Obama, McKayla Maroney Are Not Impressed
The 2012 U.S. Olympic gymnastics team stopped by the White House Thursday to visit with President Barack Obama.
McKayla Maroney, known for her jaw-dropping vault, hinted on Twitter Thursday that she may have taken her "not impressed" face all the way to the Oval Office.
Turns out it wasn't just Maroney who was "not impressed,".

Obama had met with the team earlier in private meeting in the Oval Office.
The Fierce Five and other members of the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team got a personal audience with President Barack Obama on Thursday while on tour in Washington.
The group met with the president in the Oval Office before huddling together in the chill outside to watch his helicopter lift off. Obama was headed to New York to tour storm damage.
The gymnasts missed a White House appearance with the rest of the U.S. Olympic team earlier this year because of their national tour schedule.
The Fierce Five – Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Aly Raisman, and Jordyn Wieber – claimed the gold at this summer's London Games. They signed leotards to give to the president's daughters, Sasha and Malia, during the visit.
