Having a smoke is no joke to Michelle Obama.
A lip-reader claims Speaker John Boehner’s question about cigarettes at the inaugural luncheon is what triggered an eye roll from the first lady.
Larry Wenig, a lip-reading expert, tells “Inside Edition” that his analysis shows the Ohio Republican asked President Obama if he had a cigarette before the Monday luncheon.
According to Wenig, Boehner was referring to Michelle when he quipped to the commander in chief, “Somebody won’t let you do it.”
A silent video of the exchange shows the first lady then rolling her eyes.
When asked by ITK about the lip-reader’s assertion, Boehner spokesman Michael Steel told The Hill in an email, “That is not true.”
