Twitter Gloats Over Michelle Obama's Reaction To Melania's Gift

It is a sad today for America. As Donald Trump gets officially sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, a big part of the country is grieving – not just its past leader Barack Obama or the fact that a foul-mouthed caricature of a person is taking the office, but also its future, one that promises serious uncertainty to majority of its citizens.

However, you can always rely on Twitter to turn the biggest tragedy into, well, a tragicomedy.

This time it has to do with the video footage of the President and the First Lady Michelle Obama greeting Donald and Melania Trump at the White House. Hoping to show a nice gesture (which is also part of tradition), Melania presented her predecessor Michelle with a gift – a blue Tiffany's box.

But the transfer didn't go very well...

Michelle seemed to be caught off-guard by Melania's gift not really knowing what to do with the huge box. This awkward confusion lent itself for what could be this Inauguration Day's best meme yet – the confused and, frankly, annoyed, Michelle Obama's face.

Twitter being Twitter, jumped on it and exploded with memes, best of which we collected below:

Many jumped to point out the very Jim Halpert-esque expression on Michelle Obama's face:

Others took the opportunity to remember the time Melania ripped off Michelle's speech:

Some jokingly argued that maybe Melania does want out but her tyrant hubby won't let her:

But in reality, Michelle's inauguration face was so epic, we firmly believe it's going to go into the history of memes:
