President Obama and McKayla Maroney are not impressed

By Daniel S Levine,

President Obama met with the Olympic gold medal-winning women’s gymnastics team this week, so of course he had to pose with McKayla Maroney, who was more than happy to show how unimpressed she was.

In a photo posted on the official White House Facebook page, Obama and Maroney are shown both with Maroney’s now famous reaction to only winning the silver medal in the vaulting event.

“President Obama and McKayla Maroney are not impressed,” the caption reads.

In the first three hours that the photo was posted, it was liked over 31,000 times and shared over 6,600 times.

Maroney had made the expression when she was presented the medal and it instantly created an Internet sensation. It inspired a Tumblr blog that continues to show how nothing ever impresses the gymnast.

“You just have to laugh at what happens,” she told CNN about the reaction in August. “Everything happens for a reason and you just have to turn it into something positive.”

Obama met with the entire team on Thursday. Maroney was joined by Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross, Jordyn Wieber and Gabby Douglas.

Back in August, Obama was campaigning for reelection, so he was not able to invite them to the White House after their win in London. Still, he did get a chance to speak with them over the phone.
