Here's why you should never mess with Michelle Obama

We love her but we’re also slightly scared of her.

IT’S NOT EASY being Michelle Obama.

You are one half of a famous couple and there’s the small matter of living in the White House and being First Lady.

Thankfully, Michelle Obama seems well able to handle herself.

The Washington Post reported that this week she faced a heckler at an event face to face.

We love Michelle Obama but honestly we don’t want to mess with her and here’s why:

1. If she isn’t impressed her face will tell you as much:

2. Even when with a smile on her face if she isn’t happy with you then you’ll know about it

Are you gonna mess with a “Oh sure, I bet you did” smile as scary as that?

3. If you’re talking too loud at an event you are going to get such a look

You know when you go to the cinema and someone is talking and you give them a “Would you mind keeping it down please?” exasperated look?

That’s what Michelle is up to here:

4. She will slow clap you out of the room

5. She does a very good eye roll

6. She could basically put “I’m really good at rolling my eyes” on her C.V.

7. Her “Hang on a minute there what do you think you’re doing?” expression will stop you in your tracks

You might have flashbacks to your mother putting a stop to your messing when you see this:

8. When she is making her point, she isn’t afraid to really let loose:

9.This impressive display of disdain

Mind you, Michelle Obama also seems very sound, especially when you watch videos like this:

Sounder than sound.
