Sasha and Malia Obama Blasted by GOP Staffer Over Wardrobe, ‘Classless’ Behavior

Elizabeth Lauten, communications director for Congressman Fincher, calls out the first daughters for their clothes, facial expressions while President pardons Turkey on Thanksgiving

A Republican communications staffer blasted President Obama’s two daughters, Sasha and Malia, for their clothing and facial expressions during the president’s pardoning of the turkey ceremony Thursday.

In a Facebook post since deleted, Elizabeth Lauten, who is communications director for Congressman Fincher, took issue with the president’s teenage daughters.

Predictably, this stirred social media reaction.


Under heavy fire, Lauten posted an apology, which has since been deleted.


We will monitor whether Ms. Lauten is still employed on Capitol Hill Monday.
