12. He Snapped A Tacky Selfie During A Memorial Service
The American president is supposed to be the image of stately composure. That is why so many people were appalled that he would agree to snap a selfie with David Cameron and Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in 2013. To make things worse, Michelle can be seen fuming off to the side.
Granted, firsthand accounts emerged testifying that it was a joyous occasion – fit for selfie snapping – and Michelle wasn’t unhappy at all, but still it seems a tad gauche for the president to exhibit vanity and boredom at a ceremony honoring a man’s death.
