Truth Behind Obama's Selfie

Truth Behind Obama's Selfie

The photographer who snapped the photo of President Obama posing for a "selfie" says people are reading it wrong.

The photo shows the president smiling and laughing along with the prime ministers of Great Britain and Denmark.

First Lady Michelle Obama is sitting off to the side looking very displeased.

Roberto Schmidt is the guy who took that picture and he says the first lady was joking around, laughing and smiling too just before he took the shot.

Schmidt also says that Obama's laughing matched the mood of the event -- he says South Africans all around were dancing, singing and laughing to honor their departed leader.
