Anyone able to make this out?

Came across a video on youtube. It is Obama and his wife at a flag folding event. Michele says something to Obama but I am not good enough to make it out, People are speculating it is something negative she is saying but no one knows.

Was wondering if anyone here is good enough to make out what she says to Obama. Here is a link to the video..

Ever been to a military funeral. The flag ceremony is fantastic. Makes me cry everytime the soldiers give the flag to family members.

I can't catch the first part of her sentence, but the last half is "... fold that flag."

I think it was also a positive comment, because of her smile right after "flag". Whatever it was she said, it was probably in admiration.

This is news...

and apparently, that's not what the people want to hear. We can play along and pretend she said negatives so more people can ramble and have some dirt on Obama & co.

personal honest opinion is she didn't say something negative. The bar blocking part of her mouth for the first few makes it a little bit challenging.

People believe what they want to believe.
Some times the white house gives a person a flag that has flown over the white house and it's considered an honor.

I was wondering what she said too. A lot of people are putting words into her mouth, literally. I had no clue what she was saying and that's why I came here to find out. Thank you all very much .

So is the consensus, "amazing how they fold that flag"

If more people want to reply and let us know what you see her saying, that would be great.

Flag folding ceremonies are touching, certainly, but there's nothing "amazing" about how they fold the Flag. Every military command folds the Flag that way every night. Most military members are taught how to do it. I'm sure the First Lady has seen it done many times. I don't know what was more "amazing" about the way it was folded during the 9/11 ceremony.

Actually, I don't even know why they would be talking at that time. Normally, one doesn't talk during any activity that involves the Colors.

Maybe the video was altered?

Amazing how people are trying to spin this into something positive. The head shake and look of disgust are abundantly evident.

Really? You came on and made an account just to comment on how the deaf people are reading someone's lips? Even to me, a hearing person who stinks at lipreading, I do not see that on her lips.
