Bill Clinton Photobombs Kelly Clarkson During Inauguration 2013 [Photo]

Bill Clinton Photobomb

Bill Clinton’s inauguration photobomb of Kelly Clarkson is, perhaps, one of the best we’ve seen in a while.

Former President Clinton attended the inauguration ceremony of President Obama on Monday and apparently took the opportunity to photobomb Kelly Clarkson.

Clarkson, a former American Idol winner, was present to sing her rendition of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” reports The New York Post.

While it’s possible the former president may not have intended to place himself in such an awkward photobomb-perfect position, we can’t help but think the photo will be the latest meme to go viral on the internet. After all, there will be plenty of jokes to make about the former president appearing to check out a beautiful woman.

The Clinton photobomb was posted to Twitter by Doug Gordon. Gordon describes himself as a Brooklyn documentary TV producer.

Clarkson also documented her day at the inauguration festivities, though made no mention of the accidental (we think?) photobomb by the 42nd President of the United States. Clarkson wrote on Twitter:

“Wow ….I was incredibly nervous and cold ha! I jus twanna officially thank President Obama for opening for me haha! Just Kidding :)”

The American Idol winner also posed for a photo with Obama and spent time with Beyonce. She continued about the experience, “What an honor to be a part of history! Obama’s presence was powerful and his words unforgettable. It’s a proud day for America!”

Of course, it’s likely that Clarkson will be a part of history for another reason — the Bill Clinton photobomb.

    I'd of done the same thing, it's called looking! She's readying to sing and he has 3 heads in front of him. grow up

  2. Alejandro Antelo

    I wouldn't call that a photobomb. I'd call that a person trying to get a better view of the backside. You are still a winner in my book Bill. I still can not convince a girl to let me do what you did to that one girl :(

    She's a talented singer I'd want to see her too. Even if all I can see is The Back Of Her Head

    That is what she says when she is at a Ron Paul event. How can she be a Ron Paul supporter and be up there today singing and saying what a proud day for America?

    Folks, our country is in crisis and the future of our economy and society hangs in the balance. I will not support any politician, entertainer, sports figure etc that supports Obama and the destruction of our country…..and that includes all these spotlight whores associated with this inauguration. A very sad day for our country indeed.

    8 years of peace prosperity sucked? spoken like a true idiot

  9. John McTeague

    Karen Fandalunless your being ironic–
    idiot. your calss of 94 were all voted out AFTER they fired their own leader (newt) and featured such greats as Livingston (forced to resign, 2 GOP speakers in a row disgraced, no surprise, and of course Mark Sanfird, hiking the ol' Appalachian trail. All failures now except Bill, all caught doing what they said he shouldn't. YOur a great republican- dumb, the most common kind

    Same sh*t, different 'pink'………….I'm sure Clinton is glad Kelley isn't wearing a navy blue dress!

  11. Joyce Cornett

    Karen Fandal you have got to be kidding the repubs fought him all the way, although they were capable of listening and compromising back then. Sure wish I could say the same about todays repub congress

  12. Nelson Cartagena-Hernandez

    He's got two people in front of him, and he's just looking. It's 2013, people…not 1997.

  13. Allen Speight

    My former boss knew President Clinton very well as she went to high school with him. She said he is just simply Bill. Yes, he was caught with his pants down so to speak, but one cannot deny his merits while in office.

  14. Robert Young

    Sorry, Reagan was hands down. the mess he had to clean up following that idiot Carter and what he did was true Americanism. Clinton did create a shitload of jobs, all service sector min. wage…

  15. Tim Persico

    he's thinking "i'd love a shot at staining that dress, coat, scarf, whatever.

  16. Jeff Cole

    Billdo Clinton the pervert that some group of fools just named Father of the Year. I forgot to catch what left group of Loons that claimed him as Father of the Year. He'd still be doing 18 year olds if he could. It obvious the guy has NO Standards. He's just acting like the Horny fart in the 3rd row is all, what a waste of time on our Head Liar Obama.

  17. Royal Chapman

    "I'd of"? Let's temporarily lose the contraction: I would of. How about a verb: I would have; would have, should have, could have. Say it to yourself several times so you can remember it and stop embarrassing yourself (embarrass: two R's and 2 S's). We hear "of," but most of us have done at least a little reading in our lives and realize I should have, I could have, and I would have are correct. Yikes Stripes!

  18. Garry Jones

    But it's a "vast right wing conspiracy" right Hillary? You were wrong and your husband embarrassed the Office of the Presidency.

  19. Sandy Vaughan

    So who is the idiot with too much time on his hands that he came up with the whole photo bomb crap? As Gail said, he was watching the events of the day!

  20. Jeffrey Thomas

    hey gail,…open your blinders…that wasn't "looking"…that was "LOOKING". and really, go for it bill, you ol dog…glad to see your t levels still UP!

  21. Terry Bortle

    I agree, Gail. It's called looking and I can just imagine how tired I will become at the context of which "photobomb" is used. What the heck ever happened to responsible journalism?

  22. David Allery

    We're in such great shape now with Obamaladingdong in charge and excessive spending, high unemployment, massive uncontrollable national debt, record numbers on welfare and food stamps, etc etc. LOL. Obama is truly a man that lacks the know how to run this country!

  23. Tom Bell

    You idiots on both sides want to blame the other for our countries problems..fact is ..both sides share blame for the predicament we're in now. Just imagine if both sides worked together to do the best for our country and quit pointing the finger at each other. Wouldn't that be nice.

    John McTeague, what is it with you leftist and your ad hominem attacks? A little Saul Alinsky 101? You can't win on facts so you resort to stereotyping half the country as idiots. I thought you libs hated stereotyping? As for your revisionist history, the Republicans of 1994 maintained majorities in the elections of '96, '98 and 2000. Subsequent to 2000, the Senate split. Guess who actually lost control of the Senate and House? That would be Bill Clinton. Fact-Elected in 1990. Fact- tried to implement his socialist Utopia (remember Hillarycare?) and was directly reponsible for losing not only the Senate and House, but several Mayoral, and Gubernatorial races. Being a political animal, these losses moved Clinton to the right, i.e.signing welfare reform authored by Rick Santorum. I will actual agree with you and say Clinton was a good President, because he had the political instincts to adopt conservative principles, like approving a balanced budget. Wouldn't it be nice if Obama did the same thing? Wouldn't it be nice if he submitted a budget or Harry Reid allowed a vote on one in the Senate?

    Kelly Clarkson is breeding stock. Bill Clinton is the best President since FDR, maybe Ike. He is the smartest man in politics except maybe Barack Obama. Both of them excel in driving dumb Republicans into a frenzy of stupid comments, such as herein. That's clutch.

    Balanced budget my a$$! He robbed the Social Security system! Why the hell do you think it is in such a crappy way now? The people who invested in it were lied to. That legislation that forms the Social Security unit stated that no money may be removed for any other purpose than for Social Security benefits. It is not an entitlement as those who benefit from it have contributed to it. Unlike the welfare system where the ones who work support those who don't. Betty Boop could have balanced the budget if she stole the money from Social Security! His theft is now causing the big problems with it now. It was totally funded before his theft, now those who contributed may lose it all. Leave it to Slick Willy to screw up the one government program that worked!

  36. Pa Jo Mo

    gee what kind of bomb are all those other people looking at her sending? and what the hell is a photobomb anyway. I'm tired of made up words and people making something out of nothin.

  37. J. Tom Carr

    Clinton was accused of using state troopers to procure women for him, sexual harassment, an affair, and rape, IN ADDITION to that Monica thing that was "not sex". He's a sexual predator (or was) and has earned the disrespect shown by others. You should be offended that our tax dollars subsidize his Viagra.

    Clinton`s gaze is fixed pretty firmly on he rear as would be expected of the pervert.

    Whatever it is or how you make it out to be…..I love the picture!

  43. Angye Romero Miller

    Why must there be all of this name calling? Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. Whatever happened to showing respect towards others, even if they do not agree with you? There is no politician or political office holder who is so good and wholesome that he/she should be nominated for sainthood. There is no politican or political office holder who is so bad and evil that he/she should be damned to hellfire and brimstone. Republicans view Reagan as a saint and Democrats view him as Satan. Democrats view Clinton as a saint and Republicans view him as Satan. My point is that we should be having intelligent debates on the issues, while using respect, manners, and etiquette. Personal attacks on one another will not accomplish anything but more animosity on both sides. We are ALL Americans. In the end, don't we all want the same universal things, such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?

  44. George Cuneo

    Clinton looks at the woman sining from 3 rows back and suddenly the air is full of HATERS who hate democrats so much they even bring Nancy P into the equation. What a bnuch of assholes. Photobomb? Bullshit

    Just what in the world does anyone think he can see from that vantage point? There are at least two full bodies between him and her and all have heavy winter attire on, including her. The most he could see was the right side of her head. To read some of the comments you'd think he had his tongue hanging out yelling, "Woo Hoo!" I guess when others are watching a performance, they make sure they have their eyes drilling into the back of the person's head directly in front of them. Nah, me either. Just ridiculous.

    John McTeague Clinton was a world embarrassment. He lied to his wife. He lied to his daughter. He lied to the American public on national tv. He lied to a 22 year old intern. He lied to a grand jury. He was nearly impeached but threatened to take heads with him. What peace? He barely responded to the World Trade center bombing and the near destruction of a battleship. He empowered the terrorists to commit the 9/11 tragedy. I voted for him twice but now realize I was duped.

    Clinton was a disgrace. Sexual escapades with an intern in the white house, come on! The house of the American people! What an embarrassment he was. As far as him "fixing" the country. He did nothing. The country was pretty much on auto pilot during that time, things were good and nothing went wrong, not because of him either. He didn't have any problems to face….how could that not look like a successful run? What a joke.

    James while Bill cheating on his wife, the republicans that wanted to impeach him were also doing the same thing (Newt twice cheating on his wives another republican had a child out side his marriage and another was having a gay affair (so that is also cheating ) he was married. so stop throwing stones they might come back and hit you in the head and bring you back to to reality. The republicans wish they had a Bill Clinton if they did it might win them a elections. Hillary in 2016 HA! HA! …………………….

  82. Monserrate Rodriguez

    phdmarty The one that mess up on social security was Ronald Regan he started to borrow to fund the Iran contra. you do remember Oliver North and he did it in secret without the house and senate knowing about it. that's WHY THEY HAD HEARING, and the trickle down hurt this country because the rich didn't create jobs in this country the jobs were create in Mexico, so before you blame anyone look back. Do some fact checking before you open your big mouth. Bill Clinton was a very good president with all his scandals he got election twice so he was doing something, the people loved him ha! ha! Hillary in 2016…………..
