Michelle Obama Turns Down President Barack Obama on Olympic Kiss Cam

President Barack Obama and his first lady Michelle Obama are no strangers to PDA. In fact, the loving royal couple regularly make the nation blush with their loving displays of affection and teamwork. But when it came time for the First Couple to turn up the heat during a recent Olympic warm-up match in Washington, D.C., Michelle left President Obama and their fans feeling icy cold.

During the first half of the game, the “kiss cam” landed on the first couple, and despite a roar of support from the crowd and an obviously ready look on President Obama’s face, Michelle, who was visibly shocked, refused to give in to an on screen kiss.

Reports that fans were openly disappointed, with some even boo-ing the couple for failing to give them a good show.

But when the “kiss cam” centered on them once again during the fourth-quarter, Michelle finally redeemed herself and obliged. President Obama wrapped his arms around his wife and gave her a warm kiss that was met with an eruption of applause from the crowd.

Even when they’re holding back, the first couple is just too cute. Anyhoo, if you want to see more of  Barack and Michelle and their popular PDA, check out our gallery below. – nicholas robinson
