David Cameron and Barack Obama were caught posing for a mobile phone selfie at Nelson Mandelas memorial service.
The two men were sat either side of Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and smiled as she took the snapshot of the three leaders at the FNB Stadium in Soweto.

That’s some ‘no-class’ conduct... no matter how you look at it.
Mandela is simply getting the respect or lack thereof that he deserves.
oh cmon they were in mourning. really
truly devastated they were
I don’t know who invented the word “selfie,” but it sure is tailor made for Obama.
If an attractive blonde from Denmark wants a photo with you, you give it to her.
I’ve got to side with Obama on this one. Have you seen footage from the event? People were dancing and swaying in their seats. It didn’t look like a solemn occasion to me.
Well Michelle looked cheesed off.

A comment on another thread: “Blondes are kryptonite to black men.”
Also, “Did you get the number of that blond that hit you?”
I dunno. Michelle O was pretty dang solemn.
Sounds more like pagan worship than the memorial for a country’s one-time leader.

The “respect” that Mandela has from these characters is only for public consumption. In reality, they don’t have any respect for him. It’s only a “show performance” for them.
NOW ... I’m not saying that Mandela deserves any respect for being the terrorist that he was - but that these people in politics are only pandering to the people who seem to adore Mandela.
Yes, give me Helle any day of the week!
Obama’s interested in attractive blondes from anywhere?
Blondes are kryptonite to black men. Why is that? My oldest blonde daughter has been hit on so often by random black men. They are so much more forward than any white men.
I have no problem with someone whooping it up at the communist’s funeral.
Funny how it seems at odds with the preached solemnity of this occasion out of all these politicians, though. Isn’t it?
