In my mind; that’s what she must be thinking so surprise, our First Daughter isn’t infallible! By now you’ve probably seen video of eighteen-year-old Malia Obama allegedly smoking marijuana while partying with friends at the 2016 Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago.
This comes after previous footage showed the teen twerking in rather revealing clothing at the same event.
As far as we know, Malia Obama will attend Harvard University starting the Fall of 2017. She has been an exemplary First Daughter so let’s keep in mind; her father chose to be president, not her.
With that said, I am troubled by the onslaught of criticism over this misstep and wish Malia had exercised better judgement; however, she’s young and needs empathy rather that judgement.
Like many teens, this could be an act of rebellion. Fingers crossed the President and Mrs. Obama can reel her in before consequences become far-reaching.
Growing up in the spotlight ain’t easy!
