WASHINGTON — A 10-year-old girl gave First Lady Michelle Obama her unemployed father’s résumé during an event at the White House on Thursday.
The first lady hosted the children of Executive Office employees at the White House on Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.
The girl, Charlotte Bell, gave the first lady the résumé during the annual question-and-answer session. Bell told the first lady her father had been out of work for three years.
Bell’s father, who actually worked for the Obama campaign in 2012, recently tried to get a job working for the Obama administration.
The first lady told the crowd the matter was “a little private” and promised to deal with the matter later. The first lady gave Bell a hug and took the résumé with her as she left the East Room.
Charlotte’s family said they joked over the weekend about making a job pitch to the first lady, but her parents did not know Charlotte would give it a try.
