Will the first lady follow through with her threat?
It appears there’s a chance she might do that. In a statement to the Associated Press, a lawyer for the first lady said they were looking at their options for legal action.
“I’m satisfied with the fact that the school admitted that they violated the law and that they are ready to remove the billboards and (Facebook) ads,” lawyer Natasa Pirc-Musar said. “We are still analyzing possible further legal steps.”
Why does this story matter?
It doesn’t, really. Perhaps insofar as an insult to the first lady of the United States can be taken as a slight to the prestige and reputation of our entire nation, but really, if it was an accident on the part of the billboard designers, who cares? This is the kind of story people love to read in order to escape the drudgery of the real news, but let’s not neglect the more important issues that face this country and our fellow Americans.
