No he's a narcissist. If you are in doubt check "symptoms".

I will say that it is rather inappropriate in that context. They should have done that elsewhere, if at all.

Of course, I'm surprised the conservatives care about class when it comes to this event since they've made it clear that they regard Mandela as scum.

I personally think it's in poor taste but it's going to be blown up by the conservative media, just as it would be blown up by the liberal media if Bush did it.

Either way.....probably not the best move.

The venue didn't lend itself for decorum. It was rainy and service 4 hours longs with drones for speakers. Obama is a narcissist but whatever. This country has sunk so far a POTUS selfie just fails to move or shock me really.

When it comes to poor taste, this President is standing on the historical podium.

I'm embarrassed for anyone still defining positions in left and right terms. There is no left, there is no right. There's only a single political class that says whatever their constituency wants to hear, only to betray them once elected. Bush is Obama, and Obama is Bush, the only difference is that one pretends to be black when it suits him.

There's plenty of real things to be upset about. No reason to get het up over faux paus.

Yup, that look says "if you keep being friendly with that other female you better hope your secret service detail is present when we get home"

Or it could be that she liked the person being buried and is upset about it.

Looks like Michelle wasn't having as good a time at Mandela's funeral as her husband. LOL
Memorial. Funeral. Those are not the same words. I wouldn't do it. Then again, I'm not a politician. Perhaps they do stupid stuff at functions. I know, it might seem weird, but I've heard that happening before.

This thread should be stickied. We need to focus on the important stuff. Like selfies.
