1. What a great confluence of wisdom.

One has to be able to laugh at oneself.

I really love our president.

2. That's funny. Now, I wonder how they agreed upon the "Not Impressed" face.

3. They teased her a lot about it during the Olympics.

He's the one that brought up "The Face". Even McKayla Maroney was impressed.

President Obama is among the most hip leaders the United States has had, so it should have come as no surprise Thursday when he struck the "not impressed" pose with Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney during a White House visit by the Fierce Five.

Maroney, a silver medalist in the vault this summer, was captured by cameras with a look of disappointment and disapproval during the podium ceremony in London. The image went viral and "McKayla Maroney is not impressed" memes around the world soon followed.

The White House tweeted the photo of Obama with Maroney on Saturday, although many knew to look for it after the gymnast tweeted on Thursday, "Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President..?''

Obama was the one who suggested they take a photo together, telling Maroney that he flashes the "not impressed" look at least once a day. "I, like, freaked out,” Maroney said. “He said, 'Let's do it together.' We took a picture and now it's everywhere."

5. I like how he's aware of what's going on

in the real world. I can't picture Bush, McCain or Rmoney even knowing about this. In spite of Rmoney 'saving' the Olympics, I doubt he pays attention to the games and athletes themselves, except for maybe dressage.
