Michelle Obama's Inauguration Day eye roll heard 'round the world is still drawing speculation about what House Speaker John Boehner said to cause the first lady to roll her eyes during the inaugural luncheon. One report claims that it was all about a cigarette smoking joke. Inside Edition got lip-reading expert Larry Wenig to look at the video, and he contends that the Ohio Republican and smoker Boehner asked President Obama, who quit in 2010, if he'd been able to have a smoke during the day, and then referred to Michelle as he joked, "Somebody won't let you do it," spurring the instantly famous eye roll. While that may sound plausible, Boehner spokesman Michael Steel emailed The Hill, "That is not true." But the speaker himself doesn't know what was the cause. After a closed-door meeting of House Republicans last night, GOP Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana told reporters of Boehner, "He said, 'I have no clue what that was about.' . . . It was nothing they were communicating on that would be a reason to do that so he's not sure. Maybe she heard something else. He was speculating that maybe there was another conversation she was hearing."
