It probably should have been Barack Obama's day in the spotlight, but the 2013 presidential inauguration was seemingly hijacked by his impossibly adorable (now teenaged) daughters, his queen of a wife and maybe Beyonce, too. Here are a few of the best GIFs we spotted around the web from the big day.
Gawker grabbed this Number One Stunna GIF from a video posted on a guy's Tumblr. He puts it best when he calls this a "historical moment in shade-throwing" by Michelle Obama, who wants none of whatever nonsense John Boehner just said to her while she was mid-bite. QUEEN OF THE WORLD.
She's going to get so much sideeye from her grandmother when she sees this. The Atlantic Wire posted this one and points out that the yawn seen round the world came during President Obama's speech, right after this line: "No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation, and one people."

Photobomb proof that sisters can be jerks, even when (especially when?) that sister is the First Kid. The look from Dad Obama at the end is priceless. (Same "Really?" look my parents throw at my brothers and I quite often.) via Mashable
Does Bey-Bot need to reboot? I can't stop watching this GIF from Buzzfeed.
Same moment, but look at Bill Clinton.

The president did a lot of cheesing like this all day, so he seems pretty satisfied with the day's festivities. via The Atlantic Wire
Could have used more Joe Biden, though. The VP was on fairly good behavior today (on camera, at least).
