McKayla Maroney and President Obama

A photo of President Obama mimicking Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney’s not impressed facial expression went viral on the Internet over the weekend. The White House tweeted the photo that was taken during a visit by Maroney and the “Fierce Five” Olympic gymnasts team.

Maroney was surprised that Obama asked about her expression of disgust at winning a silver medal during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

“He was the one who brought it up,” Maroney told The Associated Press. “We were about to leave and he said, `I want to talk to you one second about the face.’ He said, `I pretty much do that face at least once a day.”‘

Maroney tweeted about making “the face” at the White House. “Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President.”
