A Smiling Obama Snaps a Selfie at Mandela’s Memorial Service

What is the proper decorum at a funeral or memorial service? It surely does not involve leaning in close with ones compatriots and snapping self portraits (Selfies). President Obama yet again depicts complete indifference to what goes on around him living with the belief that he (Obama) is the center of attention at all times and in all places. Situational ethics alone would deter most people from doing what Obama and other leaders did at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service. Instead of demonstrating leadership with class, President Obama demonstrates just how narcissistic and arrogant he is.

2 Timothy 3:2-5  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

 

President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt were spotted snapping a “selfie” together at Tuesday’s memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg.

It’s unclear whose phone they were using — we know Obama doesn’t have an iPhone.

First lady Michelle Obama, sitting next to the group, did not participate.

The image quickly made its way onto the Tumblr blog “Selfies at Funerals” (yes, that’s a thing).

U.K. newspaper The Independent wondered whether the trio would one day look back on the shot and think, “what on earth were we doing? We’re world leaders, not a bunch of giggling teenagers. We’re attending the memorial service of Nelson Mandela. Couldn’t we have waited a bit before goofing around?”

As TheBlaze Blog pointed out, it’s not the only attention Obama and Thorning-Schmidt garnered at Tuesday’s service — witness these photos of the two leaders with a none-too-pleased-looking Michelle Obama:

    I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised by this and I guess I wasn’t, more disgusted than anything. Interesting look on Michelle’s face! He is incapable of showing leadership with class.
