Jinger Duggar defies conservative family values by promoting former first lady Michelle Obama’s memoir – The Sun
JINGER Duggar continues to break away from her conservative family, as she shocked followers by promoting former first lady Michelle Obama’s memoir despite the Duggar’s republican beliefs.
Jinger, 26, posted a video on her Instagram Story promoting Audible audio books.
The Counting On star explained how listening to audio books is a great way to “listen and learn on the go.”
She then posted a screen shot of Becoming by Michelle Obama with the caption: “Listening to this right now…”
The audio book selection left fans shocked, as Jinger’s family is openly republican.
Dad Jim Bob once served as a republican member of the House of Representatives.
Jinger’s younger Jed is currently running for Arkansas House of Representatives for the republican party.
One fan wrote on Reddit: “I do hope Jinger is reading it, and I hope she has an open mind and learns a few things.
A second posted: “It’s a great book, especially when read by Michelle Obama herself. I really hope she does actually listen to the whole thing and realize there are amazing people on the other side of the political spectrum trying to do good things.”
A third said: “I actually hope she is listening to this. It could open her eyes to a lot and if she takes it to heart it really might help her mature. Having a role model like Michelle Obama could change her life and encourage her to actually climb out of the situation she was born into.
“It would take hard work but I feel like she could do it if she found the right support system.”
But some fans aren’t buying it, as Jinger was fired from her sponsorships with Fronuts and designer Rebecca Minkoff because of the Duggar’s anti-LGBTQ views and other controversial beliefs.
One wrote: “I think she’s just posting this book in particular so she looks more relatable, cause she doesn’t want to lose another sponsorship.”
A second said: “I don’t believe she’s reading it. She just wants to make herself seem not hateful. Cue to future sponsorships”
Jinger promoting the book is her latest break from her family.
She moved to from Arkansas to Laredo, Texas for two years after marrying Jeremy Vuolo, 32.
They then moved to Los Angeles so Jeremy could get an advanced master’s degree at a Seminary school in Panorama City.
Since living in California, she has debuted tan skin, short blonde hair and a second hole piercing.
She traded in long dresses and skirts for ripped jeans, jean shorts and short frocks.

Jinger has also broken from her family’s values by hiring a nanny for her daughter Felicity, 1.
Jinger’s mom Michelle Duggar, 53, employs the “buddy system” to care for her 19 children, who she shares with husband Jim Bob, 54.
Jinger has always been the family rebel, as she revealed on 19 Kids and Counting when she was younger that she wants to live in a big city.
She waited a full year to get pregnant with her daughter after marrying Jeremy, unlike her siblings who welcomed children shortly after tying the knot.
