Now that a video of Malia Obama – who, at 19, is an adult and going to school at, of course, Harvard – has gone viral showing the former First Daughter blowing smoke rights, the left [1] has re-discovered the right to privacy:

Both sides of the US political divide are defending Malia Obama’s right to privacy after a video went viral showing the eldest daughter of former president Barack Obama apparently smoking.

Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump were among the numerous defenders of Malia, 19, on Twitter after the video on Friday seemed to show her blowing smoke rings in a bathroom.

“Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better,” Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Democratic former president Bill Clinton and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, wrote on Twitter.

It didn’t apply, of course, to Sarah Palin’s family, or George W. Bush’s daughters. But hey, better late than never.

Make no mistake – I agree with them. Presidents’ kids should be off-limits (and presidents should keep their minor children off-limits). Former presidents’ kids, even moreso, unless they do something to make news on their own.

College kid smoking? Dog bites man.

Harvard kid being an idiot? Dog licks self.
