This picture is offensive on so many levels, I can't even begin to list them all.
cute Beagle puppy was the first thing I noticed in the unaltered picture. His hand on her chest makes sense, too, if the puppy darted out in front of her (like puppies do), and he held he back from tripping over it.
The "editor" seems to have given Sasha some sort of hair extension to block Michelle's face, and maybe moved Sasha up a little, so Obama doesn't have a freakishly long arm, and also so we don't wonder why Michelle is smiling at the ground while her husband molests their daughter.
And, yeah, I'm glad there were no photographers around the day the boychik somehow had one of his boy parts slip out the leg band of his underwear, and came over complaining that his "underwear hurt." I unzipped his fly, adjusted him, and zipped him back up. It probably would have been better to go to the bathroom, but it was aways away, I didn't know what I was going to find. We were at a park, but there were only a couple of other people. If it had been crowded, I think I would have carried him to the bathroom.
But, parents do sometimes have to do things that would be inappropriate for strangers to do. I am not saying that parental molestation never
happens, because clearly it does, but something you catch a glimpse of, or see in a still photograph, is not necessarily evidence of something inappropriate between a parent and a child.
