GOP Staffer, Elizabeth Lauten, Resigns After Slamming Sasha & Malia Obama, Calling Them Classless

  • Pin It

The Republican congressional aide, Elizabeth Lauten, who wrote a Facebook post criticizing President Barack Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia, says that she is resigning today.

Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for Tennessee Rep. Steven Fincher, told NBC News by phone Monday that her resignation is already “in the works.”

In a post that went viral over the weekend, Lauten wrote that:

“Dear Sasha and Malia, I get your 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. Neverless, 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 later deleted that post and wrote an apology on Facebook:

“I wanted to take a moment and apologize for a post I made on Facebook earlier today judging Sasha and Malia Obama at the annual White House turkey pardoning ceremony:

When I first posted on Facebook I reacted to an article and I quickly judged the two young ladies in a away that I would never have wanted to be judged myself as a teenager. After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents, and re-reading my words online I can see more clearly just how hurtful my words online I can see more clearly just how hurtful my words were. Please know, those judgmental feelings truly have no pleace in my heart. Furthermore, I’d like to apologize to all of those who I have hurt and offended with my words, and I pledge to learn and grow (and I assure you I have) from this experience.”
