Imaginary friends are fictional characters created for improvisational role-playing. They often have elaborate personalities and behaviors. Although they may seem very real to their creators, children understand that their imaginary friends are not real. The first studies focusing on imaginary friends are believed to have been conducted during the 1890s. (source)
