Obama Takes Funeral Selfie At Mandela Memorial [PHOTOS]

Selfies At Funerals

A few weeks ago, we were talking about the slightly disturbing trend amongst teens who were taking “selfies” at funerals and posting them online for the world to see. Now it seems as if the leader of the free world, President Barack Obama has joined in all the fun by snapping a three-way selfie the Nelson Mandela memorial.

Hopefully, one day they’ll look back on this pic and ask “what were we thinking,” but based on how quickly judgement flies via the interwebs, it will probably be more like later on this week.

Based on her look in the photo, Michelle Obama is the least bit impressed.

The tumblr site Selfies At Funerals opened back up for the sole purpose of posting this photo with the caption “Obama has taken a funeral selfie, so our work here is done.”

For what it’s worth, Barack wasn’t the only POTUS snappin’ photos at Mandela’s memorial service. Former President George W. Bush managed to squeeze in this pic with Bono for his Instagram at the funeral too. (peep that filter work)
