The Obamas stingy?
Well, some parents at the Sidwell Friends School (where Sasha and Malia attend) are accusing President Obama and First Lady Michelle of being cheap.
Last weekend was the Sidwell Friends School Dollars for Scholars benefit, where parents chip in various items for an auction.
According to a source with ties to the school, the only items up for bid from the Obamas included a signed copy of the Rolling Stone issue featuring the president and a signed copy of the January Vogue that featured the first lady.
“There were expectations that they might donate something more personal, like the Clintons did,” said another source who knew about the auction. “Lots of people were disappointed.”
Parents were drawing comparisons to Bill and Hillary Clinton, whose daughter, Chelsea, attended Sidwell, too. In 1996 President Clinton offered a round of golf for the auction which sold for nearly six figures and Chelsea offered to babysit.
