Liberals accuse conservatives of pouncing on Malia Obama stories — but here's the truth

Another fabrication by many in the media

The Daily Mail published two reports about Malia Obama, the daughter of former President Barack Obama, but liberals are falsely accusing conservatives of expressing outrage over the stories.

The 20-year-old Malia was captured in photos sipping expensive rosé in a bikini with her friends in Miami, Florida. In another report, posts from her secret Facebook account revealed anti-Trump messages.

"OMG Malia Obama is a human with political opinions and also enjoys wine," tweeted Ben Shapiro sarcastically.

But while many on the right saw nothing outrageous in the reports, they were accused of stirring up anti-Obama sentiment.

"Conservatives are frothing at the mouth over Malia Obama drinking rosé at a party just shy of her 21st birthday," claimed liberal Imani Gandy.

"Trolling Malia Obama for having fun with her friends and sipping some rosé is even dumber than arugula-gate," said Adam Best. "Conservatives never get sick of embarrassing themselves trying to smear this family."

"Rightwingers are obsessed with Malia Obama today. It's almost as if they wish Barack Obama was still president as much as I do," claimed liberal writer Sarah Cooper

In truth, most on the right ignored the story, or defended Malia Obama.

"In addition to just not being a person who should receive any focus," said popular conservative commentator @Neontaster, "every single one of these Malia Obama stories has been a complete who-gives-a-s**t non-story about a young woman being a young woman."

"Malia Obama isn't responsible for her father's policies," responded Tim Young, "and she definitely wasn't elected to the White House... Sorry, not giving that article the clicks and you shouldn't either. All first kids (who aren't members of white house staff) should be off limits."

"Attacking Malia Obama for drinking at 20 and for having a Facebook page where she does not like the man who took over for her dad and is undoing everything he did is not journalism. It is stalking and shameful. As a conservative and President Donald Trump supporter I disapprove," tweeted conservative commentator Carmine Sabia.

"Hesitant to add anything to such a nothing-story, but agree with @ChelseaClinton whole heartedly. Please don't click on silly stories and let's give Malia privacy," said Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush.

"Everyone on my Twitter feed seems to agree that this Malia Obama thing is not news and doesn't matter and we should just leave her alone," responded commentator Matt Walsh. "Seems like this another fake 'conservatives are outraged about a dumb thing' story that the media has cooked up."
