President Obama takes selfie at Mandela memorial service

President Obama is being criticized for his behavior at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

The president was spotted posing for a picture during the memorial service in South Africa’s FNB Stadium yesterday morning.

He was seen leaning in for a “selfie” cell phone picture with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British Prime Minster David Cameron.

Images of the “selfie” quickly spread online. Critics called the photo and behavior of the three world leaders “inappropriate.”
