While attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt commemorated the moment by taking a photo together.

Normally, there wouldn’t be an uproar over just any photo.  The three world leaders decided to take a ‘selfie’ together while in the stands at the memorial service.

In the photo making its rounds through social media, the president and the prime ministers are bunched together in the stands trying to get in the smartphone’s camera frame.

Well outside of that grouping, the first lady seems uninterested in the president’s activities looking out towards the actual event’s activities.

That wasn’t the only interesting photo of the president at the memorial service.

President Obama is making waves by shaking hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro.

Let us know what you think.




And not really sure when this occurred during the chain of events, but it happened…




And a full recap…
