President Obama was seen taking a selfie photo with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British Prime Minister David Cameron at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela on Monday.
On Twitter, a narrative was born in which a jealous Michelle Obama throws shade at her husband and the Danish leader.

When contacted by BuzzFeed regarding the ad, the company issued the following statement:
Spirit spøkesman, Jørgen Jørgensen, stated: "I have been proud to work with Spirit in its unending quest for løw færës."
This is not the first time Spirit has tapped in to political buzz. Last month, the airline took a jab at crack-smoking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in a similar promotion.
