US First Lady Michelle Obama made an eye roll at House Speaker John Boehner on Monday, January 21, 2013 during the Inauguration Day luncheon for his husband, US President Barack Obama. This is what the camera seemed to be suggesting, as shown in the video below, when it captured the uncomfortable moment.

As shown live in various US TV stations, Michelle Obama was sitting between President Obama and Speaker Boehner, who was on her left side during the luncheon of Obama‘s second inauguration ceremony. At one point, Mr. Obama can be seen leaning behind his First Lady to talk with the House Speaker.
While the two were talking, Boehner politely tapped Michelle Obama, who was enjoying the food, probably to see if she agreed on his reply to the president. But since her mouth was busy chewing, she did not manage to reply. However, her eyes can be seen somehow rolling her eyes at him, and her smile did not seem to be that comfortable.
Apparently, the conversation cannot be heard clearly but Mrs. Obama was seen making an eye roll at Boehner again and did not utter a single word at him. On the other hand, President Obama can be seen flashing his usual smile and slightly tapped his wife’s shoulder, likely signaling her that “It’s OK.”
As we all know, President Obama and Speaker John Boehner are not exactly best of friends for years now since they have opposing views on various issues, including the controversial budget cuts. But on his speech during the luncheon, the president managed to crack a joke about the relationship between his wife Michelle and Boehner.
“Michelle and the Speaker of the House came to a meeting of the minds that I may be delaying the proceedings too much. And so I’m just going to be extraordinarily brief and say thank you.” President Obama said on the first part of his speech, who also thanked Vice President Joe Biden and their supporters.
