Michelle Obama found herself a bit blindsided Thursday after a 10-year-old at the White House for a ‘Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day’ event used her audience with the First Lady to hand in her father’s resume.
Mrs. Obama called on Charlotte Bell during a question and answer session at which point the girl explained her father has been “out of a job for three years” as she handed over the piece of paper.
“Oh my goodness,” the first lady responded. She then invited Bell on stage and gave her a hug.
Watch the exchange via ABC News:
“Obviously, she doesn't want to say what it was because her stinking husband's policies are responsible for her dad being out of work for three years,” Pat said. “This is a tough one to blame on George W. Bush, especially since he was employed for the first two years [of Obama’s presidency] and now he's not… Kind of an embarrassing moment, I thought, for the First Lady and for the President because how do you spin that if you're in the White House?”
While the First Lady handled the situation quite well, Pat couldn’t help but point out that when you consider the rhetoric of the Obama Administration as of late, they are actually promoting joblessness.
“The other thing is, ‘Well, that's a good thing your dad is out of work, honey, because now he can work on becoming an artist and still have Obamacare. Isn't that great, sweetheart? You can tell your dad: Learn to be an artist,’” Pat quipped. “This is good stuff.”
