Malia Obama seems to have a bit of a wild side, and now that she’s a legal adult, she’s letting loose. Although she recently bared more skin than any dad wants to see his daughter showing, as she twerked at Lollapalooza in Chicago, the Obamas seemed to care very little, but that might change after they see what else she was captured doing on video.
It seems Malia’s twerking video at Lollapalooza in Chicago is the least of her problems after another video was leaked, depicting the recent graduate’s wild side. She was caught smoking marijuana — which is illegal in Illinois.
Malia went to the music festival will several friends, but it seems one of those friends isn’t exactly someone she’s going to be talking to for a while. Jerrdin Selwyn, a woman who was partying with Malia, claims that she watched Malia smoking pot during a set by rapper and R&B artist Bryson Tiller, and she has the bombshell video to prove it.
“I caught Malia smoking pot and I have the pictures to prove it. You could smell the marijuana smoke,” Selwyn explained, according to Hollywood Gossip. “I saw some young guy hand her a cigarette and she took at least one hit on it. She had it in her hand for about one minute, then gave it back to him.”
After watching the shocking clip, it does indeed look like Malia Obama was illegally smoking pot. She is clearly seen taking a hit and then quickly passing it in hopes to hide from prying eyes. However, the video was able to capture her actions, and Obama will undoubtedly be infuriated to have the secret exposed. Although it’s hard to say how he feels about marijuana use since he’s been accused of enjoying it himself in his youth, he certainly isn’t going to like Malia drawing attention to herself in such a negative way or having a video circulating that shows her blatant disregard for the law. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
As the haters are eagerly ready to strike the keys, telling others, “Leave the kids alone,” it’s important to remember that she’s not a kid anymore. Furthermore, George W. Bush’s twins and Donald Trump’s children have never been off the table for liberal criticism. So, why should Malia get a free pass — no pun intended. As Trump’s adult children are slammed by the left for hunting trips, at least their extracurricular activities are completely legal and are feeding villages instead of drug dealers.
Lastly, this is about accountability. If Malia doesn’t want criticized, perhaps it’s her actions that need to be rethought, not the comments made after she’s caught. Our First Family should be role models, and this isn’t the example she should set for other young adults. Maybe next time, she will think twice about making a bad choice while the rest of the world is watching — or maybe she takes after her father and doesn’t even care.
