Someone’s always got something negative to say.

Earlier this week, we watched as President Obama prepped for Thanksgiving festivities at the White House. In a nationally televised clip, Obama was accompanied by his two daughters during the White House’s annual turkey pardon and the way Malia and Sasha appeared on television rubbed some people the wrong way, especially GOP staff member Elizabeth Lauten.

As seen in the photo above, Lauten rants about the girls, calling them classless amongst other things. Of course her Facebook post generated many comments, including various people mentioning the alcohol charges brought against President Bush’s daughters during his presidency.

Here is what she said in her rant:

Officials at a Northern California private school are apologizing after a lunch menu option to celebrate Black History Month angered some parents and students.

Students at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord wanted to come up with ways to observe the occasion during a lunchtime celebration Friday. But when the school announced a menu of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon, other students and parents became offended.

KNTV-TV reports ( http://bit.ly/1bu28DH ) that school officials held an assembly Wednesday to discuss the issue and also sent a letter apologizing to parents. Principal Nancy Libby wrote that the items were taken off of the menu and that the school doesn’t perpetrate racial stereotypes.

Libby also wrote the school will hold a diversity assembly.

Calls to the school on Thursday were not immediately returned.
