    this is what happens when you take the black BOY and put him in the white MANs position of power..inept loser'bama

    @ Juan

    Agree... First black president and the world is falling apart.


    Why isn't anyone talking about the selfie that was taken by Obama and Cameron in Johannesburg at the private party after the memorial? It's way more unsettling.


    I think it's great. They can now say they were present at the funeral together.. p.s they are still human and it's human instinct these days..


    First of all who cares. What's the big deal?! Not that I like Obama.. But really who cares he's taking a pic of himself. Wait the world is gonna end now people!

    @ Meeee

    Who is me?


    He is COMPLETLY detached from what's going on in America. He is determined to give retribution to his color by way of Healthcare but the problem is the small business & middle class if feeling the brunt of it. The media kept his secrets covered up and now we are 1 year into his 2nd term and his secrets are out. He gets no respect because he deserves none, he doesn't catch a break because of karma. The people that voted for him should be embarrassed. As far as the "Selfie" I wouldn't expect anything less from him.


    This is disgusting. He is disgusting. WTF is wrong with someone that they would do this? He is not 12 years old. But yet he seems to act that way. I have not found one good thing to say about this president. Everything he has done has raised the cost of living for the middle class. He supports the poor and wants them to live well. Therefore he makes the middle class suffer. All of us who work for a living in turn get screwed over because we have to pay for our own expenses and theirs. He makes everything a joke. This is a perfect example of that.

    @ Stacy

    100% agree with you, Stacy! He's disgusting and despicable. What president would EVER think it's appropriate to take immature selfies at a funeral???!!!

    @ Rayna

    ...this was not the funeral.
    This was a memorial. At the time that this selfie was taken, there were singing, dancing, and laughing all around. It was not fully somber, as people were reveling in Mandela's legacy.
    So, nope, no funeral.


    people must celebrate mandela changed history.
    .......WHY GRIEF?
