Michelle Obama's Now Famous Side Eye Glare Explained By Photographer: "Photos Lie!!!"

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaMichelle ObamaGIFs

Michelle Obama selfie explained

You guys, Michelle Obama is totes cool with that "selfie," why wouldn't she be?

Ya know, the selfie that her husband President Barack Obama took with British Prime Minister David Cameron & Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at the Nelson Mandela memorial!

Despite the glare she has (above), she was totally cool will what went down, at least according to the photographer who took the picture, that is!

Roberto Schmidt, the photographer, took to his blog to explain the picture.

He said:

"I read on social media that Michelle Obama seemed to be rather peeved on seeing the Danish prime minister take the picture. But photos can lie.

In reality, just a few seconds earlier the first lady was herself joking with those around her, Cameron and Schmidt included. Her stern look was captured by chance.

At the time, I thought the world leaders were simply acting like human beings, like me and you. I doubt anyone could have remained totally stony faced for the duration of the ceremony, while tens of thousands of people were celebrating in the stadium.

For me, the behaviour of these leaders in snapping a selfie seems perfectly natural."

Well, at least that's cleared up now!

Whether she's laughing, smiling, or showing off the best shade in the political world, there is no doubt that Mobama is AH-MAZE and can throw that glare wherever she pleases!

Plus, we're just really happy it was caught on camera!

    Asians all together can hear, and see what you're visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don't want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

    I don't care how they're trying to spin it, Michelle looks mad and crazy as fk right there! Like she bout to go diary of a mad black woman buck wild on Obama. Barry, sleep with one eye open! LOL. On a serious note though, I hate when women are oversensitive and jealous for no reason. Makes us all look crazy.

    I think that it is the right tone to show a happy disposition in light of Mandela's legacy but maybe not THAT happy (and Obama looks quite under the spell/charm of the Danish beauty!!!). It is not the first time Michelle glazes at him like that
