Mondayâ€™s post-inaugural luncheon was a case study in body language--and nearly all of the physical evidence centered on House Speaker John Boehner. One interaction in particular has already become an Internet meme today: Michelle Obama rolling her eyes after listening to a comment from the Ohio congressman.
Tumblr blogger â€śMattyrabâ€ť was the first to capture the eye roll in action, sharing video of the exchange with the world in a display described as a â€śhistorical moment in shade throwing.â€ť
The video has already been shared thousands of times across social media sites with viewers speculating on what sparked the First Ladyâ€™s facial expression.
We donâ€™t have audio of their exchange, so for now itâ€™s impossible to know exactly what Boehner said to Obama. In fact, itâ€™s entirely possible that her eye roll was simply a reaction to an innocuous joke from Boehner.
