President Obama will exercise his executive privilege to dine with a pretty young lady — whether Michelle Obama likes it or not.
The Telegraph reports that White House officials “insisted” upon inviting the beautiful Yityish Aynaw, 22, to next Thursday’s gala dinner hosted by Shimon Peres, Israel’s president, after Mr. Obama heard how she became the first Israeli of Ethiopian origin to win the Miss Israel beauty queen contest last month.
From The Telegraph UK:
The mass circulation Yedioth Ahronot newspaper reported that Ms Aynaw – who emigrated to Israel from Ethiopia with her Jewish grandparents after the death of her mother when she was 12 – would have the chance to exchange pleasantries with the president.
She told the newspaper that Mr Obama’s status as America’s first black president had inspired her to make him the subject of her high school graduation essay.
“For me, he is a role model who broke down barriers, a source of inspiration that proves that every person really can reach any height, regardless of their religion, race or gender,” she said.
No doubt Mr. Obama is already smitten with the younger, softer version of his wife, Michelle. Expect a personal invite from Barack for Miss Aynaw to visit the White House soon.
