What’s the matter?

This picture of President Obama and Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney was taken on Thursday during a visit of the U.S. women’s Olympic team to the White House.

Maroney tweeted:  “Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President..?”

Maroney turned into an internet celebrity during this summer’s games when a picture of her famous scowl went viral and eventually turned into an internet meme.

The 16-year-old Olympian did deliver an impressive display in London, bringing home gold and silver for her country. But it was that latter, second-place finish that drew her ire.

After landing on her butt during an otherwise flawless performance, cameras picked up the unimpressed facial expression during the medals ceremony. Although it has become a permanent part of her image, she’s taken it in good humor.
