It was the eye roll seen around the world.
During the seated lunch on Inauguration Day after President Obama was sworn in, Michelle Obama was seated in between her husband and Speaker of the House John Boehner, when the latter said something that made the first lady roll her eyes.
We may never know what caused her to look so perturbed, but Inside Edition contacted a lip reader to make out what the Speaker was saying. Supposedly, he asked the president if he had had the chance to have a cigarette before the luncheon, from one smoker to another.
Boehner then tapped Michelle’s arm and said to the president, “Somebody [Michelle] won’t let you do it.”
Is this what he actually said? Maybe. But whatever it was, Michelle did not think it was funny. Remember that the next time you try and get a rise out of the first lady.
