Inaugural Luncheon: Michelle Obama Sets The Record Straight About Boehner Eye Roll

The moment captured on video "bore no reflection to how I felt on that day," First Lady says...
A video of First Lady Michelle Obama seeming to roll her eyes at House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) while the two dined at the Head Table during President Obama's Inaugural Luncheon on Jan. 21 in the US Capitol went viral on the internet, and Mrs. Obama discussed the issue in an interview that aired Tuesday on ABC's Good Morning America.

"I enjoyed the conversation, had a wonderful time at the lunch. That one shot bore no reflection to how I felt on that day," Mrs. Obama said


"It's difficult to interpret, you know, what's going on in a situation by one shot on a camera…it's not an accurate reflection of anyone's emotions on that day." 

The 18-second soundless video caused an endless series of headlines as lip-reading observers speculated about what Mrs. Obama was rolling her eyes at.
