Obama, Cameron, Helle Thorning-Schmidt Selfie At Mandela Funeral Was Cool

Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Barack Obama, and David Cameron are right to want to capture the moment. As Prime Minster Cameron put it: “Nelson Mandela played an extraordinary role in his life and in his death in bringing people together. So of course when a member of the Kinnock family asked me for a photograph, I thought it was only polite to say yes.”

There's a lot of wasted hue and cry over the act of making the selfie, rather than asking where can we see it.

How cool is it that World leaders can be able to be human for a moment?   Taken from Zennie62.com: Obama Selfie? Really Helle Thorning-Schmidt Selfie At Mandela Funeral
