Lip reader figures out what John Boehner said that made Michelle Obama roll her eyes.

In the conversation, with Obama and Boehner leaning back to converse behind Michelle's head: "Boehner asked President Obama — a longtime smoker who claims to have kicked the habit — if he’d had a chance to have a cigarette before the luncheon. The speaker, a chain smoker, then quipped, 'Somebody [Michelle] won’t let you do it.'"

Judge Michelle's famous eye-roll now.

I only saw that gif thing here, and didn't study it closely. It looked to me like the eye roll thing was the type you'd make after a joke that everyone acknowledges was bad, or pun like. The joke was directed at her, she realized that and did the "aw c'mon guys" eye roll. Just fine.

But she needs to stop telling me what to eat.

chickelit said...

Lack of clear and convincing evidence and a bullshit poll which lacks a full range of choices.

The lip reading thing though should at least inspire a suite of YouTube knock-off videos akin to the Hitler Bunker series.

chickelit said...

Even if true, it doesn't excuse the elbows on the table and the shovel-ready feeding.

DADvocate said...

There are times when I wonder if Michele is tired of putting up with Barack. This is one of those times. Boehner just happened to be there.

Inga said...

Good for Michelle. All the abuse she was handed by folks here for being bad mannered, don't you feel like the stupid party now?

Chip Ahoy said...

Elbows on table, leaning over plate, protective stance over food. That must have been one hell of a sorority.

Chip Ahoy said...

Upon noticing that, John F. Kennedy would have leaned over and whispered to the person sitting next to him "N.C."

Inga said...

Maybe she was leaning forward so they could talk, maybe she was angry and hungry simultaneously.:)

pm317 said...

And what was with her sitting forward and hunching over the food and shoveling it into her mouth and when nobody else was eating.. For a woman who advocates less eating, she definitely eats a lot.

Aridog said...

Can't vote on this one.

My dad use to say that the one with the longest and strongest arms got more at the dinner table. He grew up in the middle of a family of 8 kids.

This could explain her rite to bare arms.

Patrick said...

That was pretty good, Aridog.

Time to go out to lunch. Gig money from last night burning a hole in my pocket.

This will quickly disintegrate into the routine accusations of bigotry and racism, and thus become a flaming pit of shit.

I've got better things to do.

Well rolling your eyes is considered bad mannered.

Mark O said...

One word: haunches.

Shouting Thomas said...

This is the kind of shit that draws flies.

Expect Ritmo the Retard to appear at any moment to proclaim his love for blacks folks and accuse all who disagree with him of yearning to own slaves!

MayBee said...

Boehner's office denies it.

Michelle's dinner manners are appalling.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Michelle is a totally classless, crude, unmannered, graceless, selfish, narcissistic piece of crap. She dresses in the most weird and almost bag lady fashion most of the time. The calls to try and force us to agree that she is a fashion icon are laughable.

She shovels in the lavish food that most of us will never have the opportunity to eat like a hungry stevedore, while telling us to eat twigs and berries.

She takes expensive and frivolous vacations while we sit in our little hovels trying to stay warm.

She has a staff of lackeys and servants, that would rival Marie Antoinette, paid for by all of us little peons.

I am ashamed that she is the First Lady and can't wait until we see the backside of her enormous ass.

There you go again, trolling that raggedly $20 on a string past the trailer park.

Is this lip reader working the Superbowl?

EDH said...

You really can't see/hear what Obama says behind Michelle's back.

"I see a purple idiot, speaks German with a big spunky Irish Labrad-Doodle puppy."

Granny Jan said...

What difference does it make?

On the other hand what's with Obama constantly touching or picking his nose in public?..and I mean constantly. You can see it at the end of the rolling eyes video. I have a guess what is behind his peculiar "habit".

dbp said...

If the lip reader is accurate then the first lady's eye roll is perfectly understandable, if a bit juvenile for a woman her age.

Went to bed last night, singing a song,
Woke up this morning and my nose was gone (imagine my embarrassment).
Cocaine, run all round my brain

Jay said...

Does Michelle Obama do anything other than eat, vacation, and act as a moral scold on food consumption while of course being over weight herself?

Jay said...

Inga said...
Good for Michelle.


Right!

Because heaven forbid her and her husband show a bit of good will toward someone attempting to crack a joke with them!

Keep clapping!

Idiot.

edutcher said...

Either 2 or 3 would work, although I went with 3, but suddenly I feel sorry for Barry.

Not that sorry, but sorry.

McTriumph said...

This is a non-issue, no one should be surprised, no one has ever expected Michelle of having either a sense of humor , class or being gracious.

In her defense, she didn't ask for the job--it was feasted upon her.

Like that's what Boehner really said. I'll believe it when Boehner and Michele corroborate it. Of any of the commenters I've read here, garage included, none are as stupid as you. Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber.

DADvocate said...

Chip - maybe she belonged to one of these sororities.

What's taking so long at Bad Lip Reading?

Darrell said...

Lefties told us that lip reading is totally unreliable when people were trying to figure out what Michelle and Barack were saying during that 9/11 ceremony in 2011---the one that pushed the limits of their short attention span. Now lip reading is 100% accurate and it was all Boehner's fault. Go figure.

Writ Small said...

The context mitigates what looked like childish behavior. I could not imagine Laura Bush or Ann Romney making such a display, but it was a bit of a cheap shot by Boehner. He was trying for common ground with Obama at Michelle's expense: bad form. Given Michelle and Obama's reaction to the comment, however, Boehner's comment struck home.

Darrell said...

Boehner: Nice buffalo!
Michelle: Shut your fucking mouth!

edutcher said...

That was a good one.

JAL said...

Is this the same lip reader who read Ms. Obama saying "All this for a damn flag?"

Just wondering.

deborah said...

My take on the vid was that she was doing the wife eye-roll at the men's hardy-har-har. But the elbows and the shoveling food in...that is so wrong for a First Lady. I chose option three.

Joe Schmoe said...

Another substance-free day in the Obama administration. I don't mean in the way of narcotics, but in the way of inconsequence; we hoi-polloi gossiping about the monarchial mealtime manners of our betters while they fritter away their time with salon soirees.

Fritters. Wonder if Chip Ahoy has ever dabbled in fritters. Off to his site...

Joe Schmoe said...

Don't know which side of the fence to ride?

Let your ideology be your guide!







Baron Zemo said...

What did the Republican lip readers say?

Because you know you can't trust the Democratic ones. Just sayn'

Baron Zemo said...

Someday when suntan boy writes his memoirs we will know what he actually said.

It looks like he said "God bless America" and then the Klingon rolled her eyes.

But I will wait for the book to come out.

Alex said...

Inga rolled her eyes at her previous husband which is why he divorced the fucking bitch.

Freeman Hunt said...

That's when you go, "Haw, haw," and change the subject.

Synova said...

I think it depends entirely on whether an "eye roll" is the equivalent of "men!" or supposedly so nasty that it makes sense to get all excited about how she "showed" Boehner, yes she did!

Inga said...

Alex, my husband died.

Alex said...

Yeah your fucking nagging and being a general bitch killed him.

Inga said...

Oh I knew that was coming. So Alex, what drives you to get so personal and vicious? Do you not think its odd and makes you look a bit crazy?

JAL said...

You know Alex, insults on Althouse tend to be more clever (except in some extenuating circumstances.)

Inga and I do not see eye to eye, but I have to say your recent ad hominems don't add to the discussion.

Alex said...

Looks like I hit the sore/sweet spot. Zinger!!!

hahaha I RULE!!!!

Inga said...

Oh yeah, you da man!

Kirby Olson said...

BO should outlaw smoking or indicate that anyone who does it won't be covered by Obamacare. You could still smoke grass and hash in Colorado but only with a water pipe to keep the intense heat out of your lungs and only if you're listening to Jefferson Airplane since the Democrats like Jefferson.

Amartel said...

Haha, thought it might be smoking related. Boehner doesn't lie about his smoking but Obama does. Pointing that out is unwelcome conduct it seems. I wonder if President Golfpants McPresent has to pay higher premiums like the regular smokers or if his gold-plated government employee elite plan exempts him from having to worry about such minor little details.
