On Monday, the right-wing tabloid The Daily Mail posted an article about the secret Facebook account of Malia Obama, former President Barack Obama’s eldest daughter. The site noted that the account, which was reportedly used by Malia during high school and her gap year before college, contained images promoting content like “Donald Trump is evil” and shared numerous private images of Malia with friends and on vacation. A separate article from the previous night exposed pictures of her drinking rosé wine while vacationing in Miami, just a few months before her 21st birthday.
At once, pro-Trump corners of social media went on the attack, firing up the outrage machine:
So Malia Obama drinks and smokes pot. She’s only 20.
Wouldn’t you if you had Barry and Michael as parents?

I thought they were talking about Malia Obama pictured drinking alcohol. Sure enough isn’t 21. But…how do you have a “secret” Facebook page for Trump hate? I wonder if she knows her REAL parents. Imagine the uproar of “racism” if one of Trump’s kids had anti Obama pages.
