WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTVR) – President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama found themselves in a spot where only a few lovebirds land: The kiss cam at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.

The couple was attending an exhibition basketball game between the Brazilian and U.S. men’s national teams on Monday night.

As the crowd urged the couple to kiss, the president held his arm around the first lady and smiled, but didn’t kiss, prompting a wave of boos from the crowd, according to pool reports.

But fans didn’t leave entirely disappointed. Not long after the couple shied away from a PDA, reporters were brought back into the arena to watch as Obama and his wife re-appeared on the kiss cam, this time with the president going in for the smooch.
