Many times over the last two years, Barack Obama has admonished the press to keep his daughters out off their radar screens — only to parade them in front of Hollywood gossip cameras and People magazine photogs when it suited them.
Just a few weeks ago, the White House wagged its finger at the media to stay away from Sasha and Malia because they are “not public figures.”
But last week, both POTUS and FLOTUS shoved daughter Sasha into the limelight to sell Obamacare.
JWF notes the contradiction in tale-telling — POTUS said baby Sasha was diagnosed with meningitis, FLOTUS says she was not:
Who are we to believe? I know the Obamas detest our medical profession, but can they please provide us with the medical diagnosis so we can sort out the truth? I know, I know, this is racist for me to ask, but since this was only seven or eight years ago, I’m sure these records are still on file, so we ask the Obamas to please provide the public with the medical records so we can get to the bottom of this mystery. It’s pretty simple. Your daughter either was diagnosed with meningitis or she wasn’t. If she was, one of you are lying. If she wasn’t, one of you are lying.
Please clear this up for us. No doubt on one of the five news shows Barack is appearing on Sunday someone will ask for a clarification, right?
And don’t count on David Letterman to ask when Obama visits for an interview tonight on his increasingly politicized late night talk show (take a look at my recap of Letterman’s whitewash of John Holdren for a reminder).
Mr. and Mrs. Obama: Take your own advice. Fight your own health care takeover battles — and leave your kids alone!
