She was this close — this close — to getting out of the White House unscathed.
Then Malia Obama went to Lollapalooza in Chicago last week.
First, videos emerged showing the 18-year-old first daughter twerking at the concert, and some people freaked out, heads exploding that she acted like an 18-year-old.
But this “bombshell” is a bust, according to the court of public opinion.
“First daughters: they’re just like us,” wrote New York-based Complex magazine after the video emerged.
On social media, reaction to the video is a loud “Who cares?”
Comedian Chris Rock twitted: “Malia Obama was caught smoking weed. If she’s not careful she might end up winning 21 Olympic gold medals or becoming president of the USA”
Was Malia betrayed by a friend who shot the video and made a killing selling it to gossip columns? It seems this is the case. Mark Dice threw a thinly veiled shade at the snitch tweeting: “As George Orwell warned, the people have become little spies and snitches. Malia Obama hit a joint at a concert. Big freaking deal.”
