Tuesday, President Obama posed for a selfie photo with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British Prime Minster David Cameron and first lady Michelle Obama sat nearby with a very stern look on her face; after the Obama selfie photos began to circulate the Internet, many people thought Michelle Obama’s look was disapproval about the photo being taken. The news of the Obama selfie photos created a buzz, according to the NY Daily News.
See the video to the left for the whole story.
The Obama selfie photos were taken during Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in South Africa on Tuesday. In all of the photos, President Obama is laughing and smiling as he chats with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt. Michelle Obama is sitting on the other side of President Obama and she is looking off in a different direction and she isn't smiling at all while the photos are being taken.
Roberto Schmidt took the photos of the Obama selfie picture and he insisted that Michelle Obama wasn’t upset about the photos being taken, and that she had been laughing just a few minutes before with some other guests. The Obama selfie photos have also seemed to have stolen some of the limelight from the Mandela service as well, Schmidt wrote in his blog Tuesday.
Schmidt insists that Michelle Obama’s disapproving look was just a second in time, but in all of the photos she has the same stern look on her face, while the people around her seem to be having a great time.
