As seen on The Five

President Barack Obama, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and British Prime Minister David Cameron snapped a “selfie” today at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in South Africa.

Dana Perino argued that it would’ve been awkward for President Obama to tell Denmark’s prime minister that he didn’t want to take the picture. She added, “I think Mrs. Obama says it all.”

Eric Bolling disagreed, saying that at a solemn event, it’s inappropriate to snap selfies.
