For once First Lady Michelle Obama has done something the right wing agrees with. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) praised FLOTUS in a Facebook post: “Kudos to First Lady Michelle Obama for standing up for women worldwide and refusing to wear a Sharia-mandated head-scarf in Saudi Arabia. Nicely done.”
Of course, the comments on his page about Michelle Obama’s decision to forego the headscarf were just crazy. It’s not even worth repeating.
The White House issued a statement on FLOTUS not wearing a headscarf during trip: “Attire the First Lady wore to Saudi Arabia is the same as former First Ladies.” – @lesleyclark
