Blown out of proportion? Yes. But in a country so dominated by social media and divided by political leanings, even a simple eye-roll can set the Internet ablaze.
Check out the video above to see Michelle Obama roll her eyes at something Speaker John Boehner said yesterday during the inauguration ceremonies.
SUPER IMPORTANT UPDATE YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT:
So what was said? We asked expert lip reader Larry Wenig. Wenig believes John Boehner is asking President Obama whether he had a chance to have a cigarette before the luncheon.
President Obama gave up cigarettes three years ago. Boehner is a known chain smoker.
Our lip reader, Wenig, caught Boehner saying, “Somebody won’t let you do it”, referring to Michelle, which prompted the first lady’s big eye roll.
There is no need to analyze this, but it is funny how much attention this is getting.
