GOP Staffer Apologizes For Telling Obama Daughters To Show 'A Little Class'



Lauten deleted the Facebook post, but The Root's Yesha Callahan and Gawker captured screengrabs of her comments.
Read the full Facebook post:

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. 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. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events.

Lauten apologized on Friday in a Facebook post that she also later deleted.
"I reacted to an article and quickly judged the two young ladies in a way 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 how hurtful my words were," she wrote. "Please know that these judgmental feelings truly have no pace in my heart. Furthermore, I'd like to apologize to all of those who I have hurt and offended with my words, and pledge to learn and grow (and I assure you I have) from this experience."
Sasha and Malia Obama join the president for the turkey pardoning ceremony every year, a tradition the Obama daughters never seem to enjoy.
