GOP aide Elizabeth Lauten has resigned after accusing President Barack Obama’s daughters of lacking class.
Elizabeth Lauten, communications director for Congressman Stephen Fincher, gave up her post on December 1.
She earlier criticized Malia and Sasha Obama on Facebook following their appearance in short skirts at Thanksgiving turkey pardon ceremony.
She later took down the post and apologized for her “hurtful words”.
Elizabeth Lauten had also accused Malia and Sasha Obama of looking bored when they stood with their father at a traditional turkey pardoning event at the White House.
Her deleted post reads: “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.”
The post goes on to advise Malia and Sasha Obama to “rise to the occasion and act like being in the White House matters to you”.
“Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar,” Elizabeth Lauten added.
In her subsequent apology, Elizabeth Lauten wrote: “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 were.
“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.”
She pointed out that she “had judged the two young ladies in a way that I would never have wanted to be judged myself as a teenager”.
Sasha and Malia Obama are among the youngest presidential children at the White House for years.
