President Obama was booed at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. on Monday night after First Lady Michelle Obama rejected him for a kiss when the two were featured on the arena’s “Kiss Cam.”
The couple was in attendance for the U.S. men’s and women’s basketball teams’ games against Brazil. President Obama didn’t know he was on the Kiss Cam when he was shown, but the crowd began booing after the First Lady leaned in for a kiss before pulling away.
Luckily President Obama got a chance for redemption.
About an hour later in the fourth quarter, the two were shown on the Kiss Cam again and the president was tipped off by daughter Malia, who was sitting next to him. This time he got a kiss:
