Malia Obama’s still technically getting used to college life, and that means she’s being a typical freshman.
Being a former president’s child easily prepared her for the pressures of the course load at Harvard, but since the spotlight isn’t on her quite as much, mixed with making new friends, Malia has the chance to find herself.
That said, video of her puffing smoke rings in a bathroom with some of her friends recently went viral. Of course, conservatives and Donald Trump supporters went wild and attacked the now-private citizen, you know, because irony is completely lost on them at all times.

Perhaps what's actually troubling is who Malia's friends are. Like, seriously, stop posting her every mood and let her live. Some, like Zonnique, are volunteering to play the role of her college bestie.
Malia O if you ever need some real friends just hit my line🤷🏽♀️❤️— baby spice (@Zonnique) November 24, 2017

All I know is Malia Obama needs better friends who won't put her business online all the damn time.— Johnetta Elzie (@Nettaaaaaaaa) November 24, 2017
I don't want to know what that young private citizen is doing. She's minding her business.
I just want Malia Obama to get some friends who won't film her every time she smokes. Nobody in her circle is loyal at all.— Clever Name ***Need Copy and Link*** (@BienSur_JeTaime) November 24, 2017
Some pretty noticeable people weighed in on all of the criticism of Malia, like Obama family friend Common.
Let Malia live.— COMMON (@common) November 24, 2017
Actuially the support for Malia being Malia even had Trump's and Clinton's agreeing...
Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) November 24, 2017
Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers. She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) November 24, 2017
The rest of the Internet chimed in as well...
Malia living her life. Stay blowed young legend. https://t.co/bGO7YMckoI— bri (@bigshitxtalker) November 24, 2017
Malia Obama is a 19-year-old acting her age at Harvard. She balanced being a kid and being First Daughter extremely well, despite unethical pursuit by the media.— Kaivan Shroff (@KaivanShroff) November 24, 2017
If conservatives are worried about America's teens, they should stop adult men from dating 14-year-old girls.
Malia Obama makes out with a boy and blows smoke rings and Conservatives have a FIT.— Zach Stafford (@ZachStafford) November 24, 2017
Allegations of Roy Moore being a sexual predator come to light and this same people want him in office.
And y'all don't think racism is real? Okay.

We gonna keep doing this, or just let her live? News flash: college isn't just studying, papers and tests. There is some free time, even at Harvard.
