The obligatory “Obama enjoying himself at Mandela’s funeral, Michelle not so much” post

posted at 1:51 pm on December 10, 2013 by Allahpundit

I appealed to Providence to deliver some real news today so that I wouldn’t be reduced to blogging something you’ve already seen on 20 different sites. But alas, no news was to be found.

And so the atheists win again, my friends.

Three possibilities. One: FLOTUS looks sour because, let’s face it, she usually looks sour. Two: FLOTUS looks sour because, unlike some people, she knows that state funerals aren’t the time for goofing off with your geopolitical BFFs.

Three: Ahem.

I think what’s going on there between the second and third photos is simply Obama having left his seat to deliver his eulogy and then returned to find Michelle having slid over into his spot to make conversation with the PM. But admittedly, there are … alternative explanations:

If nothing else good comes out of this, at least the “Selfies at Funerals” guy came out of retirement for one last post. Exit question: Dude?

Schadenfreude

If Bill then think early to mid 20′s, curvy, with a thing for berets.
If Hillary, same.

Note quite. If Hillary, think mid- to late-30′s, Middle Eastern, big nose, probably doesn’t “trim the hedge”.

Absolute proof Allah is a guy and rather confused as to women.

Given the sour expression on Mo’s face there is minimal likelihood your premise is valid. While I could concede the possibility that MO thought BO was acting like an a$$ by taking selfies at a memorial the involvement of the blond woman moved it out of “boys will be boys.”

Are you immune to body language? The crossed arms, the sour faces, the turned bodies? The only possible conversation MO might have had with the PM was to suggest that if she wanted to keep all those pretty teeth she’d better back off.

…any excuse for a tax-payer funded PARTY, I guess.

It’s a weird time when the most decent in the crowd is Michelle.

That needs to be posted on HuffPo every day until Election Day 2014.

Cripes – not even my teenage daughter would exhibit such boorish behavior.

Hill60 on December 10, 2013 at 6:54 PM

Hah. As if you know even half of what your teenage daughter does.

I think Barack is sleeping on the couch tonight.

gerrym51 on December 10, 2013 at 10:07 PM

But how can you tell Moochelle from the couch?

Nutstuyu on December 11, 2013 at 3:33 PM

Classless pigs. Him and her, both. Can’t wait for the joyous day they unclutter The People’s House with their foul presence.

What’s funny is the socialist PM of Denmark is married to former UK socialist Labour leader Neil Kinnock’s son. And Neil Kinnock is the guy who Joe Biden plagiarized, er, “got the inspiration” for a speech he delivered way back when.

The couch is better-dressed.

What a moronic, infantile turd we have as President. So glad he can jet around the world embarrassing us by acting like a hyperventilating teenaged girl.

Thanks for nuttin’, eejit 52%.

GrassMudHorsey on December 11, 2013 at 8:53 PM

Did it get it’s bowcaster past security?

Murphy9 on December 11, 2013 at 10:21 PM

i am not surprised. BO does not have the brains to avoid such faux paus (keeping paws to oneself), and in front of the President no less.
