Damn, The Daily Caller is desperate... #Sad Last time I checked Malia Obama is a private citizen and she didn't b…

But others were just impressed by Obama's mad skills.

The only thing I find offensive about about Malia Obama blowing smoke rings is that it confirms she’s so much cooler than I was at 19.
