Michelle Obama rolled her eyes at Republican John Boehner

First lady Michelle Obama, seen here with President Obama and the rest of the first family, threw some serious shade at the powerful Republican John Boehner.

Michelle OBama’s fan base was already massive, but it just grew tenfold after she was captured on film doing an around-the-world eye roll at Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, after he said something to President Barack Obama at the inauguration luncheon that immediately followed the event at the U.S. Capitol.

At one point during the inauguration day luncheon, President Barack Obama leaned behind his wife to talk with Boehner, who was seated to the first lady’s left. When Boehner replied, he tapped Michelle Obama as if to see if she agreed with his response. After a brief back-and-forth between the president and the speaker, the look the first lady gave suggested that she didn’t.

Take a look at the first lady first throw a disdainful side-eye glance at Boehner before rolling her eyes through the top of her skull.
