During the White House’s annual participation in “Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day,” Michelle Obama received something unexpected.
During a ceremony in the East Room, Charlotte Bell, 10, told first lady Michelle Obama: “My dad’s been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his résumé.”
The White House declined to comment on the girl with her father’s résumé, calling it a private matter.
The Associated Press reported that Mrs. Obama “seemed taken aback” by the girl’s statement.
“Then Mrs. Obama explained to the other children, who might not have heard the girl’s comment, that it was a private matter but the girl was ‘doing something for her dad.’ Mrs. Obama promised to deal with the matter later.
“When the event ended, Mrs. Obama gave the girl a hug and then reached back to grab the résumé off a table as she left the East Room.”
With unemployment rates rising and the emergency unemployment funds not extended, there are millions of people in the U.S. like Charlotte’s dad.
