This will be brief.
People can be pissed, annoyed, salty, crusty, bitter, stank-eyed, angry…any appropriate adjective they want to be when it comes to O and the Flawless FLOTUS. He’s in charge of running the country, which means that she is running the country. Whether you agree with the Obamas’ politics and decisions or not, they’re adults. You can come for them with no impunity; Americans have the right to disagree with the government. That’s fine and dandy. You think O is a shitty prez, fine. You don’t like Michelle? That’s cool too. Say whatever you want to say about the POTUS and the Flawless FLOTUS. You won’t get any (real) beef from me.
It is unacceptable…ever…to come for Sasha & Malia Obama. It is unacceptable to come for anyone’s children. I’m not a mother, but I am an aunt and I wish a motherfucker would come for any child I give a damn about. I do not have the privilege of knowing Sasha and Malia, but I gives a damn and a clusterfuck of fucks about these two beautiful, innocent girls and I am out for blood.
Steve King (R-IA) called out Sasha and Malia Obama when they were going on vacation with their mother:
We’ve got the president doing these things. He sent the daughters to spring break in Mexico a year ago. That was at our expense, too. And now to the Bahamas at one of the most expensive places there. That is the wrong image to be coming out of the White House.
Apparently, this motherfucker doesn’t remember the sheer number of times W & his family went on vacay, and I’m not going to deal with that (but the commenters do, and do so quite well). And apparently, this motherfucker thinks that the only loot the Obamas have is the $400K/yr that is O’s salary. Big O has made way more money off of his books, and she has made plenty of money on her own. They can afford a vacation anywhere and anytime, and as far as setting an example for the rest of the nation (I can’t even write this with a straight face)…Kim Kardashian’s fake-ass wedding that profited her $18M last year? The 1% popping champagne on Wall Street? The countless other wealthies doing anything and everything they want to do? Bitch, please.
Sorry, but no. No. Working families who plan accordingly take vacations on Spring Break to Mexico, to the Bahamas, to Hawaii, to anywhere they want to go, regardless of the recession. And if Michelle Obama wants to take her daughters on vacation, then she can very well take them on vacation. She can afford it and she ain’t doing anything different than any other mother would. My friends are going on vacation for Spring Break and taking their children because that’s what people do.
Steve King… (and I hate that you have the same name as my favorite author)…Madame, I’m gonna need for you to have an everlasting back seat and shut the entire fuck up. You have no right coming for the Obama girls and you need to keep their names out of your mouth. Don’t you dare say or imply that those girls don’t deserve a break or a vacation, and that their parents are wasting our tax dollars on frivolous trips. NILLA, PLEASE! Try that shit on somebody with a GED because you gets none here. Congressmen have—and take—a shitload of vacation days. So are YOU going to stay at home on those days and not go anywhere and do anything with your family? Are you going to be the shining example of what’s good and proper for our nation…and who in the fuck died and made you the arbiter of such??? Your own party ain’t even trying to hear it from you because you remind them too much of Todd Dumbass Akin. Eat a dick and sit your pasty ass down.
