Watch First Lady Michelle Obama Roll Her Eyes at Republican House Speaker John Boehner

Just in case you were wondering, First Lady Michelle Obama has no love for House Speaker Boehner. Don’t believe us, watch her roll her eyes  after  Boehner cracks a joke to President Obama at the luncheon that took place after the inauguration.

It certainly shouldn’t come as any surprise that the First Lady isn’t feeling House Speaker Boehner, considering his past comments about Obama, but itmichelle and boehner is rare that you get to witness such a candid moment from Mrs. Obama.

So far, neither the White House nor the Speaker’s office has commented on what Boehner and the President had been discussing or why it elicited such a dismissive response from the First Lady.

The Speaker and the First Lady did agree that President Obama should keep his speeches short, though. So at least there was a bit of middle ground.

“Michelle and the speaker of the House came to a meeting of the minds that I may be delaying the proceedings too much,” Obama told the audience. “And so I’m just going to be extraordinarily brief and say thank you.”

    I did not see that as the First Lady rolling her eyes. She appeared to me as being deep in thought and enjoying her food.

    If my social security check is delayed because of Mr. Boehner and his cohorts ;rolling of the eyes will not be all that
    he gets from fellow seniors and myself. This is not a hand out to us. We worked hard and contributed to the Soicial
    Fund over the years. If I was near him he might get rolled eyes and a finger!

    There was no “rolling of the eye’s going on from our First Lady. It appears she was disinterested in the conversation, got out of the line of conversation, by moving forward, and continuing with her meal. She probably knew it was going to be a long time before she would be able to rest and enjoy an meal for the rest of the day. What I am most disappointed about is we let the crazy, white media (FOX news) churn up a frenzy about absolutely nothing. Dr. Boyce you of all people know this, but I have noticed you like taking any opportunity to speak negative of the president and the first lady. You are becoming like Smiley and West…just a hater.

    Did you guys read an article saying that Republicans are Meeting to Discuss Minority Voter Strategies in the Plantation Room as preparation for 2014 elections? Please don’t trust republicans whether Whites or Blacks. They are all liars, racists, hypocrites and without a soul. They were there to trick Blacks. How can you expect Republicans to address social issues when they do not believe in equal employment opportunities for Blacks? Republicans do not believe solving unemployment- because under full employment wages go up eating profits of their friends – CEOs. Republicans do not believe family leave, sick leave, military leave and fair minimum wages. Republicans do believe in investing in poor black children education – they don’t want their children mix with poor black children. If they talk about the future, they mean how many mistresses they will have tomorrow. That’s why they divorce and take new women big time. Watch out those white males in picture – they were looking for black women. Republicans do not believe helping black local small business retool their shops. Republicans encourage CEOs to ship jobs abroad leaving black people jobless or on welfare – and they call them names such BIT suckers. Look even their candidate, Romney, was notorious of shipping jobs off shore to avoid tax. These are same republicans who pretend to wonder why governments here experience deficits are the same people who avoid tax by banking in Swiss banks. Republicans agree with RyanCare which kills Black seniors who exhaust $5,000 voucher. Republicans don’t want Obamacare because poor Blacks and rich republicans will have same access to medical services. Republicans, as Don Trump said, love corruption to cheat on investors. They want to fool Blacks as they did in 2010 some Blacks fell under TEA Party lies. We discovered their tricks last November. We re-elected President Obama. We are happy we going to have Obama as President for the next 4 years.

    As a kid our parents tried hard to teach us impeccable table manners, and laying your arms on the table was a definitely a no!no! Stuffing your mouth was another No! No! Talking about rolling your eyes, when my grandmother started rolling her eyes we knew we were doing something wrong.

    It appears she is really into her meal and does not want to conversate. Michelle teaches her girls constantly that they are always being watched. I find it hard to believe she was rolling her eyes, I think she was simply protecting her space. She glanced to her left and returned to eating her lunch,period.

    It was not so much what he said, it is what he did. Michelle Obama is 1st Lady, you don’t “touch” her to get her attention. It was very disrespectful of him to hit her on te arm at a state function as if she was “no body”.

    White people act as if they are “entitled” to touch African-Americans. They take every opportunity to touch African-American adults and children. We need to put a stop to thi behavior, it is nasty and disrespectful, we are not their property.

    Even if she did roll her eyes…why are you making such a big deal about it. Why not write an article about the historical significance of America re electing a Black man as as President for the first time in history.

    January 22, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    The media certainly knows how to sensationalize trivia. Michelle appeared to be acknowledging, perhaps reluctantly, a a comment being made after he nudged her and tried to drag her into the conversation he was having with the Pres. That was hardly eye rolling, but she did give him shade. And, yes her table manners were not the most gracious, but apparently Michelle is not hung up on pomp and circumstance. She shops at Target and wears fashions by unknown designers. So what! She’s knows who she is and she’s unpretentious. Bravo for FLOTUS!!!

    This is a brand new day! The Obamas are totally different than any of the previous first families,so get over it already!! Our first lady is an intelligent,educated, strong,opinionated,classey,beautiful,& solid African American woman. She wears many hats, with the main one being partner & supporter to our Commander In Chief, The President of the United States of America. That being said, she is always classy, but strong & firm. First Lady will probably never resort to kissing as–s, because that is not her style even before the White House! In my own personal observations she seems to be one who carefully observes people, and is very straight-forward but professional in her responses to people, especially those she has reasons to have issues with. Because she is a very classy woman, the first African American First Lady ever in the White House standing as an example, she won’t utter the first things that come to mind, but don’t get it twisted, okay!! “Sister Girl is no joke !!!” You will get the message without her loosing face, &/or comming out of character!!

    In my opinion Michelle is not he one the media should have been looking at they should have been looking at his arrogant ass he completely sat up there like he did not have to acknowledge the Obama’s and he was so much more important than they were just like an old racist ass southern slave master!! The image that the United States of America wants to get rid of!!! Boehner is like all racist white people and racist black people he wants to tell black people how they should act and talk because he cannot help it, his own racism makes him think he has the right to do this like all racist people and his arrogance shows!! This man is a piece of crap in my opinion and America would be better off without him. Look at all the problems he has caused this country!! Oh I forgot it’s President Obama’s fault like everything else!!!

    She’s hunching over her food like it’s a trough. That’s not class, that’s bad manners. Photographs are just that, photographs. Stills. Posed. Told what to do, where to put her shoulders and her hands. Left to her own devices she is not classy. At all. White and black have nothing to do with it. I’m not a skinny white girl, btw, but that’s another matter entirely.

    January 22, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    Why does the media always try to sensationalize things that don’t exist? This is just a misinterpretation of body language plain and simple. She was trying to be polite, perhaps reluctantly, since he slapped her on the arm to dragg her into the conversation he was having with the Pres. That was hardly eye rolling, but she def gave him shade.

  26. big annie

    January 22, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Hmmmm….can’t really say that this was an “eye roll”. To me it looks like The President and Boehner were having a conversation and she was listening while she was eating. Then Boehner hit her arm to get some type of verbal response from her, but she was busy eating and it really wasn’t HER conversation anyway.

    Mrs. Obama was not rolling her eyes. Boener was
    talking to the President. Please don’t do what they do to us. Don’t make our First Lady look bad. Knowing cameras are on her in such a venue as this, do you really think she would do this in public? You obviously misinterpreted what the camera captured.

    What a misleading topic. I enjoy your articles. However, I one would not have expected such an article from this organization. The First Lady has class. No where in the video does it appear she is rolling her eyes.

    Perhaps, the editor of this article would have done best by inquiring of the FLOTUS what actually occured. Speculations can make one appear as an —–. So, YourBlackWorld.Com, do not take on that role.

    Stop the rhetoric with your articles.

    There are more negative HATERS up here than I ever imagined! It shows that they care about what we say an do. But they can NEVER be original an mind their own business. They need to face reality an admit it, ( This is the GREATEST President that has ever been the leader of this Country.)

  33. Ann G.

    January 22, 2013 at 10:47 am

    Before anyone can really comment on this, you would have to have heard the conversation. The President is laughing, therefore the eye rolling may had to do with the subject matter not the Speaker.

    Let me tell you something sister, the first lady does not care what racists think of her. She is a classy lady, beautiful, stylish and LOOOOOOOOOOOVED by this country. That is why these SK@ANKS and racists who slither on this blog hate her. There are issues plaguing this country, yet these SK@ANKS and Racists and a few brain washed Oreos feel the need to talk about what someone wears, or if they rolled their eyes, or if they put their elbows on a darn table or not. ARE YOU SERIOUS. I am so glad the Obamas are so above the childish immature and racist comments. They do not even respond to tem. Even BUSH responded to Kanye calling him a racist, but the Obamas will not stoop to the level of a racist or a hater. SO FOR YOU ALL WHO HATE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE WHO THEY ARE MARVELOUS. Do me and the rest of the world a favor SUFFAH. And yes I spelled it S U F F A H. For emphasis.

    January 22, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Just be glad she didn’t smack him! Michelle is a classy, smart black woman and she can hold her own to the likes of John…don’t forget she is Princeton and Harvard educated…John is just a woos.

We can tell you are immature as hell by your little tired @zz comment. The first lady is gorgeous, statuesque and stylish to a fault.

    Oh my goodness! We found out that the first lady is human! Isn’t that funny! And she is the first of the “first ladies” to ever “roll her eyes”, I guess you must find some fault in her, after all, she is not perfect! Well, well, well! And, she is NOT the President of the United States! If that is all we have to worry about, so be it! She can roll her eyes and those who think she looked “country” is just plain jealous! She is a beautiful lady!

If the only thing you have going for you is sitting on your lard @ZZ trying to find negative comments about how a person looks, then your mother should not have gone through so much trouble pushing your @zz out of her womb you pathetic sorry excuse for a human being.

      I agree with you. I unsubscribe early last year and waited a year, thinking that it will change. It didn’t so I am unsubscribing again. This website is what I would call “bashing Black folk”. It’s bad enough we have to take negativity from main stream but it hurts worse when we do it to each other over such trivial bs

    Regardless of what color either one of them are, it would be nice to see our First Lady use proper table manners at a formal function. It isn’t that hard to sit up straight, bring the food to your mouth, and keep your elbows off the table. There are plenty of videos on You Tube that would show her how.

    • BizG

      You are fooling no one you racist. I’ll be willing to bet all you skinny sickly looking white women are so jealous because white men no longer see you all as attract9ve. most of you look like skinny little boys. That is how most white women are shaped now a days. There is nothing wrong with how the first lady conducts herself, which is why she is always on every stylish women magazine cover. You are one jealous sk@nk. And just on the small chance that you are black, you need to wake up and smell that hot perking coffee. We are who we are. There is no one race who can dictate how to act and how not to act. She is a class act, whether your broke down @zz want to admit it or not. She is the HEAD WOMAN in charge of this country. Get over it sk@nk

    She didn’t roll her eyes at him. Mrs. Obama was eating and he he barely tapped her arm. She briefly acknowlege it while eating at the same time. Although I am more than sure she doesn’t like Boehner (can’t blame her) this topic is so misleading. As a black First Lady Mrs. Obama can’t even afford one misstep or show that she is human. She always
    has to be perfect for the mainstream, white public.
