You remember this article - Style, elegance and her mother's winning smile: How Malia Obama, 16, is turning into a Michelle Jr. from the Daily Mail?
Well, heres why - she comes by it naturally! Just look at this photo of Malias Mom (Princeton 85) and Grandma enjoying the Princeton womens basketball game against American University last week:
The girls come from a long line of charmers, which explains their natural teen angst on display at the turkey pardoning event which we need not discuss again. Its just their heritage.
The Obama/Robinson gals went to cheer on Lady Ms niece, Leslie Robinson, who plays basketball for the Princeton Tigers (Shout out and big thanks for the legacy admission to Auntie MO!).
Wait - arent legacy admissions part of that whole white-privilege thing?
Princeton won, of course Ivy League rules!
For his holiday family bonding photo op Big Guy took the girls to a book store in Georgetown on small business Saturday to pick up a stack of books hand selected by key Big White staffers.
Smile like you mean it this time girls!
Included in the 17 books on the Presidential shopping list was Joseph Conrads classic Heart of Darkness which prompted someone at Vox to wonder:
I would be very curious to know who in the Obama White House has taken an interest in reading about colonial depravation and horror in 19th-century sub-Saharan Africa.
Indeed, what significance could possibly be implied from the fact the President of the United States is reading a dystopian tale?
I mean, hes got the Ferguson thing completely under control:
Obama is then scheduled to meet with local and national civil rights leaders.
Civil rights leaders like race-pimp Al Sharpton, no doubt.
We lost the round, but the fight aint over. You won the first round, Mr. Prosecutor, but dont cut your gloves off, cause the fights not over. Justice will come to Ferguson. - Al Sharpton, race hustler, drug dealer, tax cheat, community agitator and carpet bagger.
Perhaps equally concerning, or at least telling, were other staff book selections such as:
Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, by Atul Gawande (non-fiction, about aging, death, and end-of-life care) can you say death panels?
Age of Ambition: Chasing Fortune Truth and Faith in The New China, by Evan Osnos because fortune, truth and faith have left this country
And these, in the Childrens Books category:
Junie B. Jones and a Little Monkey Business, by Barbara Park monkey business really!?!
Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, by Barbara Park spoiler alert: its coming from all the bodies stuffed under the bus.
A Barnyard Collection: Click, Clack, Moo, and More, by Doreen Cronin no comment
Posted from: Michelle Obamas Mirror
Don’t know if Junie B Jones is age appropriate unless it’s for Obama not his girls.
That goes for the Cronin book too. It’s 1st or 2nd-grade level at best.
