Michelle Obama may now be the former first lady, but on the Internet, she’s being celebrated as the reigning shade queen, thanks to her facial expressions on Inauguration Day.

When the Trumps arrived at the White House and were welcomed by the Obamas, Melania Trump presented Obama with a gift in a Tiffany & Co. blue box. It was a nice gesture (and a traditional one), but split-second freeze frames of Obama’s face have people thinking that she wasn’t really there for the present.



People were also watching Obama closely during the actual inauguration ceremony, interpreting her facial expressions as ones of discontent. Many people on Twitter felt she captured their own feelings about the whole affair.

 










It’s unconfirmed whether the former FLOTUS’s looks could mean anything more, but now that she’s out of the White House, she doesn’t really need to keep up her poker face anymore.
