Somebody’s gonna learn today what happens when you mess with the daughters of the most powerful man in the free world.
LOL…guess she thought that Barack Obama’s girls were a good target since black women are everyone’s favorite whipping boy, huh? But who could blame Elizabeth Lauton? She probably sees black women thrown under the bus left and right by everybody, so why not feel emboldened to port that the daughters of the first family are little more than bar hoes?
This from the Huffington Post…
Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.), resigned Monday following a Facebook post that criticized Malia and Sasha Obama’s appearance at the annual White House turkey pardon ceremony, according to NBC News.
According to screenshots posted by Gawker on Saturday, Lauten wrote to the first daughters, asking them to “try showing a little class”:
Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the ‘good role model’ department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events.
Lauten took to Facebook again on Saturday to apologize for the rant.
“I reacted to an article and quickly judged the two young ladies in a way that I would never have wanted to be judged myself as a teenager,” Lauten wrote. “After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents and re-reading my words online, I can see more clearly how hurtful my words were. Please know that these judgmental feelings truly have no place in my heart.”
Lauten’s apology came after many on Twitter and Facebook accused her of cyberbullying the Obama daughters. Lauten acknowledged those who were angered by her statements in her apology.
“Furthermore, I’d like to apologize to all of those who I have hurt and offended with my words, and pledge to learn and grow (and I assure you I have) from this experience.”
If more people in power would galvanize against attacking black girls and women and see them as a group you do not DARE disparage, the world would be a very, very different place for us.
