Elizabeth Lauten is the disrespectful RNC media specialist who recently wrote disrespectful comments about presidential daughters Sasha and Malia Obama. Her comments received wide coverage and her lackluster apology followed the controversial remarks.

Well, Lauten has know learned that President Obama does not take kindly to attacks on his children. Lauten has been forced to resign from her position in the office of Congressman Stephen Fincher. Her comments about the girls stated in part, “Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised, public events.”

The president has repeatedly stated that families should be off limits to personal attacks. However, that has not stopped conservative media hosts like Rush Limbaugh from referring to the first lady as “Moo-Shell” Obama and making other outrageous comments about her weight.

UPDATE: Elizabeth Lauten has confirmed to multiple media sources that she would be submitting her resignation on Monday, December 1, 2014.
