(Newser) – Michelle Obama's eye roll at the inauguration luncheon was triggered by a John Boehner crack about her husband's smoking habit, a lip-reading expert tells Inside Edition. Boehner asked Obama if he had had a cigarette before the meal, and Michelle rolled her eyes when the Republican quipped "Somebody won’t let you do it," the expert says. Obama quit smoking in 2010, while Boehner still lights up. The lip-reader's analysis is "not true," a spokesman for the Republican tells the Hill.
