Mysterious selfie purported to be Malia Obama has gone viral

Published

on

After years of careful White House control over her few public appearances, a mysterious online image of first daughter Malia Obama, 16, has gone viral.

The rare glimpse of a personal side of President Barack Obama’s oldest daughter — sister Sasha is now 14 — shows her wearing a tee-shirt printed with the name of the Brooklyn rap group Pro Era.

The photo shows the lanky high school student — or someone who looks very much like her — mouth agape, looking directly into the camera as she arranges her long ponytail.

But no one seems to know who took the picture, or how it came to be circulated on the Internet.

The viral dissemination of the image underscored the perils of life in the White House fishbowl — particularly when its occupants are trying to raise children there — in the age of the Internet and social media.

The White House — which has jealously guarded the Obama girls’ privacy — so far has not commented on the photo.

Page, however, took to Twitter to shred the president for repeating a blatant falsehood.

"This is a lie," she wrote. "Nothing like this ever happened. I wish we had a president who knew how to act like one."

President Donald Trump responded to a week-old tweet from a Fox Business personality about Canada's prime minister and other world leaders mocking him, and spouted misleading claims about NATO allies.

The president falsely claimed in his response to Charles Payne that Justin Trudeau, along with French president Emmanuel Macron and British prime minister Boris Johnson, were actually angry and not laughing about his bizarre news conference at the NATO summit.

"They were just upset that I demanded they pay their fair share for NATO," Trump claimed, four days after Payne's tweet. "Their countries are delinquent. I raised $530 Billion more from NATO countries! Thank you Charles."

Fox News has always been bad — but this week shows it’s willing to destroy democracy for Trump

Published

Fox News has been detrimental to democracy all along, but one journalist and historian believes it's gone fully off the rails this year and become a threat to national security.

Talk show host Stephen Colbert has been mocking the conservative network's commitment to "truthiness" for nearly 15 years, but 2019 has seen Fox News push out Russian disinformation campaigns and attack democracy itself to defend President Donald Trump from impeachment, reported Garrett Graff for Wired.
