A recently leaked selfie of first daughter Malia Obama has hit the Internet, and it’s quickly becoming the talk of the town.
Not because it shows anything inappropriate, because it doesn’t.
What’s making waves is the rather shady organization Malia appears to be supporting by the t-shirt she’s wearing in the picture.
From Mad World News:
A rare private image recently taken by the eldest of President Obama’s daughters, Malia Obama, surfaced on a presumably locked-down page on the social media site Instagram, before falling into the hands of some questionable rappers with an ironic criminal history.
The musicians-of-sorts used the secret snapshot as an advertisement for their sub-par product line on the site, since Malia was seen wearing their branded shirt, so they shared the picture with this message:
“Malia Obama rocking that classic Pro Era tee! | Make sure you get your official Pro Era gear from theproera.com!”
The guy who runs the organization, Joey Bada$$–the dollar signs are an actual part of this schmuck’s name–has quite a reputation for being a bad dude.
On Friday night, Joey was arrested and charged with assault after punching a security guard in the face when the guard asked to see his credentials before a show in Australia, ABC.net.au reported. Bada$$ broke the man’s nose in the altercation at the Falls Festival near Byron Bay. He was granted bail and is due back in court in March.
Here’s a picture to help you get a feel for the type of people who make up this particular group.
The real concern here isn’t the selfie, it’s why in the world President Obama–the leader of our nation–is allowing his daughter to publicly support a group comprised of individuals who have a history of committing acts of violence?
Let’s be real. This isn’t responsible parenting. Allowing his daughter to be involved with these people, even from a distance, gives them an even bigger platform to express their ideals, which are questionable at this point.
Also, why isn’t greater care being taken to make sure photos of his children aren’t being scattered across the Internet? Surely the president has access to top notch cyber security.
The bottom line here is if a man can’t lead and protect his own family, how in the world can he lead and protect a country?
The short answer is he can’t.
