The first family attended the match-up between the University of Maryland Terrapins and the Oregon State Beavers, which Michelle’s brother, Craig Robinson, coaches.
The Obamas generally try to catch a Beavers’ game whenever the team plays in the Washington area, but this time, their attendance drew criticism in light of the Midwest tornadoes. For example, there was this from the American Thinker:

Twitter posts were also critical, such as these posted by Fire Andrea Mitchell:
