The Obama Funeral Selfie- What’s The Problem or Very Tasteless?
Before I go nuts with this, I just need to say that I don’t feel the president should be taking selfie at a head of states funeral in a nation that is our friend. How do you feel about it? Nelson Mandela’s memorial service was supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime event where dozens of world leaders join thousands of South Africans in a massive stadium, all to honor the anti-apartheid icon. Instead, it became a media sensation…about a selfie.
According to CNN, halfway through the ceremony, President Barack Obama could be seen helping Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt as the two squeezed in with British Prime Minister David Cameron to take a smiling photo of themselves with a camera-phone. Meanwhile, the first lady Mrs.Obama was not impressed and she was clearly not taking part in the photo-op. Do you think the president should be acting like a teenager?
