Okay so we are putting together some of the most memorable moments of President Obama’s 2013 Inaugural ceremony and this one tops the list. And the old adage of black women’s ‘attitude,’ most definitely rings true — at least as it pertains to the clip below.
First Lady, Michelle Obama was caught on camera rolling her eyes while listening to a comment from the Ohio congressman John Boehner.
Tumblr blogger “Mattyrab” was the first to capture the eye rolling in action, notably titling it a “historical moment in shade throwing.”

The video has already been shared thousands of times across social media sites with viewers speculating on what sparked the First Lady’s facial expression.
At one point during the Inauguration Day luncheon, Obama leaned behind his wife to talk with Speaker of the House (R-Ohio), who was seated to the first lady’s left. (pic to the right) When Boehner replied, he tapped Michelle Obama as if to see if she agreed with his response. After a brief back-and-forth between the president and the speaker, the look the first lady gave suggested that she didn’t.
While there may have been some disagreement in that exchange, the president later gave short remarks, claiming that his wife and Boehner had agreed that he should keep it quick.
“Michelle and the speaker of the House came to a meeting of the minds that I may be delaying the proceedings too much,” Obama said. “And so I’m just going to be extraordinarily brief and say thank you.”
