The After Inaugural Potpourri: Videos Of The Epic Michelle Obama/Boehner Eye-Roll


By Jueseppi B.

This is high comedy….and I’ve provided the “you tube” page for you to choose & pick your favorite videos of this epic eye roll…..You Tube.

 

But here are my favorites…..

 

Michelle Obama Rolls Eyes At John Boehner, Sets Internet Aflame

Michelle Obama Eye Roll: First Lady Not Amused By President’s Banter With John Boehner.

 

 

 

 

 

That deserves a second look…..

 

Published on Jan 21, 2013

First Lady Michelle Obama kept up with her husband stride for stride on Monday, smiling brightly as they proceeded through a second inauguration ceremony chock full of pageantry. But that doesn’t mean that she was entertained by all of the day’s events.

At one point during the Inauguration Day luncheon, President Barack Obama leaned behind his wife to talk with Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio), who was seated to the first lady’s left. When Boehner replied, he tapped Michelle Obama as if to see if she agreed with his response. After a brief back-and-forth between the president and the speaker, the look the first lady gave suggested that she didn’t.

 

 

 

 

The president later stood up to speak at the luncheon and joked about the relationship between his wife and Boehner.

 

“Michelle and the Speaker of the House came to a meeting of the minds that I may be delaying the proceedings too much,” Obama said. “And so I’m just going to be extraordinarily brief and say thank you.”

 

The infamous “eye-roll” since has become internet meme overnight, with Mattyrab’s video shared over 7,000 times on Tumblr and the YouTube video titled, “Watch Michelle Obama Throw World Historical Shade at John Boehner,” viewed over 2 million times as of yesterday.
