Michelle Obama’s eye roll: What was she thinking?

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

By Allison Brennan, WASHINGTON (CNN) — If President Barack Obama’s relationship with House Speaker John Boehner was contentious in the past, he certainly wasn’t showing it while the two sat at the head table of a congressional lunch following Monday’s inauguration.

The two appeared to have a lighthearted exchange that prompted an apparent eye roll from first lady Michelle Obama, who was seated between them.

Was it something Boehner said that prompted the reaction? He tapped her shoulder while she ate her lunch.

Or was it something the clearly amused president said?

Or maybe it was something both of them said.

Maybe it was her lunch.

But because there’s no audio from the exchange, it’s hard to tell what prompted the reaction that caught fire on the Internet.

We thought we’d leave it up to you. What do you think the first lady was thinking?

    Maybe she had something stuck in her throat. Ridiculous ! What if her dress moved while she was walking ? Could it have been a fart..

    OMG! WHO CARES? Stop creating drama and rather concentrate on how nice our leaders with opposite views can sit and dine civilly when they throw chairs at each other in other countries. What's next? Are you going to analyze the sincerity of handshakes or how many teeth show when the Obamas greeted each Republican?
