WASHINGTON, D.C. – A controversial start to President Obama’s next four years. This time, from an unlikely source: his wife, Michelle.
Elephant in the room was actually a donkey. The First Lady was spotted at the inaugural luncheon Monday, appearing to roll her eyes not once but twice at republican leader John Boehner.
The reason for the tense scene? Who knows? But our money’s on the political rivalry between Boehner and her husband.
Michelle might have been seeing red at the luncheon, but she was a vision in red at the inauguration ball later that night. The designer? Jason Wu, the same guy that designed her 2009 inaugural ball gown.
The inaugural festivities continue, with some divine intervention at Washington National Cathedral. The Obama`s along with Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, attended the inaugural prayer service. Prayers were offered by prominent clergy people from all types of faiths: Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and Sikh. Sounds like they had their bases covered.
The tradition is meant as a spiritual boost for the Pres. Hey, it couldn’t hurt.
