How Michelle Obama changed the dress code for White House butlers ... (makes me love her even more) [View all]

How Michelle Obama changed the dress code for White House butlers because she didn't want Malia and Sasha growing up thinking 'African American men serve them in tuxedos'

* Michelle Obama changed the White House dress codes for butlers and also insisted her daughters clean their own rooms and not let maids do it

* The former First Lady said the tuxedos sent the wrong message to Malia and Sasha, who were 10 and seven years old when they moved into the White House

* Obama, 54, said: 'The truth was that some of those men were uncles... Girls would have play dates and that just doesn't even look right to me'

* Obama said that she also 'begged' the maids to let the girls clean their own rooms because they wouldn't live in the White House forever

* She told the housekeepers: 'I'm not raising a girl who doesn't know how to make their own bed!'

...


From a usually unfriendly source, but I think they are being pretty fair this time.

I wonder did Trump change it back?
