Watch This: First Lady Side-Eyes Boehner

We're dying to know what inspired the Inaugural Eye Roll.


Even the most official event has its moments of absolute comedy. Have you seen this one from Monday's congressional luncheon, just after President Obama took the oath of office?

NPR describes the moment, which was originally posted on Tumblr by a blogger, as "a look first lady Michelle Obama gave Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner during the luncheon." Humor blog Awesomely Luvvie, a little more to the point, declares "Michelle Obama's side-eye to John Boehner is everything" and writes, "Madame FLOTUS! You better give that hating ass dude the best side-eye you got. I LOVE IT!"

Do we have any readers who also happen to be lip-readers? It would be great to know what exactly inspired the Inaugural Eye Roll.
