    Unbelievable how ignorant most of the youtube comments are about Michelle Obama….there are some truly sick individuals out there.

  2. Paul R says

    Good for her. I’m sure that she was thinking, Ugh, do I really have to sit next to him? Twice in one day?

    Cryface was way too visible at the inauguration.

  3. Jonathan says

    Considering the President’s demeanor throughout, this looks more like a long suffering wife thinking “Men!” exasperatedly to herself during a silly moment between her husband and a male colleague.

  4. Randal Oulton says

    “A round of applause to our chef and our caterer…”

    Cringe-worthy. Very American.

  5. Sam says

    Don’t post this. It’s not news, and it’s obviously posted in order to provoke racist, hateful, ignorant commentary (look at the title and subsequent comments section). C’mon, Towleroad.

  6. Paul R says

    @Sam: usually I’d agree with you, but can you identify a single racist or hateful comment on this thread?

  7. BETTY says

    Take it down a notch Sam. I think the First Lady was just echoeing what a lot of people think about the speaker. Good for her! As for ignorant comments: she could make it rain money from the skies and certain people would still complain. Doesn’t matter what the Obama’s do they will always have nasty things to say.

  8. BETTY says

    Is he really “eyerolling” him? From that angle it looks like she is just looking off to the side and wants nothing to do with him and the President’s gabbing. I’ve seen much better eye rolls.

  9. Tim says

    I’m not sure if the First Lady is respoding to the President or to Boehner, but I LOVE it.

    And, did anyone notice woman sitting next to Boehner (wife?) Looks like she’s stealing the silverware! Better view on Gawker.com

  10. Billy says

    Hey Guys, I think the eye-roll was directed at the conversation going on behind her between the President and the Speaker. Maybe they were talking about sports or something else women wish men wouldn’t discuss all the time. It wasn’t specially directed at the Speaker. I’m pretty sure she has way more class than that.

  11. says

    Despite all odds, our President prevailed in gaining re-election. He still has an uphill battle fighting a Red Congress which has blocked his every move in an attempt to squash his goals of bringing the Middle Class equal pay, women’s rights, gay rights and affordable healthcare. The Bush Administration drove our economy into a swift nose dive and Obama is still the patsy. Watch conservative hands paint him in Blackface with a visual commentary of how Barack has been bamboozled at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html

  12. Dastius Krazitauc says

    I think she is just saying “no” and shaking her head to whatever it was Boehner said or asked.

  13. Gregor says

    It’s a very, VERY long day for her (and her family). She’s probably just enjoying a few moments where she doesn’t have to be “on” with a microphone shoved in her face. I agree with LITTLEKIWI, “I love my FLOTUS.”

  14. Paul R says

    She has a 24-day to look forward to enduring. She has a glass of champagne and wine in front of her. She hates Boehner. Give her a break. Elbows on the table? As though it would be more polite for her to sit back and block contact between the two men?

  15. JohnAGJ says

    Keep it classy, FLOTUS. /s

    While I wouldn’t mind showing such attitude to just about all of them, when you’re the one in office (even an honorary one) you should at least fake it.

  16. Tom221 says

    Boner seemed to try to engage an answer from her WHILE HER MOUTH WAS FULL. She knew what he was up to: to make her look like a commoner. She could have handled the situation with more grace, but did you see Boner’s face during the entire Inauguration? Constant frowns of disapproval. Talk about lack of grace!

  17. says

    Michelle has that look on her face that says, “Why is this giant crying Oompa-loompa that has been giving my husband sh*t lately trying to talk to me while I’m enjoying a meal?”

  18. topher says

    The only reason FLOTUS had her elbow on the table is because Boehner almost hit her on that arm just seconds before, while she was having a bite no less! She was getting her arm away from that a**hole.

  19. BobN says

    I’ve seen several photos of Mrs. Boehner over the course of the day. She looks like she had really bad gas.

  20. Robert Ellison says

    This is cute, but you guys should’ve posted a video that didn’t have a title that was intent on insulting the FLOTUS like she’s some cow or something.

  21. bambinoitaliano says

    If I have to sit beside that bag of leaky orange, I rather shove food down my throat non stop to avoid talking to him.

  22. jamal49 says

    Interesting commentary but sometimes one has to question Towleroad’s aptitude for tasteless bias. The title of this video is appalling.

  23. Darren says

    I’m sorry if this sounds a little politically incorrect
    But this link is far too gay..not all looks up and down is an eye roll
    Just because it’s a website directed at the gay population doesn’t mean we have to pick apart everyone for what they do and assume we know what they are doing and thinking..dont be such bit*ches
    Lets find some real news
    Michelle Obama has had too deal with alot over the last 2 years the last thing she should have to do is worry about how her food is chewed and what her reaction is when she doesn’t respond how WE expect her to when she does.

  24. beef and fur says

    I just saw it again on CNN. I think that boner just made a jesting remark to both of them, who knows what. It’s clear the POTUS and boner shared a laugh about it and FLOTUS who had her mouth full, reacted with an eye roll. I think it was a “laughing with you” moment not a “laughing at you” moment.

  25. beef and fur says

    Just saw the CNN replay of the POTUS speech at the Capitol luncheon and he made a reference to FLOTUS and boner having a meeting of the minds that he was delaying the proceedings too much. Perhaps a joke to long-winded speeches on a cold, blustery day? Maybe this was the remark the three shared and caused the eye roll?

  26. beef and fur says

    Of course boner just popped her on the arm like she was a Hooter’s waitress, so yeah, maybe an eye roll was in order.

  27. Patrick Fasca says

    Sad thing is that’s who Obama has to negotiate with. The man seems impossible! And next election I think he’ll be the Republicans nominee and Joe Biden will run against him. Time will tell.

  28. johnny says

    With that side of orange hog meat sitting next to me, I’d guard my food too! That’s just basic human behavior, she’s simply keeping him away from her plate and the look is saying “Back off, Clementine, this is MY chow.”

  29. maxx says

    Whatever this is, it’s a slam on the First Lady rather than a celebration of snap divahood (she has never ever been known to “throw shade” so why this is turning on up on the day of the inauguration is questionable.) I think people are projecting their feelings onto the M. Obama

  30. Fruit-for-Peace says

    If I was sitting next to the Boner, I would have likely had a seizure and my fork would have accidentally SLAMMED into Boner’s upper thigh. OOPS! Sorry about that! ūüėõ

  31. alexander says

    Michele Obama is all that and a bag of skittles. I love her. !!! ^_^ Boehner should do us all a favor cry us a river build a bridge and get over himself. He has the personality of a damp cardboard box with orange spray paint on it. ^_^

  32. AJ says

    @GEOFF: YouTube comments are the absolute purgatory of the internet. That and CNN comments. DO NOT READ THEM unless you want to laugh.

  33. Caliban says

    Ah, people are just looking for sh*t to criticize her for. Where did this originate, World News Daily? Free Republic?

    That didn’t look like an eye roll to me. In order for it to be an eye-roll you have to, you know, actually ROLL your eyes. She was looking down, then she looked up. She didn’t “look to the heavens” as if praying for deliverance, a fairly essential part of any eye-roll.

  34. ratbastard says

    C’mon..it looks to me perfectly harmless…like he cracked a silly joke, and she was reacting like anyone would, not in a mean-spirited way.
