During the inauguration day luncheon at the White House, Michelle Obama gave several very pronounced eyerolls, apparently in response to bon mots from John Boehner.
There's no audio to go with the visual footage, so it's anyone's guess what Boehner is saying, but at one point he seems to make a joke at which President Obama laughs.
But apparently the First Lady and the Speaker agreed on one thing over lunch: they had no truck with a long speech from the POTUS: "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."
After watching the video, I think MO needs to start eating a breakfast before events like this. Seems she was shoveling non-stop.....like she had only eaten one of her "school lunches" in the last 24 hours.
@Mogal but they are the first to point the finger, blaming the liberals for the divisiveness in our country right now. They are the first to say liberals are dividing the country by race. And they wonder why they lost the election and continue to lose support everyday.
She probably smelled the thick stench of whiskey on him that he often has, and he was as usual, DRUNK! Figures how the rightwingers constantly defend this drunk even though he and his fellow republicans destroyed our national and world economy for the benefit of their elitist donors, and eventhough they ruined our world reputation with badly run wars, torture, and ...well, more dysfunctional behavior from "W", who is what is called a "dry drunk".
@zeke Childish? Or the truth! We all know Boehner is the first in Congress to get to the bar every night. That's just a fact. We all know "W" quit drinking due to a "problem" and is known for cocaine when he was younger. We also know the GOP presided over the worst economic crash since the Great Depression" (which incidentally, for those who know their history, was ALSO caused by the republicans de-regulating and cutting taxes for the rich), and we all have seen Boehner crying almost monthly, sometimes weekly, for barely any reason. C'mon, get serious!
You know what really is childish? You posting a name-calling post without even an attempt at even one counter-argument! Of course, you don't have one and you know I'm right. You just couldn't admit it to yourself so you childishly denigrated my post without a shred of evidence. Better get out of denial or the GOP will sell you and our economy yet again for the benefit of their rich donors.
@Jimiracle So he's the first one at the bar every night and thats a 'fact'? Prove it. Bush did coke? So what? Obama admits to it in his books, why is it suddenly an issue? Also, how may pictures of there of ol Barry boy floating around with a giant joint in his mouth?
@joshinAZ LOL! It's well-known! Boehner even has a favorite haunt he goes to nearly every night. And Bush was known not for just use of cocaine but excessive use, hardly the same as experimentation of drugs and turning away from drugs like Obama did.
And so what?! We had a dry drunk as president for 8 years who was in denial, drinking near-beer (was choking on a pretzel a relapse event?) and embarrassing himself and us the world over, without getting treatment for his condition. His VP got drunk and shot his friend in the face while duck-hunting! Yeah, no big deal? LOL!
I really do hope 'Bo' their dog was not on the menu...no one's seen him in awhile... maybe that was the question Boehner was asking, where has Bo been? Maybe she had a pang of guilt and just "rolled her eyes" to play it down. I hope not. I do dog rescues..someone needs to alert PETA! lol
What a ridiculous poll, Politix. Without knowing what was said and to whom, there is no way of knowing if her eye roll was over something Mr. Boehner said, or over something her husband said. What wife doesn't roll her eyes when her husband pontificates?
