Be careful what you post on Facebook! Elizabeth Lauten learned that the hard way over the holidays.
Lauten, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn), came under fire when she criticized Sasha and Malia Obama's demeanor at President Obama's annual turkey pardon on social media.
Her (now deleted) Facebook post read:
"Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you're both in those awful teen years, but you're a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don't respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I'm guessing you're coming up a little short in the 'good role model' department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. 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."
After receiving backlash from commenters across the political spectrum, the G.O.P. aide issued an apology statement.
Officer Darren Wilson was not indicted by a grand jury in the killing of Michael Brown.
While we have since heard responses from both Darren Wilson and Michael Brown's family, President Obama just shared his own thoughts on the decision.
In fact, not only did President Obama issue a statement, he also has instructed the Attorney General Eric Holder to improve relationships between communities and law enforcement.
Here's what our commander-in-chief had to say about the decision:
Wow, what amazing recognition!
On Tuesday, President Obama announced his plans to honor Meryl Streep, Stevie Wonder and news anchor Tom Brokaw with the Presidential Medal of Freedom!
The award, which is the highest honor bestowed to U.S. civilians, recognizes contributions to U.S. security, world peace and cultural achievement.
Well, we definitely think Meryl, Stevie, and Tom have gifted our country with some fantastic contributions!

Ben Stein just threw some MAJOR shade at President Barack Obama during an appearance on Fox News (shocker!) this past weekend.
