Skip to comments.'Selfie' diplomacy: Michelle Obama looks unamused by Barack's joking with Danish prime minister

First lady appears to fail to see the funny side as her husband takes a 'selfie' with Helle Thorning-Schmidt and David Cameron
For a memorial service it was a remarkably jovial scene: Barack Obama, David Cameron and Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the Danish prime minister, huddled together for a smart phone photograph.
But one person looked distinctly less amused by the world leaders' "selfie" - Michelle Obama.
The First Lady stared straight ahead, hands clasped in her lap, while her husband laughed with the Europeans at Nelson Mandela's memorial in Johannesburg.
Another photograph shows shows her looking on, unsmiling, as Mr Obama shared a joke with Ms Thorning-Schmidt and patted her on the shoulder.

Funerals are fun at this level.
She is thinking “Why he be hittin on dat blonde woman?”
Or maybe a mouth full of ....hot pepper.
Highly inappropriate funeral/memorial service behavior.
“Highly inappropriate funeral/memorial service behavior.”
Yeah, by all of ‘em.
All three of these so-called leaders are embarrassing themselves, acting like teenagers at a party. Just another example of children being in charge when liberals are elected. Michelle is only mad cuz she wasn’t included.
Funny that didn’t include the picture taken a bit later showing that the Obama switched seats putting Michelle between BO and the Danish PM.
She looks like she’s ready to bitch-slap him.
Black guys and blondes. At least she’s not a 200 pound hag like they usually go for. Meanwhile, his old lady is pissed. I would bet that a very loud and very one-sided conversation followed.
The one of Mooch staring daggers at Carla Bruni is the best one though.
To be fair it was not your typical funeral service.
Lots of dancing, smiling and singing.
Which imho is appropriate or might be for Christians.
If we truly believe.
A baptist going away party.
You can be the POTUS, but when you’re sitting next to a hot blonde with nice legs - all men are the same.
In the third frame Moochelle puts an end to the flirting by plopping herself between them.
Reminds me of when slick willie got caught laughing while walking up to Ron Browns funeral, then when he saw the cameras started to cry..................what a pizza.
Depends on the demeanor of the immediate family IMHO. If they’re still in deep mourning it’s inappropriate to have a circus atomosphere. These aren’t a bunch of teenagers, they’re world leaders.
Looking at the demeanor of the other guests in the bigger view pictures it would seem to be dramatically out of place.
Even Michelle knows it’s out of place. The look on her face screams ‘you’re gonna get it when we get in private!’.
Doesn’t he allow only his official photographers to capture his image? I guess this is what they have decided to amuse us with today. He is quite the narcissist as always. Will the millenials be impressed? . . .
I hope the first linebacker throws his sorry bu++ out of air farce one when they are at 37,000 feet.
