President Obama met with members of the U.S. Olympic women’s gymnastics team, including the gold-medal winning Fierce Five at the White House this week and marked the occasion by mimicking McKayla Maroney’s famous “not impressed” face.
McKayla Maroney first showed her not impressed face after winning the silver medal in the vault this summer, in which she was captured by cameras with a look of disappointment and disapproval during the podium ceremony in London. The image went viral and “McKayla Maroney is not impressed” memes around the world soon followed.
According to Yahoo, at the time of the visit, McKayla Maroney tweeted, “Did I just do the not impressed face with the President?”
According to many reports, President Obama was the one who suggested they take a photo together, telling Maroney that he flashes the “not impressed” look at least once a day.
“I, like, freaked out,” Maroney said. “He said, ‘Let’s do it together.’ We took a picture and now it’s everywhere.”
Regarding her meeting with President Obama, McKayla Maroney said: “He’s the coolest person I ever met. He’s got the hardest job in the entire world.”
