Malia Obama is being dragged for allegedly saying that Donald Trump’s supporters in Texas should suffer the wrath of Hurricane Harvey.
The 19-year-old daughter of former President Barack Obama, 55, and former First Lady Michelle Obama, 53, is very popular.
Few weeks ago, her parents accompanied their child to her dorm as she settles in at Harvard.
Just like when Malia was in New York City as an intern for Weinstein Co., every single move she makes ends up on the front page of the news, and she is scrutinized by those who are not fans of her father’s policies.
According to several media outlets, the former first daughter was contacted by a reporter who asked her to share her thoughts on Trump’s response to Hurricane Harvey.
It is worth noting that the natural disaster left a trail of sadness behind.
70 people were killed in the United States, floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, and there are more than 30,000 people displaced.
Additionally, over 17,000 residents were rescued from rooftops and flooded cars.
According to experts, the damage linked to Harvey is estimated between $70 and $200 billion.
The story that is being spread on the Internet said Malia talked to Harvard Quibbler editor Joe Smolsteen and gave the following response.
She said: “They all voted for Trump, let them drown.”
The future filmmaker added: “Let them drown.”
Many are saying the story is fake while others point to the fact that she fought with a conservative reporter named Lucian Wintrich in March.
Wintrich shared: “I started laughing. I turned around, and it was Malia Obama staring me down, so I tried to snap a picture while she was staring me down and she came up to me and started yelling. Malia said to me, ‘Do you want to have a conversation? Let’s sit down and have a real conversation’.And I said, ‘OK, let’s sit down and have a real conversation, why not?’ At that point, security whisked her away at which point I got the shoulder pic that I posted on my Twitter.”
An insider claimed that Barack and Michelle trust Malia and her judgment.
The source said: “Malia [Obama]‘s parents trust her and know she has a good head on her shoulders, but it is still hard for them to let go.”
The person in the know added: “They understand that she is spreading her wings, that she is bound to make some mistakes and they are okay with that. But as much as they trust her they cannot help but worry about her. Malia and her parents are still super close, and she is really sweet with them.She calls them pretty much every night to check in; she is very respectful.”
