Just when I thought it wasn’t possible for me to love Michelle Obama even more than I already do, she does something that makes me laugh, beam with pride, and fall in love with her all over again.
Now, we all know that there is no love lost between the Obamas and that idiot Speaker of the House John Boehner, but the First Lady couldn’t hide her contempt today at the Inaugural Luncheon as she refuses to acknowledge something Boehner said, and (if you watch the video closely you could see it), effectively rolls her eyes at him as she takes another bite.
I am all for throwing shade at nasty people, and Michelle Obama does it with grace and class here. This piece of gold is courtesy of Tumblr blogger Mattyrab.
Now, some might say that Mrs. Obama could have stopped short of her obvious disdain for Boehner, but, on the other side of that, he could have shown some respect for her husband, which, as far as I can see, he has never done. He certainly didn’t today, as anyone who watch the inaugural events knows. Now that President Obama is sworn in, signed, sealed, and delivered for a second term, I think she deserves to be able to relax a bit more and show what she really thinks. Further, it isn’t like everyone doesn’t already know how she likely feels about the man anyway.
Besides all that, Boehner was probably whining about something as usual, on the verge of tears, and Mrs. Obama was probably thinking how her hormonal teenage daughters have more control over their emotions than this man who holds the highest position in the House of Representatives does. And OMFG! Just HOW did poor Michelle wind up with the misfortune of having to sit next to that cretin at her husband’s Inaugural Luncheon?
Don’t worry, Michelle. We’ll do our best to get rid of him for you in 2014.
