The White House insists that the missing kiss was no diss.
Sure, President Barack Obama planted one on first lady Michelle Obama during Monday night's exhibition game by the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team. But that was their second appearance on the Verizon Center "Kiss Cam."
The first time the Obamas appeared on the scoreboard, Mrs. Obama was seen shaking her head "no."
However, spokesman Josh Earnest says the couple didn't realize it was the "Kiss Cam" watching them. He says they found this out after, when their daughters told them. Earnest says reports the president was "rebuffed" the first time "are false."
