For the First Time in Her Adult Life, Michelle Obama Would Have Been Proud to Punch ‘Obama Girl’ in the Face
Filed Under Politics | 4 Comments
Obama Girl, who was two of Barack Obama’s greatest public relations assets during the 2008 campaign if you ask me, has revealed that certain members of Barack’s inner-circle didn’t really appreciate her tireless efforts.
Is this any way to treat somebody who helped put you in the White House?
Amber Lee Ettinger (aka â€œObama Girlâ€) made news with her â€œIâ€™ve got a crush on Obamaâ€ videos during the campaign â€” and with her subsequent grade for Obamaâ€™s first year: B minus.
As she tells the POLITICO Podcast, her time in the media spotlight has yielded some strange moments. â€œI was at the [Democratic National Convention] at a party, and a woman walked up to me. Sheâ€™s making kind of this weird face at me. … Sheâ€™s like, â€˜You know, I work for Michelle, and if Michelle knew I was here talking to you, sheâ€™d want me to punch you in the face.â€™â€
There goes the next Nobel Peace Prize winner.
