It has to be hard growing up in the White House fishbowl, but Malia Obama, 18, has grown into a remarkable young woman. Unfortunately, the GOP absolutely love beating up on her.
The Bush twins know what it is like and reached out to the Obama girls, Malia and Sasha, early. Jenna Bush Hager, best-selling author and contributing correspondent for the “Today Show,” said, speaking of Malia and Sasha:
‘I’m fiercely protective of them, obviously. I don’t think that it’s easy. It’s not a job that they wanted.’
‘Obviously I had a hard time [when my dad was in the White House], but it’s also a privilege.’
Republicans seem to have an Obama siblings theme. To them, they are:
‘…arrogant and entitled, simply when they do things that first families have done since time immemorial.’
Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus and his Republican associates are just ugly when it comes to the Obama children. Elizabeth Lauten, a Republican congressional aide, wrote this about the Obama daughters after one Thanksgiving turkey pardoning:
‘Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play.’
‘Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the “good role model” department.’
Lauten resigned for being too obvious, but not for insulting the President and his family. No one speaks aloud of the racism toward the First Family, but critics’ actions and snide remarks tell the whole story.
This week, the president’s daughter skipped the Democratic National Convention. The gossipy GOP loved that. Even better in their critical eyes, Malia “twerked” at Lollapalooza, according to Conservative Outfitters.
Lollapalooza is a four-day music festival held every year in Malia’s hometown, Chicago, and twerking is a dance involving rhythmic gyrating. Republicans forbid this presidential daughter from having fun. If the other kids are twerking, is Malia supposed to do the waltz?
More than one conservative publication has called Malia a “wild child” in response:
‘Wild child Malia Obama has caused yet even more mayhem in the White House after a wild week of partying — including a shocking scene where she lifted her skirt to flash a concert crowd!’
‘That’s after Barack and Michelle Obama were already embarrassed when Malia skipped the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia to attend the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago!’
Conservative Outfitters reported on Malia’s vacation from the White House:
‘The internet went crazy over the weekend when several videos appeared on twitter and YouTube of the President’s daughter Malia Obama dancing on stage at Lollapalooza.’
