I got this picture through Whatsapp. And just to give you a little background I am a Palestinian and a Jordanian who lives the Arab world so the pictured must have traveled a long way to get to me! 

Regardless of the comments I saw, I personally read this picture differently: this picture is not a representation of the degradation of the U.S. simply because each one of the First Ladies is expressing herself differently. Jackie Kennedy was a classy person. But to ask “what happened America?” based on this picture seems to have a hidden racist message. It also seems to imply that the U.S. People should look for a president with a wife that is calm and looks nice in pictures (as opposed to a person who is active as Michelle Obama is in the picture) because that is how a president’s wife should be (nice, white and voiceless). The picture is not only racist it’s also sexist.
