First daughters Malia and Sasha Obama have been called disrespectful and classless by Republican Elizabeth Lauten for their attitude and clothes at this year’s Thanksgiving turkey pardoning ceremony.
Elizabeth Lauten, communications director for Republican congressman Stephen Fincher, made her comments in a Facebook post.
Her comments were heavily criticized and subsequently deleted.
She attacked President Barack Obama’s girls over their choice of short skirts for the annual turkey pardoning event at the White House, and also for looking bored.
Malia, 16, and Sasha, 13, stood next to President Barack Obama during the ceremony.
Elizabeth Lauten said that the girls should “try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play”.
“Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar,” she added.
Elizabeth Lauten’s comment caused outrage on social media, amid accusations that she was “shaming” teenage girls.
