Pete Souza / The White House

In this handout image provided by The White House, President Barack Obama jokingly mimics U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney's "not impressed" expression while greeting members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics teams Thursday in the Oval Office. Maroney's expression became an internet sensation when, during the ceremony for her 2012 Olympic vault silver medal, she was photographed giving a brief look of disappointment with her lips pursed to the side. Steve Penny, USA Gymnastics President, and Savannah Vinsant laugh at left.
