It wouldn’t be an event attended by Bill Clinton without Bill Clinton finding a way to become the centre of attention.
The former U.S. president made sure the kids on Twitter remembered who he was by photobombing Kelly Clarkson as she performed “My Country ‘Tis of Thee.”
The photo was posted to Twitter by Doug Gordon, a TV producer from Brooklyn, and was shared hundreds of times.
Similarly passed around online was a .gif of First Lady Michelle Obama shaking her head and rolling her eyes in historic fashion at something Republican House Speaker John Boehner said during the Inauguration Day luncheon.
Unfortunately, there was no audio attached to the clip, so there’s no way to know what was said by U.S. President Barack Obama’s de facto rival in Washington.
The president, perhaps looking at a brewing fight with the Republican-controlled House, tried to smooth things over in his remarks at the luncheon.
“Michelle and the speaker of the House came to a meeting of the minds that I may be delaying the proceedings too much,” Obama said. “And so I’m just going to be extraordinarily brief and say thank you.”
