Ivanka Trump has joined Sarah Sanders (and Chelsea Clinton) in imploring conservatives not to bully the Obama kids online.
Malia Obama was caught on camera kissing a new boy-toy and smoking pot within the course of a week. Some attention-seekers exaggerated the 19 year-old’s actions as sexually or morally deviant.
Out of line, said Ms. Trump on Twitter.
Malia deserves “the same privacy as her peers,” Ivanka tweeted. “She is a young adult and a private citizen, and should be OFF LIMITS.”
More from The Hill:
Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton are defending former first daughter Malia Obama amid media reports about her personal life.
The current and former first daughters’ defense of former President Barack Obama’s elder daughter came after a video showing her apparently blowing smoke rings went viral. Other media reports in recent months have attempted to chronicle the older Obama daughter’s personal life since she left the White House.
Malia Obama, 19, is currently a student at Harvard University.
Clinton has taken up for her fellow first children before. In August, she came to the defense of President Trump’s youngest son, Barron, after The Daily Caller published a column criticizing the way the 11-year-old was dressed.
“It’s high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves,” Clinton wrote on Twitter at the time.
To address the elephant in the room, yes we assume Ivanka means the reporting too!
We have and will continue to cover the hijinks of celebrity politicians and their families on WLT. Malia’s viral smoke-rings video is sorta charming on its own…she’s being a college kid. We wouldn’t say anything mean about Malia.
However, her parents are FAIR game! Thanks to his decades of hypocrisy on the marijuana issue, Barack deserves blame for any public shaming of his kids when they smoke it.
