Michelle Obama went viral on Monday and not because of her husband’s inauguration. Rather, it was more because of her rolling her eyes “twice” at the Speaker of the House John Boehner at the Inauguration Day Luncheon.
The internet was abuzz with memes, gifs, and videos of Michelle Obama rolling her eyes at Boehner after making a comment to her and her husband. While it seemed that President Barack Obama was friendlier towards the exchange, we can’t say the same for the First Lady.
Now the next question was what was the exchange between them? Was it something that Boehner said, or was it something that the President said? Because the entire time it seemed that the only one not amused was the First Lady, and Barack and Boehner seemed to not carry it any further after her rolling her eyes.
Well, her gesture was so strong and loud that it set the internet and the world ablaze, and it could be called the stare seen around the world. Well, CBS took action, and, during Insider Edition, they took to the expertise of a lip reader, and here is what was determined:
“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
“Wenig told “Inside Edition” that Boehner — a known smoker — tapped the first lady on the arm before telling the president that “somebody won’t let you do it,” referring to Michelle Obama.”
Well, there you have it: Speaker of the House or not, Michelle Obama well not take kindly to you mocking her husband.
