    Mrs Obama, please tell Mr Obama not to dance with criminal African leaders like Hailemariam desaleng!! No single Ethiopian elected him. He raped voices of Ethiopian people. He also straightforwardly spoke to kick off America and welcome China!!!!!!!! children and youths are jailed in thousands by his own order to his dogs--killed in thousands!!!!!!
