A US lawmaker’s communications director pointed out that during Barack Obama’s, former president, Thanksgiving turkey “pardon,” saving two birds from the dinner table speech, his daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama, tended to look bored. This news may not seem so important but oh, it is. Elizabeth Lauten, spokeswoman for Republican Congressman Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, spoke her mind on social media about it (red alert). That, for her, was a big mistake. You must be asking: “Why? She has the right to speak her mind”. Well, you are correct but one thing is speaking your mind kindly, another is being hurtful and trying to offend people. She told the girls directly through Facebook to try showing more class, to respect the part they play. As if that wasn’t enough, she continued with:

“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’. 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.”

After the shots were fired (metaphor), her posts went viral and so she decided to apologize. But for her, it was too late because people already started writing to Lauten’s boss through Twitter using the hashtag #FireElizabethLauten. One man by the Twitter username of Eclectic John wrote: “@ RepFincherTN08 There is nothing that excuses what # ElizabethLauten posted re the children of our President. That’s off limits. Fire her now.”
