Stories about the Obama Sisters that were totally false


In the wake of serious sexual assault allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein and the beginning of the movement in November 2017, tabloid magazine the Globe broke the “story” that Malia Obama, who had interned for a summer at the Weinstein Company, was being questioned by the FBI. However, as People reported, the article then qualified its claim, explaining “that the FBI hasn’t actually questioned Malia, instead claiming that unnamed sources said ‘agents want to grill Malia in a hush-hush deposition.'”

The trumped-up headline provoked outrage from none other than former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, who tweeted, “Loathsome. Just loathsome. Please leave Malia alone to lead her own life & keep her out of your (shameful) agenda!” 

Clinton would jump to Malia’s defense again a couple weeks later after photos of Malia seemingly canoodling with a young man started circulating online. Clinton wrote, “Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.”
