Do you think Elizabeth that made provoking comments against President Obama’s Daughters deserve to quit her job? (Drop your comments below)

Elizabeth Lauten, An aide to a Republican congressman has announced her resignation after provoking outrage with comments telling Barack Obama’s daughters to show “a little class”.

Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for Tennessee representative Steve Fincher, wrote a diatribe against Sasha and Malia Obama on her Facebook page on Thursday.

She critized the teenagers after their appearance with the President at a traditional “turkey pardoning” ceremony ahead of Thanksgiving at the White House.

Several commentators reported humorously on the expressions of Malia, 16, and Sasha 13 but Ms Lauten attacked them and their parents.

“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, “She wrote in a Facebook post that has since been deleted. “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”

“Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised, public events,” She concluded.

The post soon went viral, with many critics calling for Ms Lauten’s dismissal, and she later apologised for “quickly judging” the teenagers.



  1. For those who are biased enough to say “there’s nothing wrong with criticizing Obama’s children” Where’s your kid? I want to tell you all the wrong things I find about them. It’s in poor taste. Don’t let your hate for Obama be placed in children who are innocent in all of this. They don’t run the country. He does. Save your criticisms for him.

  2. They are young girls and there was nothing wrong with how they were dressed. Their actions were appropriate. He is our President and he is their Dad. Come on people, show some respect yourselves.

  3. They look dressed like perfectly normal teens- leave them alone! They didn’t run for office, don’t expect them to dress like middle age women!

  4. I think the girls were dressed alright. You must remember that they are like any other teenager standing while a parent is speaking. We must also remember not to place judgement on a child for what a parent is doing.

  5. Wrong is wrong. She is entitled to her opinion but she should have kept her opinions to herself. I hope she thinks twice next time
