(Newser) – Michelle Obama is getting a little attention after today's inaugural luncheon. Sitting between President Obama and John Boehner, the first lady seemed to roll her eyes at the House speaker—not once but twice, reports the Huffington Post (here's the video). And President Obama may have touched on the friction during his short remarks: "Michelle and the speaker of the House came to a meeting of the minds that I may be delaying the proceedings too much," he said. "And so I'm just going to be extraordinarily brief and say thank you."

But the president kept joking aside when he ended with a toast, Mediaite reports: "There is controversy about the quality of our president," he said, "no controversy about the quality of our first lady." He also remarked that "democracy is not always easy," and "the longer you are there, the more humble you become." The menu, however, seemed less humble: Washington's finest started with lobster tails, moved on to hickory-grilled bison, and ended with desserts including artisan cheeses. CBS has the full menu.
