Really? Obama poses for ‘selfie’ at Mandela Funeral
Last week Hopkins shared a story about a girl who drew criticism for taking a ‘selfie’ while a man was rescued from the Brooklyn Bridge. Now, President Obama finds himself in hot water over a photo he and British Prime Minister Cameron took with the Danish Prime Minister at the Mandela funeral:

Although the photo looks bad, people who were in attendance at the memorial service noted that it was a celebration, and everyone was dancing and laughing. In fact, most agree that Mandela himself would have probably joined in.
One person, however, was not amused. Looks like Barack will be sleeping on the couch in the Oval Office tonight:
