Obama takes ‘selfie’ at Mandela’s funeral with U.K.’s Cameron and Denmark’s PM
Michelle Obama does not approve.
President Obama snapped a notable photo at the Tuesday funeral service of Nelson Mandela — of himself.
A photograph posted on the New York Post’s Twitter account showed Mr. Obama taking the shot while holding a smartphone at arm’s length.
He took the “selfie” in a pose with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt.
USA Today said it’s not clear who owned the phone, but Mr. Obama has stated in the past that he doesn’t have an iPhone because of security reasons.
His wife, meanwhile, is pictured to his left, watching the service.
Earlier, Mr. Obama created waves in the international community by shaking hands with Cuban President Raul Castro at the memorial service for Mandela, who died on Thursday at age 95.
The handshake between the leaders of the two Cold War adversaries came as Mr. Obama was greeting a line of world leaders attending the memorial in Johannesburg for South Africa’s first black president.
