Elizabeth Lauten forced to resign

You’d have to be living under a rock to not know who Elizabeth Lauten is.
In case you are, she’s the GOP Staffer who made the ill fated decision to ridicule the POTUS’ bored teenaged daughters for their behavior during the Presidential Turkey Pardoning Ceremony.IMG_1190.JPG
First Daughters’ Smirk & wicked side eye on deck!

Are we done yet? Ugh!

Now I personally found it refreshing that they were honest enough to show their boredom & displeasure. Why you ask?
They are NORMAL Teenagers! That’s why. My kids do it, so does the POTUS’ kids. But everyone didn’t share my opinion.

Elizabeth Lauten, Former ( Yes, I did say FORMER, as in not currently employed by, former) Communications Director for Tennessee Republican Rep. Steve Fincher and a former communications staffer for the Republican National Committee, wrote this scathing post on her personal Facebook page, that went viral :

Really Elizabeth? You of all people should have known better.

This post set off a fire storm of events on Social media, namely Twitter.
The Twitterazzi aka #BlackTwitter #BlackTwitterMafia launched one of the most vicious campaigns I can recall, since I joined the Militia in 2009.
Elizabeth Lauten became a trending topic #ElizabethLauten # FireElizabethLauten.

Demanding her head on a platter ( figuratively) or the next best thing, her resignation. Either would have sufficed.

Imagine my delight when I read that she was forced to resign !

Adults need to understand whether personal or political, children are off-limit. Point blank. Period.

I’d say justice was served. I, for one am happy.

#missionaccomplished
So to her I say: Think twice, type once.

In my opinion the POTUS was like

Cyber bullying the POTUS’ Kids.

Cyber bullying is at an all-time high. Especially when someone, namely an adult, unleashes a barrage of disparaging comments toward the POTUS’ Children.
Not just any nobody for that matter,
Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.).

Being in Communications myself, one must be versed in the rules of engagement, policies and protocols, especially in Social Media postings.

Well maybe sensitivity training, tact, couth or hell maybe even just plain ole’ common sense for that matter, should also be included in the list of things you ought to know.

For any reasonable adult to think that it is okay to cyber bully innocent children, because evidently she has some deep seeded contempt for their parents, is unconscionable.

This is a Public Relations nightmare! Where is Olivia Pope When you need her? Wait! She’s part of the #BlackTwitterMafia πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š

Sasha and Malia Obama are normal teenaged girls, with the exception of being the daughters of THE President of the United States of America.
So the fact that they were less than thrilled to sit through the Presidential pardoning of Turkeys and display their boredom and or displeasure was actually quite refreshing to me.

They’re kids. It’s what they do. There was nothing in their demeanor nor expression that warranted the rant of Elizabeth Lauten.
It’s too long and drawn out to repeat but I’ll attach the screenshot of her rant.

The entire debacle can be read at:

The #BlackTwitter #BlackTwitterMafia wasted no time in rising to the occasion to defend the first daughters.
Involving children in any politically motivated public tirade is a no no, as Elizabeth Lauten quickly discovered as her commentary set Twitter ablaze, she became a trending topic #ElizabethLauten, timelines and her Twitter mentions @DCGopGirl expressed the public’s displeasure.

I am yet to witness or hear of any allegations of improprieties on the part of Sasha or Malia Obama, so for Elizabeth Lauten to advise the to “dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar”, leaves me totally befuddled.

After the firestorm that ensued, Elizabeth Lauten issued this ( in my opinion, facetious ) statement: β€œI 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. Please know that these judgmental feelings truly have no (sic) 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.”

For someone with the credentials that she possesses, this was definitely a low point in her career. Elizabeth needs to practice what she preaches. Think twice and act once. Think before you type! You, my dear Elizabeth Lauten, are an uncouth excuse for a human being.
Quit being a cyber bully. There are laws against that.

I am a Proud Member of the #BlackTwitterMafia.

I am SHE

GM! Thank you Father 4 this day!
She was always very ambitious.
She had a wealth of knowledge and ideas.

But she lacked the confidence necessary to make her dreams a reality.

Then one day she realized, if she didn’t believe in herself, no one else would.

After much soul searching, She found the answers to her questions. Prayer works wonders.

She now believes that with GOD, confidence, hard work and dedication all things are possible.

She now inspires others to realize their full potential.

I am her & SHE is ME!

Have a blessed and productive day ahead,

Che’ xoxo
