President Obama Takes ‘Selfie’ During Mandela Memorial, Michelle Not Pleased

Rucuss staffDecember 10, 2013

President Barack Obama and Michelle traveled to South Africa to to say farewell to Nelson Mandela.

Obama gave a speech during the four-hour memorial service at Johannesburg FNB stadium for Mandiba who passed on Dec. 5 at age 95. The President, who received the most cheers from other speakers, called Mandela a “giant of history.”

“We will never see the likes of Nelson Mandela again,” Obama said in a speech to the crowd. “To the people of South Africa — people of every race and every walk of life — the world thanks you for sharing Nelson Mandela with us.”

While the atmosphere was celebratory, with people dancing and singing songs from the anti-apartheid struggle, it appeared Michelle wasn’t feeling it at some point during the memorial. Michelle gave Obama the side-eye after he snapped a ‘selfie’ with Denmark prime minister David Cameron and his wife.


It appeared that Michelle wasn’t having the friendly banter between Denmark’s prime minister’s wife and Obama, because later they changed seats.

To be fair, the camera probably caught Michelle off guard and it’s not what it seems. But it’s still funny to think otherwise.
